2006 Berlin Conference on the Human Dimensions of Global Environmental Change
Ressource Policies: Effectiveness, Efficiency, and Equity
The sustainable use of natural resources has been a challenge for environmental policies from their very beginning. Without an appropriate institutional setting, scarce resources such as water, materials, energy sources, land, etc. are overused, following the infamous logic of the tragedy of the commons. Related to this are issues of effective resource policies, efficient resource consumption, and equity on a global scale. The Berlin Conference Steering Committee and the Environmental Policy and Global Change section of the German Political Science Association and its partners invite papers for the 2006 Berlin Conference on the Human Dimensions of Global Environmental Change, to be held in Berlin on 17-18 November 2006.
