About the Workshop
We are pleased to invite submissions for the 8th IZA Workshop on Environment, Health and Labor Markets.
Environmental and health policy decisions should aim to equalize the benefits and costs of improving environmental quality or health services. While the benefits generally accrue in form of increased health, worker productivity and human capital, quality of life, and amenity values, the costs of providing such services are largely borne through potential impacts on workers or firms. Successful policy development requires detailed and reliable information on the magnitude and determinants of these benefits and costs, even in the presence of market failures and externalities.
The aim of the 2020 workshop of IZA's Environment, Health, and Labor Markets program area is to bring together researchers analyzing the impact of environmental factors and health policies on labor market outcomes, human capital outcomes, industrial activity, production decisions and demographic outcomes.
The keynote lecture will be delivered by Joshua Graff Zivin (University of California, San Diego).
Researchers interested in participating should submit a full paper or extended abstract by March 8, 2020 using the Online Application Form. Notifications will be send until March 31, 2020.
