Social Media RSS Feed en ECONOMIC ANALYSIS OF ENVIRONMENTAL FOOD POLICIES <p><strong>AIM</strong>.</p> <p>After fossil fuels, agricultural production and fisheries are the two main industries that impact the environment the most. They are significant contributors in terms of climate change but also in terms of eutrophication, land use, water use and toxicity. The environmental impact of food is in large part determined by household diet and consumption habits. Population and economic growth should lead to an even higher environmental impact on the future if patterns of production and consumption are not changed. The objective of the workshop is to discuss recent theoretical and empirical contributions in economics on the analyses of environmentally-friendly public policies at the consumption, distribution, processing and farm level.</p> <p><strong>TOPICS OF POSSIBLE INTEREST</strong>.</p> <p>A non-exhaustive list of topics to examine the economic challenges for a more sustainable society includes: sustainable food consumption, quality choices in food production and processing, contractual arrangements in food supply chain, environmental public policies, animal-vegetal substitution.</p> Thu, 03/23/2017 - 14:22 963362 963362 2017 8th International Conference on Economics, Business and Management (ICEBM 2017) <p>2017 8th International Conference on Economics, Business and Management (ICEBM 2017)<br /> Townsville, Australia,     November 17-19, 2017.</p> <p>Conference Website:</p> <p>The conference committee welcome participants around the world to attend, and share research experiences with each other.

The Conference provides an opportunity to analyse and discuss issues related to the functioning of the labour market as well as to develop research collaborations.</p> <p><em>The theme for this year conference is the analysis of the factors determining different educational choices and labour market outcomes across gender.</em> <em>Over the past decades there has been a large increase in female human capital investment and labour force participation. The ratio of male to female college graduates decreased continuously, and in recent years it was even reversed in many countries. </em></p> <p><em>Although there has been a rise in graduation rates of women in what used to be historically men-dominated fields such as math, science and engineering, there is still a considerable gender gap in academic outcomes and employment in these fields.</em> <em>What explains these gender disparities remains an open question. Some emphasize the role of biological gender differences in determining cognitive differences, while others put forward the social, psychological and environmental factors that might influence this gap. The empirical evidence is still limited since it is difficult to disentangle the impact of biological differences from environmental conditions and to evaluate the role of stereotypes and prejudices.</em></p> <h2>Keynote speaker</h2> <p>This year the AIEL keynote lecture will be delivered by:</p> <ul> <li><strong>Victor Lavy </strong>(Hebrew University of Jerusalem and University of Warwick)</li> </ul> <h2>Invited policy session</h2> <p>There will be a special invited plenary session on <em>Retirement and Reform of the Pension System</em>.
