Annual Meeting

Information about EfD's Annual Meeting Nov. 15-19

The EfD Annual Meeting is the largest annual conference in the Global South on the application of environmental economics to development.

The EfD Annual Meeting this year will be held virtually this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic on November 15-19, 2021, at 14:00-17:00 CET (UTC +1).

The program entails keynote speakers and parallel session presentations. The parallel session presentations will comprise paper presentations and EfD collaborative programs policy discussions. Presentations will cover several EfD thematic areas such as agriculture, air quality, biodiversity, carbon pricing, climate change, conservation, energy, experiments, fisheries, forestry, gender, health, land, and policy design.

The last day of the conference is dedicated to the launching of the project entitled “Inclusive Green Transitions for Sustainable Development in the Global South”. This project is awarded to EfD and funded by IDRC.

The virtual meeting is open to the public (that is, no conference fee). However, participants would have to register before the conference.

The deadline for the submission of papers has passed. However, if you would like to submit a paper for the EfD Annual Meeting next year, keep an eye on the EfD website or sign up for the EfD newsletter to stay up to date on submission deadlines.
