Jun 23 – Jun 25 all-day
24th Annual Conference on Global Economic Analysis “Global Food System: Opportunities and Challenges" @ Colorado State University. Lory Student Center 1101

The goal of the conference is to promote the exchange of ideas among economists conducting quantitative analysis of global economic issues. Particular emphasis will be placed on applied general equilibrium methods, data, and application. Related theoretical and applied work is also welcome.

A global network of individuals and institutions conducting economy-wide analysis of trade, resource, and environmental policy issues has emerged. Thousands of these researchers now use a common data base, supplied by the Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP). The project is coordinated by the Center for Global Trade Analysis at Purdue University with the support of a consortium of national and international agencies. The GTAP Data Base is a key input into most of the contemporary applied general equilibrium (AGE) analysis of global economic issues. Participants are given the opportunity to present their work, interact with other professionals in the field, and learn about the most recent developments in global economic analysis.

The overall theme of the conference is “Global Food System: Opportunities and Challenges” with subthemes on:

  • Agricultural innovation and resource constraints
  • International trade and supply chain linkages
  • Inclusive economic growth
    • Climate change and environmental sustainability
    • Food-energy linkages
  • Food and agricultural policies
  • Policy and regulatory harmonization

Climate Neutrality Forum @ Berlin, Milan and Oxford
Sep 8 – Sep 10 all-day
Climate Neutrality Forum @ Berlin, Milan and Oxford

Bringing together leading researchers, policymakers and practitioners working on achieving climate neutrality, the meeting will take place simultaneously at three hubs – Berlin, Milan and Oxford – linked together to create a blended event that is both in-person and virtual in nature.

Delegates will be drawn from academic, policy, civil society and business communities. The objective is to identify a suite of high-impact policy recommendations. These will be presented ahead of the COP26 meeting with the aim of raising ambition.

With in-person participation at the three hub locations and online, this multi-hub blended meeting is designed to showcase how international events can be conducted in a way that is consistent with a transition to a zero-emission future. We recognise the value of in-person meetings to enable the serendipity that comes from bringing people together from a range of viewpoints. Therefore, we will seek to enhance this with online networking between participants in the three locations.

This event will be co-hosted by the Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change (Berlin), the RFF-CMCC European Institute on Economics and the Environment (Milan) and Oxford Net Zero at the University of Oxford (Oxford).
