8th IAERE School on “Natural hazards, human disasters: economics and policy of extreme events”

The Department of Economics of the University of Roma Tre and the Italian Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (IAERE) are thrilled to announce the 8th edition of the IAERE School on “Natural hazards, human disasters: economics and policy of extreme events”.

The School will be held on September 23-27, 2024 at the Department of Economics of the University of Roma Tre. The School will be organized in 7 teaching modules and 2 lab sessions. A roundtable with invited speakers and open discussion will conclude the School.

The School will also offer the opportunity to students to present a research proposal. The best proposal will be awarded with a scholarship for a research-visiting period abroad.

AIM

In recent times, climate-related extreme events such as hurricanes, floods and droughts have become more frequent and call for a timely and effective responses by both central and local administrators. In fact, despite improvements in early warning systems and post-disaster recovery measures, extreme events still have devastating impacts on societies and take a huge toll in terms of casualties, material deprivation, productivity and altered power relations. The aim of the Summer School is to explore the economic analysis of risk assessment and warning systems, discuss planning and recovery strategies to mitigate, prepare for, and respond to natural hazards, and provide an in-depth inquiry into successful adaptation strategies for reducing the negative impacts of climate-related extreme events.

11th Annual Conference of FAERE (French Association of Environmental and Resource Economists)

 

Since its creation in 2013, FAERE’s objective has been to bring together environmental economists in France and to facilitate mutually beneficial scientific exchanges, in addition to and beyond those already existing in research units or within more general or international associations. The association’s mission is to strengthen the interest of economists in these topics, while the threats and challenges to our development have become great, to stimulate reflection and discussion between French and foreign colleagues, and to promote the work done in this field. We also want to strengthen our links with our foreign colleagues, especially in Europe, by working closely with the national associations that represent them, such as the Spanish-Portuguese Association of Environmental Economics (AERNA) or the Italian Institute of Environmental and Natural Resource Economics (IAERE). In this sense, we will have an active communication of the event towards these two associations for a maximum of submissions from their members, in addition to those made by the EAERE (European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists).

Organized over two days, the conference will bring together up to 170 people (for 130 presentations). In addition to the presentations of the selected papers, we will organize two sessions with invited speakers:

  • A keynote speaker : Professor Susan Chilton,
  • A round table with three invited speakers
    • Julie Subervie, Senior researcher, INRAE, CEE-M, Montpellier,
    • Julien Hardelin, Head of the Biodiversity and Resources Office, General Commission for Sustainable Development, La Défense,
    • Harold Levrel, Professor, AgroParisTech, CIRED, Nogent sur Marne.

The Scientific Committee is composed of 28 persons (12 women, 16 men), and the Local Organising Committee by 8 persons (5 women, 3 men). Please find here their CVs.

XXV ANNUAL BIOECON CONFERENCE – “Economic Development, Population Dynamics and Biodiversity Conservation”

Keynote Speakers

Professor Elizabeth J. Z. Robinson Professor Paul R. Armsworth
London School of Economics and Political Science University of Tennessee

 The Scientific Partners of BIOECON are pleased to announce the Twenty-fifth International BIOECON Conference on the theme of “Economic Development, Population Dynamics and Biodiversity Conservation”. The Conference will be held at Kings College, Cambridge between the 4th – 6th September 2024. BIOECON XXV will be of interest to both researchers and policymakers working on issues associated with issues at the interface of economic development, conservation and population pressures.

Our keynote speakers will be Professor Elizabeth J. Z. Robinson (Director of the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), UK) and Professor Paul R. Armsworth (Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Tennessee, Knoxville, USA).

In addition to the conference theme, BIOECON XXV aims to have parallel sessions on a broad range of topics within the umbrella of biodiversity economics including: the role of biodiversity and ecosystem services in economic development, plant genetic resources and food security issues, deforestation and development, fisheries, institutions and instruments (e.g. Payments for Ecosystem Services), biodiversity finance, development and conservation, wildlife conservation and endangered species, international trade and regulation and climate change. For a flavour of previous conferences go to this link http://www.bioecon-network.org/pages/events-01.html.

In particular, submissions are invited on the themes of:

  • Instruments for conservation in the context of land-use and biodiversity
  • Innovative financial mechanisms for conservation
  • Evaluation of biodiversity-related policies and programmes
  • The use of spatial data to study impacts on biodiversity and conservation programmes
  • The conservation and value of crop genetic diversity
  • Institutional frameworks for resource conservation (property rights, market instruments etc.)
  • The role of behavioural economics in biodiversity conservation policy design
  • Experimental (lab and field) approaches to biodiversity and ecosystem service conservation
  • Institution-building for provision of global public goods
  • Issues of governance and management of natural resources in developing countries
  • Development, growth and resource constraints
  • Resources management, distribution, development, poverty alleviation.
  • Experimental or survey research on the households’, investors’, or executives’ biodiversity preferences or beliefs.

Aligned with the conference theme we will also run a special session on “Population, Fertility Decline and Resource Exploitation:  The Future of Biodiversity” that will be hosted by Prof Timothy Swanson from the Centre for International Environmental Studies (CIES) at the Geneva Graduate Institute (IHEID). The special session welcomes papers addressing any issues regarding population, fertility, dependency, global land use and the impacts of these issues regarding natural resources. Authors that wish their papers to be considered for the special session should make this known upon submission.

BIOECON also has the goal of influencing policy-makers and policy. To this end expert policy panels will be organised. The purpose of these panels will be to bring together practitioners (Government, private sector, NGO) and academics from different disciplines to discuss current policy related issues in biodiversity conservation and environment. The panel sessions will be supported by and contribute to the aims and goals of the funding partners. The precise composition of the Policy Panels is to be announced.

THE VENUE

Early Career Workshop on the Environment, Climate Change and Disasters. Socio-economic Impacts and Adaptation

The workshop provides a precious opportunity to young scholars to facilitate the dissemination and exchange of cutting-edge scientific research on different topics of applied environmental economics involving various socio-economic dimensions such as for firms, the labor market, as well as the health and development of human capital. In addition to serving as a platform for scientific dissemination, the workshop aims to enhance the connections between European and non-European universities, as well as between universities and private research institutions.

The event brings together a small number of young researchers and doctoral students, giving them the opportunity to present their preliminary work to a highly selected and internationally diverse audience. It will feature the participation of three distinguished scholars who will deliver keynote lectures and a selected scientific committee that will attend the workshop, providing valuable advice.

The expected number of participants ranges from a minimum of 8 to a maximum of 10 speakers. Papers using applied micro methods will have priority. To encourage diversity and inclusion, applications from female, female-identified, or non-binary presenting authors are particularly welcome. All selected contributions will be presented in plenary sessions to maximize participant involvement and interaction.

Selected speakers are offered up to 2 nights of accommodation and meals, including the social dinner. Financial support is gratefully acknowledged from the GSSI, FEEM and University of Urbino.

The event will be hosted by the Social Sciences Area of the Gran Sasso Science Institute in L’Aquila (Italy). L’Aquila is a city rich in culture and history. In 2009, it was hit by a powerful earthquake and was rebuilt with the aim of transforming it into a “city of knowledge”. The GSSI, a public higher education institution encompassing four scientific areas (Physics, Mathematics, Computer Sciences, and Social Sciences), was established in 2016 to support the city’s and the region’s new vision. The Workshop also provides a valuable opportunity to visit the wonderfully restored city, its beautiful monuments, churches, and parks. L’Aquila also offers excellent food options.

Post-Conference Workshop: REE / JEEM Workshop on Nonmarket Valuation

Resource and Energy Economics (REE) and the Journal of Environmental Economics and Management (JEEM) are delighted to announce a call for papers for the first of two REE / JEEM Workshops on Nonmarket Valuation. These workshops will be staged immediately following the Annual Conferences of the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists in 2024 and 2025. Selected papers from these workshops will appear in special issues in REE (from the 2024 workshop) and JEEM (from the 2025 workshop).

The first workshop will be held on 5 July 2024 at KU Leuven. The workshop will consist of a pre-conference dinner on 4 July followed by a full day of presentations on 5 July.

Authors are invited to submit empirical and theoretical papers on any topic related to the nonmarket valuation of environmental and natural resources. Papers may cover revealed preference (e.g., hedonics, travel cost, averting behavior), stated preference (e.g., contingent valuation, choice experiments), or benefit transfer applications, along with related topics such as the application of nonmarket valuation methods to natural capital accounting. Abstracts or incomplete papers will not be considered. Submissions from any region of the world are welcome, but those from European researchers or on topics of policy relevance to Europe are particularly encouraged.

Please do not submit identical papers to both the EAERE conference and the REE/JEEM Workshop. There can be overlap (similar topics, similar datasets, even similar models), but at a minimum, the workshop paper should cover something materially different from a paper presented at the conference.

Each paper will be allocated 45 minutes at the workshop, including discussant comments and audience discussion. After the workshop, participants will be asked to submit revised papers to an REE special issue on nonmarket valuation. These papers will be subject to a rigorous but expedited review process for the special issue. Submission fees will be waived.

The Program Committee, consisting of Professors Robert Johnston of Clark University, Roger von Haefen of North Carolina State University, Sandra Rousseau of KU Leuven, and Klaus Moeltner of Virginia Tech, will select roughly eight papers for presentation based on their overall quality and potential impact on the field. Depending on the mix of submissions, the committee anticipates selecting a few themes around which to organize selected papers.

A modest honorarium ($500 US) will be offered to each presenter to partially defray travel and lodging expenses. The deadline for submissions is 15 March 2024. Authors will be notified of acceptance decisions no later than 10 April 2024.

Please submit electronic versions (preferably *.pdf) of your paper and a 2-page vita here. When submitting, authors must acknowledge that their paper is not currently under review at REE, JEEM, or elsewhere.

There will also be a limited capacity for non-presenters to attend the workshop. If you are not planning to submit a paper but would like to attend the workshop, please express your interest using this link. We will let you know in early April if our conference venue is large enough to accommodate your attendance.

Questions about the conference may be sent to jeemconference@gmail.com or directly to members of the Program Committee.

This event is organised with the support of EAERE.
