Monash Environmental Economics Workshop (MEEW)

Monash University is delighted to invite you to this year’s Monash Environmental Economics Workshop (MEEW). The 2023 iteration of MEEW will take place fully in person, in line with the event’s goals of strengthening our environmental economics community. MEEW 2023 will take place on 30 November – 01 December in the Caulfield campus, Melbourne.

Hosted by the Energy, Environment and Resource Economics research group at the Department of Economics in collaboration with the Centre for Development Economics and Sustainability (CDES), MEEW is a research-intensive workshop with relatively long presentation slots (30-40 minutes) and ample time for discussion. We welcome papers on environmental and resource economics, with theoretical, experimental, and empirical papers equally valued. We also welcome proposals of thematic sessions of 2-3 papers.

Keynote speaker and other plenary sessions: We are delighted that Professor E. Somanathan (Economics & Planning Unit, Indian Statistical Institute) will be the keynote speaker of this year’s edition of the workshop.

The workshop will also host a panel discussion of the Nature Repair Market with Graeme Samuel (Monash), David Pannell (UWA), James Watson (UQ), Catherine de Fontenay (Productivity Commission) and Jack Pascoe (Melbourne).

Submission deadline: Paper submission is open via ConferenceMaker until 18 August2023. We expect to notify the presenters of accepted submissions by mid-September 2023.

PhD students: If you are a PhD student and require financial support to be able to participate and/or want to be considered for the best student paper, please inform us at the time of submission.

Participants from low-income countries: Accepted presenters who are based in low-income countries may also benefit from the additional generous support from CDES to cover part or all of the expenses associated with their participation in the workshop. Please inform us whether you would be requiring this type of support at the time of submission.
