3rd Annual LSE Workshop in Environmental Economics

 22 - 23 June 2020

The workshop will bring together top scholars from around the world to share their latest research in applied environmental and development economics.

We are pleased to announce that the third LSE Workshop in Environmental Economics will take place online on 22-23 June 2020

This year we have partnered with Imperial College London and the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment. 

COVID-19 (coronavirus) update

Please note that due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the LSE Workshop in Environmental Economics will be moved online. 

Our annual workshop brings together top scholars from around the world to share their latest research. The workshop is also a great platform to identify areas where further academic work is needed and to foster new collaborations.

The programme will consist of full paper presentations, a session of egg-timer presentations for early career researchers (PhDs/Postdocs), and a policy session.
