About the Workshop

The Northeastern Agricultural and Resource Economics Association (NAREA) is hosting the 2015 Workshop on Water Quality Economics.  The 2015 workshop will be held at the Viking Hotel in Newport, Rhode Island immediately prior the NAREA Annual Meeting.  The workshop will take place on June 27-28, before the NAREA Annual Meeting on June 28-30.  Immediately following the Workshop, during the afternoon on Sunday June 28, we will organize a boat tour of Narragansett Bay to learn about water quality issues in the Bay, details to be released later.  The Workshop may be attended either alone or in combination with the NAREA Annual Meeting.

The workshop will include addresses from recognized experts in the field, selected paper presentations chosen on the basis of submitted abstracts, and in-depth working sessions. A special issue of the Agricultural and Resource Economics Review (ARER) will be published in August 2016 from workshop papers accepted after an expedited version of the journal's peer-review process.

The Workshop will also provide $800 to the presenting author (up to a maximum of 14) upon successful completion of their submission of their paper to ARER.

The Workshop is supported by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) and the USDA-supported Center for Behavioral and Experimental Agri-Environmental Research (CBEAR).

The workshop registration fee is $50.
