SANDEE Founder Sir Partha Dasgupta receives the European Lifetime Achievement in Environmental Economics Award

EAERE announces the awards presented at the 5th World Congress of Environmental and Resource Economists:

European Lifetime Achievement Award in Environmental Economics
Prof. Sir. Partha Dasgupta
In recognition of his lifelong contribution to the development of environmental and resource economics - in particular his work on the theory regarding the use of natural resources, and its application to a wide range of environmental problems - and for having provided many fundamental and crucial contributions to economic theory and methodology. Sir Partha Dasgupta has also been a consistent supporter of the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists, and was the Association's President for 2010-11.

Outstanding Publication in the Journal Environmental and Resource Economics
Antony MILLNER, Simon DIETZ and Geoffrey HEAL "Scientific Ambiguity and Climate Policy".
This is a paper which considers the challenge of decision making where uncertainty is of a quality somewhat incompatible with standard expected utility theory. Their consideration of the role of ambiguity aversion provides an important and we expect long-lasting contribution to the literature.

In addition,six papers published in ERE in 2013 were commended for their excellence.
