In southern Nepal, it is common practice to dispose crop residue (such as rice straw) by burning it in the field. This causes many environmental problems because biomass burning contributes to smoke, black carbon and greenhouse gases. To try and find a solution to this challenge a SANDEE study from Nepal has looked at what incentives might stop farmers from burning their rice straw. The study is the work of Krishna Prasad Pant, from the Economic Development and Policy Analysis Centre in Kathmandu.
