Envecon 2011: applied environmental economics conference. Date: 04.03.2011. Site: London, UK. Deadline: 05.01.2011
The UK Network of Environmental Economists (UKNEE) is pleased to announce that envecon 2011: Applied Environmental Economics Conference will take place on Friday 4th March 2011, at The Royal Society in London.
Now in its 9th year, this one-day conference will bring together environmental economists from public and private sectors, academia and consultancy to share results of recent research and to discuss issues relevant to the practical application of environmental economics in the UK, Europe and elsewhere.
By creating a mutual platform for those who commission work and those who undertake it, the conference aims to contribute to the effective use of environmental economics for environmental policy and management, as well as influence the research agenda.
We would like the final agenda to include papers on the TOOLS OF ENVIRONMENTAL ECONOMICS:
A. Economic valuation
B. Economic appraisal
C. Economic instruments
Themes A – C can be in any sector so long as they show how these tools are applied in practice. Some ECONOMIC SECTORS have been more of a focus for greening the economy and examples of how environmental economics is used in this process will be interesting.
Please submit your abstract by the 5th January 2011 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
