During Ef D's seventh annual meeting, spring began to warm the Western Cape of South Africa creating a fertile environment for over 70 delegates to present fresh research findings and exchange knowledge and techniques.
This year the Ef D annual meeting will be held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from: October 27-30, 2017.
Ef D would also like to attract key stakeholders for exchange of research ideas. This year’s EAERE conference served as platform to showcase Ef D’s research efforts.
Including special sessions dedicated to specific initiatives such as the collaborative program from Duke University, The Sustainable Energy Transition Initiative (SETI).

This problem has especially plagued Latin American commodity exporters.Research Nucleus in Environmental and Natural Resource Economics at the University of Concepción is organizing the Fifth Workshop on Environmental and Natural Resource Economics, 5th and 6th October 2017, and the Fourth Short course to policy makers on “Compliance and Enforcement of Environmental Policy and Management of Natural Resources”, 4th October 2017.It will take place at Termas de Catillo, Maule Region in Chile.The key innovation that has allowed Chile to achieve countercyclical fiscal policy in general, and to run surpluses in booms in particular, is not just a structural budget rule in itself, but a regime that entrusts to independent expert panels responsibility for estimating long-run trends in copper prices and GDP.Acknowledgments Machine-readable bibliographic record - MARC, RIS, Bib Te X Document Object Identifier (DOI): 10.3386/w16945 Published: Jeffrey Frankel, 2011.The Ef D initiative is committed to produce high quality research and active international research interaction.This is achieved by creating an environment where discussions can take place openly, where research results can be constructively criticized, and where feedback is generated.7) Chile has avoided the problem of overly optimistic official forecasts.The conclusion: official forecasts tend to be overly optimistic, if not insulated from politics, and the problem can be worse when the government is formally subject to budget rules.Chile's fiscal institutions hold useful lessons everywhere, but especially in other commodity exporting countries.This paper finds statistical support for a series of hypotheses regarding forecasts by official agencies that have responsibility for formulating the budget.
