Lagos, Nigeria: the city from the air

Call for papers: LSE Environment Week 2023

Past Event From to Sustainable Growth

LSE Environment Week: 11-15 September, 2023

The Economics of Environment and Energy Programme (EEE), International Growth Centre (IGC), and Programme on Innovation and Diffusion (POID) within the LSE Economics Department is convening the second Environment Week at LSE on 11-15 September 2023. Working with partners at the School and across the world we want to use Environment Week to encourage economists from all fields of economics to work on environmental issues and to connect this work to policy change.

The urgency of addressing climate change, pollution, and environmental degradation continues to rise, highlighting the need for research in this area. Achieving a more sustainable balance between human activity and the natural environment, while maintaining economic growth, remains a significant challenge. Addressing it will require substantial innovation in multiple directions, including finding ways to make economic growth cleaner, control environmental externalities, and protect human populations from environmental change.

To identify and explore these innovations, we welcome submissions from various fields of economics, including: development, macroeconomics, industrial organisation, public, finance, labour, trade, urban, theory, behavioural, and political economy, as well as environmental, energy, and climate.
