Workshop economic analysis of environmental food policies, Manufacture des tabacs, Toulouse, November 16–17, 2017, room MS 003.

After fossil fuels, agricultural production and fisheries are the two main industries that impact  the environment the most. They are significant contributors in terms of climate change but also in terms of eutrophication, land use, water use and toxicity. The environmental impact of food is in large part determined by household diet and consumption habits. Population and economic growth should lead to an even higher environmental impact on the future if patterns of production and consumption are not changed.The objective of the workshop is to discuss recent   theoretical and empirical contributions in economics on the analyses of environmentally-friendly public policies at the consumption, distribution,    processing and farm level.
