Seminar in Environmental and Natural Resource Economics

Seminar in Environmental and Natural Resource Economics

The Yale Environmental Economics Seminar is a seminar series organized by the Yale Center for Business and the Environment, a joint center of the School of the Environment and the School of Management.  It is a forum where invited speakers, faculty, and students present either finished research or research-in-progress.  The seminar series not only provides valuable feedback to presenters, but also serves to bring together the environmental economics community at Yale.
