This week the annual meeting of the Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (AERE) will be held at The Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada. The theme of the meeting, which will run from June 6-8, 2013, is “Mixing Oil and Water: The Nexus between Energy and Water Resources”. AEDE will have a strong presence at the gathering with a number of faculty and students participating, including the following:

AERE is the international professional association for economists working on the environment and natural resources. The organization was founded in 1979 as a means for exchanging ideas, stimulating research, and promoting graduate training in environmental and resource economics. AERE currently has over 900 members from more than 30 nations. The members represent academic institutions, the public sector, and private industry. The organization publishes two journals: the Journal of Environmental Economics and Management (JEEM) and the Review of Environmental Economics and Policy (REEP).

AEDE has a strong reputation in the field of environmental and resource economics.  In 2010, using a regression-based calculation, the National Research Council ranked the AEDE PhD program as the number one PhD program in the U.S. in agricultural and resource economics (Ohio State tied with the University of California-Berkeley). Additionally, in 2012 the journal Ecological Economics ranked Ohio State as the eighth most influential institution in the world working the field of environmental and ecological economics.
