IAERE10 Tour | Round table: Peace, resources and the environment
Salone Apollo, Rectorship of the University of Brescia | Piazza del Mercato, 15, Brescia (Italy)
On the occasion of the IAERE10 Tour organized to celebrate ten years since the foundation of the Italian Association of Environmental and Resource Economists, the Eni Enrico Mattei Foundation together with the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (EAERE) and the Institute of Economic and Employment Studies (ISEO) are pleased to support this event set up by Sergio Vergalli and Marta Castellini.
The round table will analyze the complex relationship between peace, resources and the environment through an economic perspective. The availability of resources and climatic dynamics are key triggering factors for conflicts while at the same time they can enable periods of geopolitical stability and economic prosperity. Understanding how these factors influence each other by supporting or threatening peace is essential to conceive an ethical and effective development model.
