Presidential Correspondence arrow2

NyborgBy Karine Nyborg, EAERE President
Dear Members,
Another summer has passed, and with it several successful EAERE events. First, it was wonderful to see so many of you during our Annual Conference in Prague! Second, this year EAERE has co-organized two summer schools: Ariel Dinar was responsible for the 2012 EAERE-FEEM-VIU European Summer School on Management of International Water, while Giovanni Signorello and Fabio Eboli co-ordinated the Belpasso International Summer School on Sustainable Development: Theory and Measurement Methods. Evaluation surveys confirm that all three events were greatly appreciated by the participants. My sincere thanks to everyone who helped making all this happen!

KoundouriBy Phoebe Koundouri, EAERE Newsletter Editor
Dear friends,
Here's our Autumn Newsletter! I truly enjoyed editing this issue and I hope that you will find it interesting and stimulating to read.
The NL's feature section is a series of reports on our annual conference in Prague. My approach with this section was to ask a number of distinguished members of our Association, both established researchers and dynamic newcomers, to send short descriptions and thoughts on keynote speeches they attended, or sessions they chaired or attended. The response was enthusiastic and I hope you will gain a summary insight to our conference by reading it. Moreover, thanks to the Conference Local Organizing Committee, you can watch videos of the plenary and policy sessions, accessible from the NL as web links.

Environmental and Resource Economics (ERE): The official journal of EAERE - Editorial Report arrow2

ERE coverIan Bateman, ERE Editor-in-Chief

Submissions to ERE
2012 looks like being another good year for ERE with submissions again exceeding previous records (see Figure 1). The submissions base continues to rise with more countries than ever sending in papers to the journal (see Table 1).

Journal impact factor
There are now a number of measures assessing the impact of published papers and the journals in which they appear. These differing measures all have their own strengths and weaknesses. The ISI impact factor (IF) is a relatively conservative measure, however it is also one of the most well established. This defines the impact factor for 2012 as follows: IF2012 = Number of citations to ERE papers published 2010-11 Number of ERE papers published 2010-11 Figure 2 illustrates the development of the IF for ERE over the past decade. This shows a strong upward trend in ISI IF over this period with ERE attaining its highest ever ISI IF of 1.523 in 2012.

Reflections on EAERE 2012 arrow2

EAERE12

By EAERE/2012 Local Organizing Commitee
The 19th Annual Conference EAERE 2012 was held from 27th to 30th June, 2012 in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, and was visited by around 700 participants from 50 countries. As for most of the EAERE conference organisers in previous years, it was the first time for us and we would once more like to express our gratitude to the EAERE council for selecting our candidature and thus giving us this opportunity.

In Prague, we had 458 presentations in 121 parallel sessions including 13 special sessions. In total 1,178 papers were submitted that were all evaluated in a blind review process by two reviewers. For this we needed 279 reviewers who did a tremendous job of ensuring the quality of the presentations and who contributed a great deal to the success of the conference.

Interviews with Karine Nyborg, Jean Philippe Barde, Ian Bateman, Kerry Smith

(From the interview with Karine Nyborg)
What role can the Association play in the coming years?
One of the current goals of the current council is to improve the connections with the policy arena, since both researchers and policy makers need to be in touch with each other. On one hand, researchers can gain new ideas and interesting hypotheses from policy makers in order to understand how things work in the political sphere; on the other hand policy makers need to know the most important research results. This is a connection that is hard to keep, since many researchers don't usually have time to disseminate the results of their work and most policy makers don't have time to actually read research papers.

EAERE Presidents’ Dinner, Prague, June 28, 2012 arrow2

Convery

By Frank Convery, EAERE Honorary President and Former EAERE President (2004-2005)
Feelings about clubs are at best ambivalent. Groucho Marx’s observation comes to mind: “I don't care to belong to a club that accepts people like me as members.” Membership of the EAERE Presidents’ club is like being a member of the Euro zone; once you are in, it’s very difficult to get out.

Presidents are elected to serve two year terms, commencing with Henk Folmer, our inaugural President (1992-93), followed successively by Rudiger Pethig (1994-95), Domenico Siniscalco (1996-97), Aart de Zeeuw (1998-99), Alistair Ulph (2000-01), Klaus Conrad (2002-03), Frank Convery (2004-05), Anastasios Xepapadeas (2006-07), Thomas Sterner (2008-09), Partha Dasgupta (2010-11), Karine Nyborg (2012-13), with President-elect Anil Markandya to serve from 2014-15.

At our annual conference in Prague, past, present and in waiting Presidents of EAERE met for dinner, where we were joined by our conference host, Milan Scasny and our Secretary General, Monica Eberle. All attended except Henk Folmer, Alistair Ulph and Domenico Siniscalco, who were initially to come, but a combination of urgent obligations relating to travel, business and family in the end precluded them from joining us.

Report: Key Note Lecture - Integrated Assessment Modeling in Economics and Climate Change arrow2

GoeschlBy Timo Goeschl, EAERE Council Member
Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs) have become a mainstream tool in the analysis of climate change and climate policies. To no small measure, this is thanks to William Nordhaus who presented this keynote on Integrated Assessment Modeling. Bill Nordhaus has not only been a tireless advocate of the merits of IAMs, but more importantly his own contributions have demonstrated that IAMs can be both feasible and meaningful. Many researchers, also outside economics, have come to rely on his DICE and RICE models as lodestars in the IA modeling of climate change.

As he made clear at the beginning, Bill Nordhaus’ keynote lecture was meant to do two things. For one, it was meant as a review on why economists were engaged in IA modeling, what they had learned, and why it mattered for policy. As an inherently interdisciplinary exercise, building an IAM is both intellectually exhilarating and frustrating: “Climatologists have no interest in giving you a two-equation climate model,” joked Nordhaus.

Report: Key Note Lecture - Economic Analysis for Ecosystem Service Assessments arrow2

Roseta-PalmaBy Catarina Roseta-Palma, EAERE Vice-President
In this session, Ian presented work developed during the UK National Ecosystem Assessment (UK-NEA), which provided an evaluation of the ecosystem services in the country combining natural science and economics. From 1950, there have been large physical increases in provisioning services but significant decreases in other types. The first step in the economic analysis was to identify appropriate valuation methods for market and non-market services, focusing on marginal values where possible. Then the UK-NEA team also defined six possible policy scenarios to 2060, of which the extremes were “World markets” (WM) and “Nature at work” (NW), the latter being the most protective of the environment.
As an example of the work, Ian showed the audience the results, predicted by the models of agricultural land use, for the impact of climate change to 2060. Using market prices for traditional farm output, the gains would be higher under the WM scenario.

Report: Key Note Lecture - Valuing Nature in a General Equilibriumarrow2

DitezBy Simon Dietz, London School of Economics and Political Management
In the third and final plenary lecture of the conference, Kerry Smith took stock of the state of environmental economics and how it relates to mainstream economics, reflecting on some 42 years of experience in the profession that started with Resources for the Future.

He argued that environmental economics has been, and continues to be, seen by the mainstream as a specialty. Moreover he linked this detachment with a failure in economic modelling of the benefits of environmental regulations to consider general-equilibrium effects (note that this criticism was applied to the benefits side of the ledger rather than the costs of regulations, where the tradition of modelling in a general equilibrium is much more established, if not yet ubiquitous).

Report: Panel Session on Rio+20 arrow2

BardeBy Jean-Philippe Barde, EAERE European Practitioner Achievement Award winner, 2012
The role of environmental economists is crucial for the conception and deployment of sound environmental and sustainable development policies. Over the past twenty years, this discipline has exerted a growing influence at the national and international levels. For instance, several countries now make a significant use of economic instruments such as environmental taxes and tradable quotas. At the international level, the implementation of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change is strongly influenced by economics (Clean Development Mechanism, Joint Implementation, EU ETS etc.).

Report: Policy Session - Economic Valuation of Ecosystem Services, Natural Wealth Accounting and Support to Macroeconomics Policy arrow2

NunesBy Paulo A.L.D Nunes, The Mediterranean Science Commission - CIESM
Wealth Accounting and the Valuation of Ecosystem Services (WAVES) is a global partnership initiated by the World Bank that aims to promote sustainable development by ensuring that the national accounts used to measure and plan for economic growth include the value of natural capital, including ecosystem services. This global partnership brings together a broad coalition of UN agencies (e.g. UNEP, UNDP, UN Statistical Commission), national governments, international institutes, nongovernment organizations and academics with the objective to (1) implement environmental accounting based on the SEEA (System of Environmental and Economic Accounting) and mainstream in policy, (2) contribute to the development of internationally agreed approaches for ecosystem service accounting, particularly the monetary aspects, and (3) promote widespread implementation of environmental accounting through the partnership.

Report: Special Session - Market-Mediated Effects of Biofuelsarrow2

KhannaBy Madhu Khanna, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
Biofuels have gained attention as a strategy for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from transportation fuels. However, concerns about their indirect impacts on global emissions because they affect food and fuel prices and affect land use and fuel consumption in the rest of the world have led to scepticism about the climate change mitigating benefits of biofuels. Estimates of the magnitude of these effects show a great deal of variability and policy decisions to include them in regulations in the US and recently to exclude them from EU renewable energy policies have been highly contested.

Report: Parallel Session on Energy Sources arrow2

CarsonBy Richard Carson, University of California, San Diego
The first of several energy sessions at the EAERE meeting featured papers on modeling key questions related to contemporary policy issues. The first paper, “Stationarity Changes in Long-Run Fossil Resource Prices: Evidence from Persistent Break Testing” presented by Aleksandar Zaklan, examined recent developments in time series analysis with an eye toward modeling the price path of different types of fossil fuels. The paper’s empirical application looked at U.S. price series for oil, natural gas and coal and found that the dynamics of oil prices are substantively different from that of the other two price series.

Report: ParalHanleylel Session on Choice Modeling arrow2

By Nick Hanley, University of Stirling
Many excellent and interesting papers were presented at the 2012 EAERE meeting in Prague. I was fortunate enough to be asked to chair one of several sessions on choice modelling, which showed up the great range of policy issues to which the technique is now being applied, as well as some of the methodological problems that are interesting researchers. On the policy side, Anna-Kaisa Kosenius presented a study which quantified the benefits from protecting coastal ecosystems in the Baltic, looking at comparable results for three countries (Finland, Sweden and Lithuania).

Report: Special Session - ‘Groundwater and Ecosystems: Economics of Groundwater and Management and the Well-being of Ecological Systems’arrow2

By Encarna Esteban, Centro Universitario de la Defensa and Ariel Dinar, University of California Riverside
The special session ‘Groundwater and Ecosystems: Economics of Groundwater Management and the Well-being of Ecological Systems’ organized by Dr. Encarna Esteban and Dr. Ariel Dinar was held on June 28, 2012. This special session focused on the economics of preserving groundwater related ecosystems. The economic study of groundwater management has been broadly studied in the literature. However, the relationship between groundwater and ecosystems is still scantly analyzed from an economic perspective. Papers in the session emphasized the challenge and importance of maintaining a good ecological status in ecosystems dependent on groundwater bodies.

Valuing Natural Capitalarrow2

DasguptaBy Sir Partha Dasgupta, Former EAERE President (2010-2011) and EAERE Council Member
Since the 1970s, valuing environmental resources in the United States has mostly meant valuing environmental amenities and objects of intrinsic value. Sophisticated techniques involving surveys (CVM, travel cost) and the study of market prices of real-estate (hedonic prices) were developed by economists so as to estimate the shadow prices of beaches and parks and endangered species. This was valuable work, but ultimately hugely limiting. The literature has had little to say to someone who wants to study the value to households of their local environmental-resource base in, say the highlands of Ethiopia, or to someone who wants to develop the way national accounts ought to be prepared. Although there are types of natural capital that are consumption goods, many are producer and capital goods. And in many parts of the world there is no formal market for land.

EAERE Practitioner Achievement Award in Applying Environmental Economics, 2012arrow2

By Jean-Philippe Barde, EAERE European Practitioner Achievement Award winner, 2012
Dear colleagues and friends,
I am very honoured and grateful for this EAERE « Practitioner Achievement Award in Applying Environmental Economics » which I see not only as a recognition, but also as the outcome of a long standing cooperation with many of you, whom I am so happy to meet again, here in Prague.

I remember when I started at the just created OECD Environment Directorate in 1971. As I was hired, I was then a young and non-experimented economist. This was the time when the “Club of Rome” was raising the issue of the limits to growth. I remember discussions with Alexander King, OECD Director of Science, who was a leading member of this club. This was really a very exiting time…

EAERE Member wins the FEEM Awardarrow2

LatzkanoBy Itzi Lazkano, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
The FEEM Award rewards new ideas addressing key economic issues and it is given to the authors of the three best papers presented by young economists at the annual congress of the EEA. I received this award for my work entitled "Intergenerational Externalities and Sustainable Growth" where I examine how intergenerational externalities distort the demand for clean technologies and why this might be critical for sustained economic growth.

A common view is that to ensure the well being of future generations, the current generation must trade-off economic growth and environmental quality. While this may be true, the costs of sustainable growth are lower when ongoing technological progress provides an innovative set of clean technologies.

EAERE Best Poster Award arrow2

Poste PrizeBy Emmanuelle Lavaine, EAERE Best Poster Award winner, 2012
In year 2012, the Best Poster Award was given to Emmanuelle Lavaine, CES Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne - Paris School of Economics and Matthew Neidell, Columbia University for their paper "Morbidity and Sulfur Dioxide: Evidence from French Strikes at Oil Refineries". In this original and state-of-the art paper, the authors show how we can use a natural experiment, namely labor strikes at French oil refineries, to understand more about the size of the morbidity impacts of SO2 emissions. With an original method and thoughtful empirical execution, the paper give rise to potentially significant policy implications regarding pollution standards.

The guided tour has highly improved the poster session this year. Participants have been able to present briefly their paper to an audience within 5 minutes. Commentsand questions have been discussed afterwards in more details. The tour gives more visibility to the author. It encourages the audience to stop to discuss your work, or to focus on a particular issue.

A New Blueprint for a Green Economyarrow2

Cover_New BlueprintBy Ed Barbier, University of Wyoming, USA
Published in 1989, Blueprint for a Green Economy presented, for the first time, a policy strategy for "greening" modern economies and putting them on a path to sustainable development. Sadly, the lead author of Blueprint, David Pearce, passed away in 2005, and it fell to Anil Markandya and me to produce a new version of our landmark book. The result is A New Blueprint for a Green Economy, recently published by Earthscan from Routledge for Taylor & Francis, which again addresses the main Blueprint themes.

Blueprint for a Green Economy was never intended to be a book. Rather, it was a report commissioned by the UK Department of Environment, to assist them in formulating a policy response to the 1987 World Commission on Environment Development – the “Brundtland Commission” – which first defined and popularized the concept of "sustainable development"1.

National Resource Discoveries: a Blessing for the Wise arrow2

By Leonor Coutinho, University of Cyprus and Theodoros Zachariadis, Cyprus University of Technology and EAERE Cyprus Country Representative

Recent discoveries of natural gas reserves in the Eastern Mediterranean have generated certain euphoria among politicians and the population, and a certain sense of relief from the pressures imposed by the global financial crisis, which started in 2008 and is expected to endure well into 2013 for many countries. This optimism is due to the anticipation of the future growth and wealth that the exploitation of the natural gas may soon bring to the region. It is important to notice however that, according to the literature, such expectations may or may not materialize. Experience shows that the exploitation of natural resources in a country poses many challenges, which only sensible choices and good policymaking can overcome.

It is … an ETS! arrow2

LerouxBy Anke Leroux, EAERE Australian Country Representative

After a failed attempt to introduce emission trading legislation in 2010, Australia successfully implemented its carbon pricing scheme in July 2012. While commonly referred to as a carbon tax, it is really an ETS to be rolled out over several phases. Until 2015, an un-capped number of permits will be sold at a fixed price of $23, rising at 2.5% per year.

This is followed by a cap and trade system with some provisions for a price ceiling until 2018. The objective of the carbon price is to ensure that Australia meets its Cancun pledge of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 5% relative to 2000 levels by 2020. Caps are pre-announced for a five-year period, but legislated default caps are in place to ensure the emission reduction goal is achieved. The scheme covers 60% of Australia’s emissions and less than 400 liable entities.

Thomas Sterner to work for the Environmental Defense Fund in New York arrow2

SternerBy Thomas Sterner, Former EAERE President (2008-2009)
Thomas Sterner has been recruited as Visiting Chief Economist at the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) headquarters in New York. EDF is one of the larger and most influential of environmental think tanks or advocacy groups in the USA. It was once formed around the struggle to ban DDT in the wake of Rachel Carson`s Silent Spring and has since then succeeded in promoting radical change through such mechanisms as permit trading for sulphur and the promotion of catch shares in fisheries. As these examples indicate, EDF is very conscientious about their work being based on sound science and economics and they therefore employ a staff of both economists and scientists to make sure that the organisation continues to adhere carefully to the latest in scientific evidence.

Visit by EAERE members Håkan Eggert and Thomas Sterner to the European Parliament to discuss reform of EU fisheries policiesarrow2

By Thomas Sterner, Former EAERE President (2008-2009)
A fisheries reform package is under discussion in the EU Parliament and the Council of Ministers with the aim of more sustainable Common Fisheries Policy. This includes both an overhaul of the basic regulation (COM(2011) 425 final) and the European Fund for Fisheries and Maritime Affairs (COM(2011) 804 final).

Following the principle that it is not enough to do research and publish “policy relevant” research – that you actually sometimes may have to engage the policy makers more directly, a few of EAERE environmental economists including Håkan Eggert and myself travelled with a group of Swedish marine biologists, legal and other experts – including Peter Olsson, Chair Demersal Committee, Swedish Fishermens Federation to Brussels to participate in a couple of related events in April 2012.

Report on EAERE representation and the Socio-Economic Assesment Committee under the EU's REACH Regulationarrow2

Mike Holland, Katarina Gårdfeldt, EAERE delegates at ECHA, and Stavros Georgiou, Chemicals Regulation Directorate, UK Health and Safety Executive, UK
REACH is the Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals which entered into force on 1st June 2007 and replaced the former legislative framework on chemicals of the European Union (EU). The principle aim of REACH is the protection of human health and the environment, which may be affected by negative externalities associated with chemical production and use. The general approach to achieving this aim is by placing some form of regulation on the way in which a chemical can be manufactured and used, either through the need for registration, authorisation or a restriction.

Many studies have established the need for ambitious international climate agreements and strong domestic climate policies. Early steps include the Kyoto Protocol and the EU Emission Trading System, and these and future efforts will have important consequences for the oil market. At the same time, energy-importing countries are concerned about energy security and oil dependency.

Australia's carbon price: innovative design, tricky politicsarrow2

JotzoFrank Jotzo, Crawford School of Public Policy, Australian National University (ANU)
After many years of policy development and political debate, Australia has introduced a carbon pricing mechanism. The policy has a number of innovative features, including broad coverage of emissions sources, recycling of permit revenue including income tax cuts, and phasing in with a fixed permit price before linking with the EU ETS. However the policy’s political durability is not assured.

The carbon price, which came into effect on 1 July 2012, covers over 60 percent of Australia emissions. It includes most emissions from fossil fuel combustion. It also includes industrial emissions and fugitive emissions from waste and fossil fuel extraction. Only agriculture, forestry and fuel use by private cars and small commercial vehicles are excluded; agriculture and forestry meanwhile are included in a domestic offset mechanism.
