November 16-17, 2017 – Toulouse, France
Workshop Economic Analysis of Environmental Food Policies

 

The workshop will take place Toulouse School of Economics, Manufacture des Tabacs, 21 Allée de Brienne, 31042 Toulouse cedex, France.

After fossil fuels, agricultural production and fisheries are the two main industries that impact the environment the most. They are significant contributors in terms of climate change but also in terms of eutrophication, land use, water use and toxicity. The environmental impact of food is in large part determined by household diet and consumption habits. Population and economic growth should lead to an even higher environmental impact on the future if patterns of production and consumption are not changed. The objective of the workshop is to discuss recent theoretical and empirical contributions in economics on the analyses of environmentally-friendly public policies at the consumption, distribution, processing and farm level.

Deadline for paper submission: June 18, 2017
Papers should be sent to workshop.pav[at]lists.tse-fr.eu.fr.
A decision will be made by 7 July, 2017.
Call for papers : call for papers.

23 – 24 November 2017, Valenciennes, France
“City, transport and sustainable mobility” Thematic Research Workshop

The University of Valenciennes and Hainaut-Cambrésis is organizing a THEMATIC RESEARCH WORKSHOP on 23 and 24 November 2017 on the theme “City, transport and sustainable mobility”.

The issue of transport and, more generally, the evolution of mobility in urban and peri-urban areas has become a key issue in the energy and ecological transition. While it is acknowledged that technical progress will not be sufficient to meet the current environmental challenges (scarcity of resources, multiple pollution, conflicts in terms of biodiversity, climate change, etc.), alternative land-use and land-use change practices still arouse many debates and are slow to materialize as concrete achievements.

Your communications proposals are expected (extended summary or full article) by September 27, 2017.

Submissions should be sent by e-mail to the following address: idp[at]univ-valenciennes.fr.

Important dates:

Deadline for submission: 27/09/2017

Notification of acceptance: 13/10/2017

Application deadline: 27/10/2017
