4 october 2018 – Paris, France
Annual Conference of the Climate Economic Chair “Climate Change and Economic Development”

The rapid economic development and increasing energy needs of developing and emerging countries imply a crucial need to better assess the conditions and feasibility of those countries in the context of climate change.
Economic development implies increased energy and other goods consumption, which requires to anticipate the paths that will ensure sustainability and low climate impacts in the long run. Moreover local development cannot be thought without considering land-use implications and the risk of resource depletion.
On the international agenda, increased participation of developing countries is essential, in order to foster the compatibility between legitimate development goals and necessary environmental targets. Further, the joint objective of adaptation and mitigation is decisive when considering the developing world.

This annual edition of the Annual Conference of the Climate Economics Chair will shed lights on these issues, by bringing together researchers in economics, finance and econometrics.

13-14 december 2018 – Nantes, France
“12th Social Science Research Days (JRSS) SFER-INRA-CIRAD”


The 12th SFER-INRA-CIRAD Social Science Research Days will take place on Thursday 13 and Friday 14 December 2018 in Nantes. These days constitute an important gathering of the French-speaking scientific community in economic, human and social sciences, which works in the fields of agriculture, food, the environment, rural or coastal territories, fishing and forestry.

Society and political actors have crucial choices to make for the future in these areas which affect economic competitiveness, food security, climate change, natural resource management and land use planning. Our responsibility is to enlighten decision-makers and to accompany the actors of society involved in the changes to be undertaken. For this, scientific debates within our community are necessary to open original avenues of research, produce ideas and innovative solutions for tomorrow, both in the countries of the North and those of the South.

Original research contributions (economics, management, sociology, political science, law, geography, history, anthropology, etc.) that have not been published in English or French are welcome. A special place will be reserved for young researchers and doctoral students.

Communication proposal procedures

Only proposals for full paper, even provisional, in French or English submitted on the platform will be considered. A call for proposals for special sessions will be issued very soon.

Deadline for receipt of proposals: 7 September 2018

Communication submissions must be submitted on the dedicated platform: Communication submissions
The decision of the Scientific Committee for each proposal will be notified from 20 October 2018.
