Keynote speakers

Anne-Sophie Crépin, Beijer Institute

Anne-Sophie Crépin is member of the Strategic Advisory Committee at the Stockholm Resilience Centre and the deputy director of the Beijer Institute of Ecological Economics. Her research links scientific theories about the Anthropocene, regime shifts and economic dynamic, focuses on the interplay between economic incentives, ecosystem regime shifts, policy and human behaviour. Crépin holds a PhD in Economics from the Department of Economics at Stockholm University.

Vic Adamovicz, University of Alberta

Vic Adamowicz is a Distinguished University Professor in the Department of Resource Economics and Environmental Sociology, Faculty of Agricultural, Life & Environmental Sciences, University of Alberta. He obtained his BSc and MSc from the University of Alberta (1981, 1983) and his PhD from the University of Minnesota in 1988. His research has integrated the environment into economic analysis, focused on the valuation of environmental amenities and ecosystem services and the incorporation of environmental values into economic analysis – with applications to forestry, water quality, air quality, endangered species and agriculture. His research also involves the analysis of choice behavior with applications to food demand, recreation, and environmental quality.

Organizational arrangement

Participants will have an opportunity to discuss various issues related adaptation, mitigation and strategies toward an inclusive green development, including policy instruments, future scenarios, transition management, international cooperation and regime at this Annual Meeting.

Two prizes will be awarded at the end of the Conference: “Sustainability Prize” for an expert researcher and “Green Prize” for a young female researcher. Researchers who wish to candidate for these prizes must send their final paper before November 15.

While the COVID-19 pandemic prevents researchers to travel abroad, EEPSEA provides domestic travel sponsorship for participants from Vietnam and Thailand to their venue meetings in Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam) or in Khon Kaen (Thailand).
