    The basic econometric model for the suggested interaction effect of resource endowments and institutional quality on economic growth is borrowed from Boschini et al., 2007 and Brunnschweiler, 2007. The approximation for institutional quality must be carefully chosen. The standard proxy variables that are typically employed in the literature with respect to the resource curse are indices such as ICRG, BERI, BI ratings (pioneered by Knack and Keefer, 1995; Mauro, 1995), and the Worldwide Governance Indicators (WGI) suggested by Kaufmann et al. (2010). However, a potential bias in these indicators may arise from the fact that they are based on the subjective assessments of respondents. For instance, the evaluators may be more likely report that governance in a country is good during times of strong economic performance. The use of CIM also has potential risks if the measure is idiosyncratic and irrelevant to contract enforcement and property rights. Clague et al. (1999) reviewed case studies from several countries and found that CIM is a good measure of institutional quality, though some country examples demonstrate idiosyncratic cases. We also use the indicators of governance used by Kaufmann et al. (2010) such as Voice and Accountability (VA), Political Stability and the Absence of Violence (PA), Government Effectiveness (GE), Regulatory Quality (RQ), Rule of Law (RL), and Control of Corruption (CC)—with CIM, was illustrated to examine the suitability of CIM as an institutional quality variable.

    The data set contains registered land leases obtained by mostly private individuals in the Upper West Region from 1976 to 2013. The data covers the sections or communities and districts where the land transactions took place.

    To support farmer’s decision making regarding soil management, the main objective of this study is to understand the patterns of spatial variability of the soil properties of the deposit areas that might affect plant growth and crop productivity. For this purpose, soil samples were taken from 310 locations distributed in four reclamation areas of 50 ha each established in 2014, 2010, 2006 and 2002 in El Bagre, Antioquia.

    The Data was collected by an online google form survey between April-July 2018, sent to the network of Regional Centers of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development. The data were used to analyze the role of these networks for implementation of SDGs, in different levels such as local, national and international. Data were analyses through descriptive statistics and Network Analyses.

    In a randomized field experiment action- and outcome-based payments for environmental services (PES) were examined. The main aim of the study was to investigate the effect of the outcome-based contracts in conservation auctions, and to prove the theoretical prediction on their improved environmental performance. In addition, the study examined gendered behavior. The data sheet contains data from the (i) baseline survey, (ii) experimental auction, (iii) environmental performance (tree survival) and tree watering monitoring, and (iv) evaluation survey. (i) All households at both right and left riverbanks of the Kapingazi River, in the demarcated research sites, were targeted for the study. In total 427 households received invitation to participate in our study, out of which 411 provided data for an extensive baseline survey. Aiming at a gender-balanced study, a random draw was used to determine whether a male or female household representative is to be approached. (ii) The auctions took place on December 14, 2011. In total, 234 landholders participated in the conservation auctions. The participants were stratified upon income level and gender, and from each stratum the farmers were randomly assigned to one of the two treatments - either the auction for action- or outcome-based contracts. The total budget for both auctions was approximately 1,770,000 KES (around 20,000 US$) while aiming at an equal number of contracts for each treatment. Consequently, 60 contracts in each of the two auctions could be offered. Due to number of farmers opting for a drop-out, 44 action-based and 54 outcome-based contracts were finally signed. The conservation contracts requested to plant 30 indigenous trees on the riparian area, without any further limitations on the land use. In the action-based contract the payments were conditional on finding the soil around the trees to have sufficient levels of soil moisture at the time of monitoring. Under the outcome-based contracts the payments depended on the tree survival after the six-month period, independently of the actions taken. (iii) During the contract period, the landholders with action-based contracts were monitored twice on the compliance with the tree-watering requirement. Farmers with the outcome-based contracts were monitored on the tree survivals at the end of the contract period, in June 2012. At the same time, tree survival rates of the action-based PES scheme were recorded for the research purpose. (iv) The conservation payments were awarded in July 2012, and subsequently an evaluation survey with the contract holders was conducted.

    The Household module questionnaire was used to list all the members of the selected households and basic characteristics of each listed person, such as age, sex, education, relationship to the household head and other household level information. The household questionnaire also collected information about total agricultural productions and sales, livestock ownership, holdings of various consumer and durable goods and other income sources, food and non-food expenditures, labor and time use, and household members’ health status in the last two months preceding the survey.

    Environmental Democracy Index (EDI) consists of 75 legal indicators developed under 23 of the UNEP Bali Guidelines that are concerned with the development and implementation of legislation. In addition to the legal indicators, EDI includes 24 supplemental indicators that assess whether there is evidence that environmental democracy is being implemented in practice. The EDI legal indicators assess laws, constitutions, regulations and other legally binding, enforceable rules at the national level scores. TRANSPARENCY Pillar contains following Guidelines:- Guideline 1: "Accessibility of Environmental Information Requests" ? Guideline 2: "Environmental Information in Public Domain" ? Guideline 3: "Grounds for Refusal" ? Guideline 4: "Environmental Information Collection and Management" ? Guideline 5: "State of the Environment Report" ? Guideline 6: "Early Warning Information" ? Guideline 7: "Capacity-building for access to information (There are no indicators for this guideline)"

    The Panel survey on Integrated Aquaculture-Agriculture (IAA)was conducted among the indigenous communities in northern and northwestern region of Bangladesh (Netrokona, Sherpur, Rangpur, Joypurhat, Dinajpur). The aim of the survey was to understand the performance, determinants and impact of IAA value chain activities. Entire data sets contains there file, one contains three wave (2007, 2009 and 2012) panel data on IAA value chain participation and welfare impacts, and other two contains cross sectional data on cost and return of value chain activities as well as farmers perception on socio-environmental impact of IAA versus rice-monoculture. Whole data sets contains information on household socioeconomic characteristics, cost and return of IAA value chain activities, farmers perception on IAA versus rice monoculture, welfare outcome variables.
