Edward P. Bass Distinguished Lecture - Connecting Environment and Economy

Eli Fenichel
November 15, 2023

Dear YIBS community,

Please join us in attending the Edward P. Bass Distinguished Lecture: Connecting Environment and Economy. 

Speaker: Eli Fenichel
Date: Wednesday, November 15th from 5:00 - 6:00 PM
Location: O.C. Marsh Lecture Hall, Yale Science Building (260 Whitney Ave) 

Yale professor Eli Fenichel discusses where, why, and how the environment is emerging as a primary driver of economic policy decisions both domestically and internationally. New initiatives like the U.S. Natural Capital Accounts and Environmental Economic Statistics program and novel approaches to benefit-cost analysis represent governmental efforts to formally link the environment and ecosystems with the economy. Fenichel places these in a global context by connecting them to related international efforts, such as the G7 and Global Biodiversity Framework.

*Registration not required
This event is co-sponsored by the Yale Institute for Biospheric Studies and the Yale Peabody Museum.
