Canadian Resource and Environmental Economics Conference
September 29, 2017 - October 01, 2017
The 27th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Resource and Environmental Economists (CREE) Working Group was held September 29 - October 1 at the Ivey Business School in London, Ontario.
The objective of CREE is to provide a forum for researchers and policy analysts in resource and environmental economics to share ideas, questions and research findings. This is achieved primarily by way of the annual conference. CREE also organizes a small number of sessions at the annual Canadian Economics Association meetings, usually held in June. The annual CREE conference is deliberately kept small, usually with about 20 papers selected for presentation and discussion, and about 60 delegates in attendance. This setting fosters a high level interaction among participants and results in valuable feedback for presenters. It also provides a setting for emerging scholars to meet and interact with academics and policy analysts from across the country and, indeed, from around the world.
