Sébastien Treyer takes part in the session: "Foreign exchange policy, environment and climate change" moderated by Laurence Tubiana, during this international conference organised by the Banque de France and the FERDI (Foundation for Studies and Research on International Development), in association with AFD (French Development agency).
The conference objective is to identify the best exchange rate policies for low-income countries' development strategies, in particular regarding to existing or projected monetary unions. The diversity of the speakers, from Africa and beyond, academics or practitioners will offer a wide range of experience. The conference will highlight stakes of foreign exchange policy and sustainable development in low-income countries :
- economic growth in high-population-growth countries;
- income distribution, in particular, poverty trends;
- climate change which justifies moderation and adaptation efforts and, more generally, the conservation of the environment.
