The Social Costs of Water Pollution Workshop

Wednesday, April 3, 2019 (All day) to Friday, April 5, 2019 (All day)
Event Type: 

Location: Cornell University

Description: The objective of the workshop is to coordinate and encourage research and policy discussion of Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs) for water quality, and to push forward our understanding of the benefits and costs of water quality improvements. This workshop is part of an ongoing effort to establish a strong interdisciplinary research and policy community to improve our understanding of how changes in water quality affect society with an ultimate goal of providing regional and temporal estimates of the social cost of water pollution. The call for papers can be found here: The Social Costs of Water Pollution – Call for Papers.

Progress on IAMs for water quality requires coordinated contributions from ecologists, hydrologists, economists, and related disciplines, and so we are happy to feature keynote talks from the following top experts in these areas:

  • Jeff Arnold, USDA Agricultural Research Service
  • Steve Carpenter, UW-Madison Center for Limnology and Department of Integrative Biology
  • Sheila Olmstead, University of Texas LBJ School of Public Affairs

We are looking forward to an exciting event. Please let us know if you have questions and please support our efforts to build this community by sharing this call with any colleagues with possible interest.
