Hosted by the University of Ottawa, the Environmental Taxation Conference is an annual gathering of leading international experts in law, economics, tax and accounting, political sciences, environmental policy and more who will present the latest research findings about how economic instruments can be used to advance sustainable development. The theme of this year's conference is Translating Theory to Practice.

Topics to be covered include the following:

  • How have different jurisdictions succeeded in building public and political support for environmental taxes and charges?
  • What has been the experience to date using economic instruments to encourage sustainable transportation, promote renewable energy, reduce waste, rationalize mineral and water use and implement climate change policy?
  • Which instruments have worked under what circumstances? Which have proved unsuccessful?
