Presidential Address

IAERE activities continue aiming at expanding our reference community and interacting at the institutional level in order to further consolidate the Association in Italy and in Europe. The call for papers for the 2017 Annual Conference is now open, the first School is about to start, IAERE is present at the SIE conference in 2017 with a session.
Our commitment is to continue and extend the teaching and research activities by engaging a larger number of academic, public and private institutions, and by interacting with the Italian scientific associations and associations of environmental economics and natural resources of other European countries. The IAERE conference in February 2017 will be an important opportunity to present new activities and 2017-18 events.
