Organised by the European Commission, the European Development Days (EDD) bring the development community together each year to share ideas and experiences in ways that inspire new partnerships and innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges. The EDD is a participatory programme.
EDD 2021’s overarching title is “The Green Deal for a Sustainable Future”.
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
26th Annual Conference of the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists
The conference is organized by Technische Universität Berlin (TU Berlin) and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU Berlin). The conference is supported by the wider Berlin research community in environmental and resource economics, most notably by the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin), and Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change (MCC). The organization of the conference is also supported by the Berlin Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI).
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).
The 16th Conference on Sustainable Development of Energy, Water and Environment Systems (SDEWES) is dedicated to the advancement and dissemination of knowledge on methods, policies and technologies for increasing the sustainability of development by de-coupling growth from the use of natural resources and by a transition to a knowledge-based economy. All taking into account the economic, environmental and social pillars of sustainable development.

Forests cover approximately 30% of the Earth’s land area, host 80% of its biodiversity; support the livelihoods of around a quarter of the world’s population.
At the EU level, forests cover approximately 42% of the land area. In addition to providing economic and job opportunities to local communities, forests are an irreplaceable biodiversity reservoirs and carbon sinks; they prevent soil erosion; they provide clean water through filtration; they clean the air; they play a central role in risk reduction measures vis-à-vis natural disasters, such as floods, droughts, heatwaves, erosion or landslides; and they support leisure and recreation, essential for human health.
The world’s forests are in serious danger from deforestation and forest degradation, with a forest area of 1.3 million square kilometres lost between 1990 and 2016. Pressures on EU forest ecosystems due to climate change and unsustainable forest management are a reason for concern and are expected to increase in the future, due to increasing demand of timber coming from the bioenergy the bioeconomy sectors, in a context where illegal logging continues to be recorded in a number of Countries. Overall, protecting forests means protecting biodiversity and working for a climate neutral and climate resilient land.
In this context, DG Environment organises an international Conference on Forest for Biodiversity and Climate Change on 4th and 5th February 2020 in Brussels (Charlemagne building, European Commission).
The incoming European Commission’s policy agenda is arguably its most ambitious to date. During its five year term, the Commission will seek legally binding commitments to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050, unlock €1 trillion in green transition financing by 2030, and take a global leadership role in the governance of artificial intelligence, among other headline goals. It will also launch Horizon Europe, its largest ever research and innovation programme, with a clearly defined range of impact targets.
In February, the Science|Business Annual Network Conference will bring together over 300 stakeholders for two main purposes: first, to take stock of latest developments around the key pillars of the new agenda; and second, to explore their implications for the science, technology and innovation communities that will have a critical role to play in driving progress. By extension, it will address the challenge of developing the next generation(s) of researchers, innovators and entrepreneurs who will have a leading role to play in delivering a climate-neutral, sustainable Europe by 2050.

Adaptation Futures 2020 in India.
The Energy and Resources Institute will co-host the Adaptation Futures 2020 with the World Adaptation Science Programme (WASP) in Delhi from April 27-30, 2020. It is the sixth in the Adaptation Futures international conference series on global adaptation and the first to be held in Asia. Adaptation Futures is the flagship event of the World Adaptation Science Program, which is one of the four components of World Climate Programme (WCP) based on the World Meteorological Organisation Congress XVI Resolution 18. As a premier event in the global adaptation spectrum, Adaptation Futures is a unique platform to facilitate dialogues towards action oriented solutions from a diverse range of stakeholders that includes academia, practitioners, scientists and policy makers from across the world.
India due to its high reliance on climate sensitive sectors such as agriculture, water, and forestry for resources and livelihoods faces an urgent need for adapting to the risks posed by climate change. The country has been making significant efforts over the years to bring adaptation issues to the forefront in the evolving global climate regime. The Government of India has also formulated mechanisms to integrate adaptation action as part of the developmental process under the National and State Action Plans on Climate Change. India along with other developing nations, has been instrumental in putting forth a global goal of adaptation with an aim of enhancing adaptive capacity, strengthening resilience and reducing vulnerability under the Paris Climate Agreement. While adaptation requires local and national set of actions, there is a need for significant global cooperation in meeting the resource requirements of developing countries. In this context, Adaptation Futures 2020 will be an ideal opportunity to give visibility to the adaptation requirements of developing and generate significant dialogues around actionable solutions.
