Presentation of the special sessions

Special session “Trade and Natural Disasters”

Climate change in the form of long run increases in temperature and changes in precipitation patterns can affect productivity in all sectors, and in particular agriculture. Trade patterns will hence be affected following the economic impact of climate change on production. In addition, more frequent extreme events such as floods, storms and hurricanes have a direct short-term impact. Natural disasters such as these could have more long-term persistent effects as well. All in all, these events could affect not only the local economy but also trade patterns and globalization. The aim of this session is to examine the consequences of climate change and the increase in natural disasters on the local economy as well as on trade and globalization.

Special session "Environmental Regulation"

Nowadays environmental regulation, natural resources exploitation and international development are strongly interconnected. This session welcomes both theoretical and empirical papers that lie at the crossroad of resources and environmental economics and international economics. Specifically, submissions should focus on the interactions between environmental regulation and natural resources exploitation and trade, or on the link between environmental regulation and the distribution of firms, production factors and income.

Special session "Recycling and resource economics: impacts, implementation, and limits"

While energy transition will require an increasing demand for mineral resources, recycling appears as a promising way to reduce the anthropic pressure on natural resources. The economic feasibility of recycling depends on numerous factors: availability of primary resources, technical progress and innovation, collection networks. This special session will address both empirical and theoretical aspects of recycling, its potential impacts, implementation, and limits.
