Call for Papers | Special session(s) on Climate Change | North American Meetings of RSAI, Vancouver, November 8-11, 2017

Wednesday, 10 May 2017 15:46

Growing concerns about climate change and the frequency/intensity of its associated extreme events have led to a burgeoning literature on the measurement of their economic impacts. Yet, the large majority of such studies ignores or treats poorly the presence of interregional dependence, intersectoral linkages and spatial heterogeneity Regional Scientists are used to deal with.

As such, the Climate Change Impact sessions aim at bringing together NARSC participants interested in measurements of the economic impact of climate change from a Regional Science perspective. Both theoretical and applied papers will be presented in these special sessions.

Examples of topics of interest include:

- Regional mitigation and/or adaptation

- Climate change impacts on crop yields or farmland values

- Climate change impacts on agricultural trade

- Food-water nexus at the regional level

- Regional actions in the absence of federal government intervention

- The environment as a location factor

- Climate change and regional cooperation
