The Heartland Environmental and Resource Economics Workshop was held for the fifth year at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on November 2 – 3, 2013. Topics for contributed paper sessions were chosen based on the submissions we receive. The day-and-a-half long workshop (Saturday lunch through all day Sunday) featured:
- A luncheon with keynote speaker: Timo Goeschl (University of Heidelberg): ““Microfoundations of Global Climate Change Policies: Lab and Field Evidence”
- A luncheon with panel discussion: Catherine Kling (Iowa State U.), Sheila Olmstead (UT-Austin), & Jeffrey Peterson (Kansas State U.), “Emerging Challenges and Solutions for Water Quality and Supply”
- Multiple sessions of contributed 20-minute paper presentations
- One set of 8-minute short research presentations
- Numerous breaks to share ideas and develop new collaborations
- Research posters displayed during breakfast and breaks
The goals of Heartland@Illinois are to stimulate research and build community in environmental economics with a focus on the Midwest. The workshop will bring people together to exchange ideas and foster new collaborations. Through selected paper sessions it will identify pressing public policy issues and emerging research themes on environmental and resource economics. Finally, it will provide networking and development opportunities for graduate students in environmental and resource economics.
Organizers: Professors Amy W. Ando, Kathy Baylis, John Braden, Nick Brozovic, and Madhu Khanna from the Department of Agricultural and Consumer Economics at the University of Illinois.
