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

This event is a partnership between LSE Geography, Imperial College London and the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment.

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.

Our keynote speakers are Ann Harrison (University of California, Berkeley) and Matthew Kahn (Johns Hopkins University).
