Welcome

The Northeastern Agricultural and Resource Economics Association (NAREA) will hold its 2022 Annual Meeting from Sunday, June 12, 2022 through Tuesday, June 14, 2022, with a post-conference workshop to be held June 14-15, 2022. Meeting events will take place at the Hilton Mystic, CT, starting with a welcome reception on Sunday evening. We are committed to hosting a diverse and inclusive conference and we encourage participation from academic, public, and private sector economists interested in agricultural, environmental, or resource issues.  We especially welcome professionals, faculty, and graduate students from communities that are under-represented in the economics profession.

This year’s conference will feature selected and organized paper sessions, a poster session, and a special symposium/panel discussion on social justice issues in agriculture and environmental economics sponsored by the USDA.  The conference boasts two keynote addresses, including an address by Parke Wilde, a leading expert on U.S. food and nutrition policy. The second, Rising Star, keynote address will be given by Lala Ma, who will speak on environmental justice.

 
Please see the Call for Papers for more information on submitting papers, posters, and organized sessions.
 
A post-conference workshop, entitled "Ecosystem Services Foundations for Resilient Communities: Agriculture, Land Use, Coasts and Energy for Human Well-Being", will be held on June 14-15, 2022. This workshop is coordinated by Stephen Swallow, Charles Towe, and Sandro Steinbach from the University of Connecticut.

Note: the previously announced workshop on Issues of Land Succession, Social Equity, and Environmental Justice Affecting Agriculture has been postponed to 2023.
