Istanbul, Turkey: World Congress of Environmental and Resource Economists (WCERE 2014)

WCERE is the most remarkable forum for environment and resource economists around the world. During the Congress, there are many opportunities to network and learn from some of the brightest leaders in the field of environmental and resource economics.


The 5th WCERE will take place in Istanbul, Turkey, from June 28 to July 2, 2014. After Venice (1998), Monterey (2002), Kyoto (2006), and Montréal (2010), the profession will convene in this unique World Heritage city that straddles Europe and Asia. Over 1100 economists from more than 40 countries attended the last World Congress in Montreal - and an equal if not greater number is anticipated at Istanbul this year. Confirmed keynote speakers include Professors Robert H. Frank (Cornell), Eswaran Somanathan (Indian Statistical Institute), and Matthew Kahn (UCLA Institute of the Environment).

Hosted by Istanbul Technical University (ITU), one of Turkey's most distinguished universities, WCERE 2014 is jointly organized by the Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (AERE) and the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (EAERE), in cooperation with the East Asian Association of Environmental and Resource Economics (EAAERE).
