Manfred Wiebelt is a development economist whose research focuses on the interactions between policies, economic growth and poverty, primarily using computable general equilibrium (CGE) and micro-simulation modeling. Past research focuses on evaluating structural adjustment and stabilization programs, designing sustainable management strategies for tropical forests and other natural resources, operationalizing pro-poor growth strategies, and assessing the impacts of climate change and other external risks.
