Professor Jha works on an analysis of poverty-nutiriton in rural India as part of a project for the Deparment for International Development (DFID), UK. I am also collaborating with University of Warwick, UK, and FLACSO, Argentina, to examine the developing country interest in global environmental institutions. His current work includes determinants of poverty, undernutrition and inequality in India, the behaviour of retail prices for foodgrains in India, the sustainability of the public debt in developing countries and the linkage between macroeconomic stabiliziation and banking crises in semi-open developing countries. Recent conference attendances include the Econometric Society Meetings, Canadian Economic Association, International Atlantic Economic Society and NBER conference on Distributional issues in environmental policy.
