Matteo Borzoni print

Matteo Borzoni has had a varied career in development, training and research in a range of countries, with a primary focus on Latin America, Africa and Italy. His academic interests are in multi-scale integrated assessment and multi-criteria analysis of energy sources, transition management, rural development, institutions, development economics and poverty reduction. These are approached by integrating insights from complexity theory, ecological economics and new institutional economics.
