Advanced Policy Workshop

Date and Time: Wednesday 28 June, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Venue:  48 Akadimias Street, Kostis Palamas Building 

The implementation of Sustainable Development, in general, and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of Agenda 2030, in particular, presupposes a robust answer to the question: “How should one evaluate and manage natural resources over time and space in an uncertain world?” The answer to this question needs to consider different disciplines from the theoretical, applied and real world practitioner’s aspect. The Advanced Policy Workshop in “Sustainability and Resource Valuation” to be held on 28 June 2017 in the historical premises of the Kostis Palamas Building in Athens, brings together leading international experts, academics and practitioners from various scientific fields, who will provide theoretical and applied cutting-edge responses to the above question.

Sir Partha Dasgupta, Emeritus Professor of Economics, University of Cambridge, opens the workshop with a lecture on the theory of Reproductive Rights and Environmental Externalities. Then Anastasios Xepapadeas, Professor of Economics, Athens University of Economics and Business, continues with a lecture on the theory and modeling of Environmental and Resource-Use Networks. These two theoretical lectures will be followed by a lecture by Phoebe Koundouri, Professor of Economics, Athens University of Economics and Business, and Scientific Director of ICRE8, which combines theory and empirical work on the “Economic Value and Information under Uncertainty: The Driving Force towards Implementing Sustainable Development”. This will be followed by a lecture by Andreas Papandreou, Professor of Economics, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, on the Political Economy Perspectives of Climate Policy. Then Yannis Ioannidis,  Professor of Informatics, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, and President & General Director, ATHENA Research and Innovation Center, will speak about Information Technologies and the Implementation of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)”. The practitioner’s point of view will be provided by Maria Damanaki, Global Managing Director for Oceans, The Nature Conservancy, who will speak about “Using nature to fight climate change”. The workshop will conclude with a video lecture by Jeffrey D. Sachs, Quetelet Professor of Sustainable Development, Columbia University and Leader of the Global Sustainable Development Solutions Network, on “Sustainable Development in Times of Crisis: The Role of Education”.

The Workshop is under the auspices of SDSN-Greece and is organized by the Political Economy of Sustainable Development Laboratory (PESD) of the Department of Economics of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, in collaboration with the Athens University of Economics and Business (ReSEES Laboratory) and the International Center for Research on the Environment and the Economy (ICRE8).  PESD and ICRE8 are the hosting institutions of SDSN-Greece.
