FAERE 2017: An unanimous success

The 4th Annual FAERE Conference (French Association of Environmental and Resource Economists), organized by LEF (INRA / AgroParisTech) in collaboration with BETA (University of Lorraine, University of Strasbourg, CNRS), held in Nancy on 12 and 13 September.

The aim of FAERE annual conferences is to promote the production and dissemination of research in environmental economics. All theoretical and applied works on topics such as biodiversity, fisheries, agriculture, forestry, water, energy, climate, pollution, green growth, or bio-economy are welcome . Four themes were particularly highlighted by the scientific committee this year: (i) evaluation (value of non-market, ecosystem services, sustainability criteria, equity, risk ...); (iii) environmental policies (taxation, voluntary agreements, permit markets, labeling, etc.) and (iv) the economics of the network industries (energy, drinking water, sanitation, waste, etc.).
The conference was an opportunity to bring together more than 120 researchers and young researchers, from various institutions and nationalities, around two plenary lectures and numerous presentations remarkable for their originality and quality. Let us remember Several highlights of the conference:

  • Plenary lectures given by Christopher Costello (University of California, Santa Barbara) and Alexander Pfaff (Duke University, Stanford School of Public Policy);
  • The prize for the best article by a young economist was given to Marion Dupoux (EconomiX, CNRS, Paris Nanterre University), for her article "Beyond perfect substitutability in public good games: heterogenous structures of preferences";
  • André Grimaud (TSE) was elected an honorary member of FAERE.

We would like to thank the FAERE for organizing this event, the members of the scientific committee, the organizing committee, the EWL and the BETA, and all the participants for their contribution to the success of this conference!
