May 31st –June 1st, 2018, INRA – Université Paris-Saclay – AgroParisTech
Climate Change, Biodiversity and Food Sustainability

Global changes such as climate change, international trade agreements, loss in global biodiversity and volatility of world food prices pose challenges for agricultural production, the sustainability of renewable resources, and the well-being of consumers. These global threats require not only the analysis of existing national and international policies, but also require thinking about the design of innovative policies that could reconcile economic, environmental and social goals. Policies that will be discussed in this conference include agricultural, environmental, land use and food policies, and trade measures. The objective of the conference is to discuss recent theoretical and empirical contributions in economics on these topics.

The academic conference is run over two days, and comprises four thematic sessions. There are four paper presentations in each session and there are no parallel sessions. The number of participants will be limited to around 100.

Conference Venue
INRA-AgroParistech, Amphithéatre Coléou,

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.




30 November- 1 December 2017, Florence, Italy
Annual Conference on the Economic Assessment of European Climate Policies

The Florence School of Regulation – CLIMATE Climate) of the European University Institute is organising its Annual Conference on the Economic Assessment of European Climate Policies, to take place in Florence, Italy, on 30 November- 1 December 2017.

Each of the first three sessions will feature an invited speaker:

· Energy efficiency: Andreas Löschel (University of Münster and Centre of Applied Economic Research Münster, Germany)

· Renewable policies: Carolyn Fisher (Resources for the Future, USA)

· Environmental taxation: Cameron Hepburn (University of Oxford and London School of Economics, UK).

The EU ETS session will be part of an event organised within the EU-funded project LIFE SIDE, where policy makers and stakeholders will discuss past and future developments of the system. During the session, the results of an economic assessment of the EU ETS, carried out within the project, will be presented.
