Social Cost of Water Pollution
I am a co-founder and co-organizer of the Workshop on Integrated Assessment Models and the Social Costs of Water Pollution. This is a joint effort with Cathy Kling (Cornell) and Dan Phaneuf (Wisconsin).
The objective of the workshop is to coordinate and encourage research and policy discussion of Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs) for water quality, and to push forward our understanding of the benefits and costs of water quality improvements. This workshop is part of an ongoing effort to establish a strong interdisciplinary research and policy community to improve our understanding of how changes in water quality affect society with an ultimate goal of providing regional and temporal estimates of the social cost of water pollution.
