European Summer School
in Resource and Environmental Economics
Approaches for Environmental Policy Evaluation
June - 6 July 2019
The 2019 EAERE-FEEM Summer School will take
place from June 30th to July 6th at the VIU
campus on the Island of San Servolo, in Venice, located just in
front of St. Mark's Square. It is organized by the European Association
of Environmental Economists (EAERE) and Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei
(FEEM), in collaboration with Venice International University (VIU).
The School topic is the Econometric
Approaches for Environmental Policy Evaluation.
policy has lately shifted more and more from traditional
command-and-control regulation to market-based regulation (taxes and
permits) that economists often advocate. The latest example is the
European Trading System (ETS), which instituted a cap-and-trade program
for CO2 emissions that is similar to the SO2 trading program that was
previously established in the United States. A timely question is how
well these modern tools work and costly they are. Are standards set
correctly where marginal benefits equal marginal cost? Do benefits
capitalizes into housing prices? Is there market power or are there
significant transaction costs that keep the permit markets to function
Policy makers are repeatedly asking for
empirical evidence when they revise and implement regulations. The 2019
Summer School is designed to introduce students to the latest
econometric techniques to empirically estimate the effect of
environmental policy on health outcomes, industry structure, wages,
using micro-level data sets.
