New Call for Papers on the Economics of Natural Disasters

The conference is planning to have one or two sessions on the economics of natural disasters. If you are interested in presenting a paper on relevant issues, either theoretic, empirical, or country specific, please send me a draft or an extended abstract (500+ words), preferably by June 24.

We just received a small grant to cover PART of the costs of traveling, accommodation, and registration fee of some of the presenters in these sessions. If you are interested, please specify the amount of subsidy you will want when submitting the paper. The amount of subsidy, if any, will depend on the number and amounts of requests.

This is the second conference of the association. Please click here for information about the first conference, held at Hitotsubashi University, Tokyo, Japan on July 30-31, 2005.
