Workshop Description: The Heartland Environmental and Resource Economics Workshop will be held for the tenth year at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on Saturday September 28 to Sunday September 29 2019 in the Illini Union on the University of Illinois campus. Topics for contributed paper sessions were chosen based on the submissions we receive. The workshop (Saturday morning through Sunday afternoon) will feature:

  • A luncheon with keynote speaker on “Interdependence of agricultural outcomes and environmental conditions”, Wolfram Schlenker (Columbia University)
  • A luncheon with panel discussion on “New Directions for Ag-Environmental Research” featuring Katrina Jessoe (UC Davis), Frank Lupi (Michigan State), and  Ariel Ortiz-Bobea (Cornell)
  • Multiple sessions of contributed 20-minute paper presentations
  • Two sets of 10-minute short research presentations
  • Research posters displayed during a reception and breaks
  • Numerous breaks to share ideas and develop new collaborations

The goals of HERE@Illinois are, as always, to stimulate research and build community in environmental economics with partial focus on the Midwest. The workshop will bring people together to exchange ideas and foster new collaborations.  Through selected paper sessions, it will identify pressing public policy issues and emerging research themes on environmental and resource economics. Finally, it will provide networking and development opportunities for graduate students and early career faculty in environmental and resource economics.
