An event co organized by the Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations (IDDRI) and The Paris School of Economics (PSE)

from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm at Paris (Maison de la Chimie)

The reduction of historically high inequalities and the protection of the environment are among the most important policy challenges in the decades to come. Policymakers are then faced with a key question: how to stop environmental degradation without undermining social cohesion, and vice versa? A growing amount of research has analysed the various interactions between environmental and social inequalies. However, it is questionable whether such knowledge is translated into effective policies.

The international conference "Environmental inequalities: from research to policy-making", organised by the Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations (IDDRI-Sciences Po) and the Paris School of Economics (PSE), will bring together researchers, policy makers, activists and policy-makers from different regions of the world in order to collect analyses, testimonies and new research inputs so as to identify which public policy evolutions would be required in order to better address inequalities at the frontier of environmental and social challenges.

Registration mandatory

Interventions and disccusions will be held in both French and English without interpretation
