This year’s conference features many opportunities to interact and learn, including: selected paper sessions, plenary talks, discussion symposia, and workshop sessions.

A two-day post conference workshop on “The Impacts of Climate Change on Land Conservation and Restoration: Economic Policy Advances in Adaptation and Mitigation” led by Sahan Dissanayake (Colby College), will be held after the Annual Meeting from noon on Tuesday, June 13 until the afternoon of Wednesday, June 14.

The Annual Meeting will begin with an informal opening reception at the Key Bridge Marriott on Sunday evening in the Marriott’s top-floor Capital View Ballroom featuring spectacular views of Washington, DC; the academic program will follow on Monday and Tuesday.

We encourage participation from academic, public, and private sector agricultural, environmental, and resource economists; and welcome professionals, faculty, and graduate students.
