The CERDI (Centre d’Etudes et de Recherches sur le Développement International –Centre of Studies and Research on International Development) from the University of Auvergne is organizing a Conference on Environmental Economics and Natural Resources Management in Developing and Transition Economies, to be held:
in Clermont-Ferrand, France, on November, 18 – 19, 2010Developing and transition economies will be increasingly concerned with environmental and natural resources management issues; they will have to solve a three-fold challenge: a better environment, good economic performances and poverty reduction as targeted by the Millennium Development Goals. For instance, the recent CoP 15 in Copenhagen showed that climate change will have more severe impacts in developing countries and moreover emerging countries are expected to increase emissions in the near future. The year 2010 was declared the International Year of Biodiversity by the United Nations which helps reminding that developing and transition countries will play a crucial role for promoting biodiversity conservation. Developing and emerging countries will also have to tackle with increasing scarcities: water, fertile lands and fisheries as well.
This conference is intended to share research and gather feedbacks on works in progress and completed papers as well. It will bring together theoretical and / or applied papers relying either on theoretical and / or econometric modelling, and putting forward policy implications posited in international and national agendas. Contributions borrowing from different scientific fields are also welcome. The deadline for submissions is extended to October 17th 2010 (see the call for papers for more details).
The conference will present parallel sessions as well as plenary ones dealing with major issues of sustainable development in developing and transition economies (climate change, biodiversity and aid). See the conference program for more details.
Invited speakers are:
John Hudson (University of Bath)
Katheline Schubert (University of Paris 1 - Centre d'Economie de la Sorbonne)
Thomas Sterner (University of Gothenburg)
