Erin Pischke (EEP PhD alum) and Adam Wellstead authored the article Reimagining instrument constituencies: the case of conservation policy in Mexico in Policy Sciences (2020).

We examine Mexican instrument constituencies that have promoted use of a payments for ecosystem services (PES) program, the payments for hydrological services (PHS) program. Instrument constituencies are groups of policy actors who are bound by an interest in a particular policy instrument or solution.

Shan ZhouShan Zhou co-authored the article, “Collaboration mitigates barriers of utility ownership on policy adoption: evidence from the United States”, published in the Journal of Environmental Planning and Management.

This paper offers an answer to the question: “To what extent does collaboration between utilities and local governments influence energy policy adoption?” Cross-sectional data from the United States–focused Integrated City Sustainability Database (ICSD) are used to investigate the degree that specific city attributes and state policy influence the creation of city-scale energy policy.
