Environmental Protection and Sustainability Forum 2022

3-day international forum on international and global environmental problems

The nature of this 3-day international forum is unprecedented. It involves facilitated debates, interactive discussions and top level knowledge exchange in an intimate atmosphere, quite different from other major international conferences.
There will be:

  • 10 keynote lectures by leading international academics
  • A public lecture open to people from government, business, science and the local community
  • 40-60 contributed papers

The forum focuses on international and global environmental problems, including for instance climate change and biodiversity and the link between trade and the environment. All methods (e.g., econometrics, simulations, game theory, experiments) typically used in environmental and resource economics are acceptable. Possible topics include:

The role and assessment of

  • pre-negotiations, negotiations and bargaining as well as global and local institutions
  • R&D, mitigation, adaptation, geo-engineering, loss and damage
  • spillovers, private and co-benefits
  • issue linkage, asymmetry, environmental, ecological, technological and societal thresholds and tipping points as well as networks
  • policy instruments, including environmental and trade measures at the domestic and international level
  • net-zero pathway analyses
  • linkages between trade and the environment
  • domestic and international law
  • population development and use of environment
  • risk, uncertainty and learning
  • weather variability and climate change impacts on the economy (developing and developed countries, national and subnational)

for the successful implementation of domestic and international environmental policies. New and other topics not on this list are also considered if they break new ground.
From a methodological point of view, contributions in the realm of game theory, behavioural economics, econometrics, including experimental economics and quantitative political sciences are strongly encouraged. We also welcome CGE and IAM models on climate change with a global focus.

Like at the previous two forum events, we plan to edit a special issue in one of the leading environmental and/or general economics journals after the event with the best papers. The call for this special issue will be announced separately in due course.
