“I have been working for the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists since its foundation in 1989.  I  organized  its  first  Annual  Conference  in  Venice  in  1991  and  the  first  World  Congress  of Environmental  and Resource Economists again in Venice in  1998. I have been a  member of the EAERE  Board  from  2002 to  2003 and  I organized two Summer Schools in 2000 and in 2002. I know EAERE and many of its  members very well and I realize the  potential  of  the  Association  in  promoting  environmental  and  resource  economics  as  a  major  research  field  in economics, certainly increasingly important in all economic debates.
Being the  editor of the Review of  Environmental Economics and Policy (REEP), I am also a  member of the Board of AERE,  the US-based Association of Environmental and Resource Economists.  This  membership is one of  the  reasons why I accepted to be a  candidate  for President of EAERE: I believe that  EAERE can further  strengthen its impact by developing joint initiatives with AERE, thus  increasing its visibility among US universities, institutions and journals. As a  President  of  EAERE  I  would  be  able  to  promote  new  cooperation,  events  and  publications  that  will  help  EAERE members to enhance their academic reputation and their international network.
I have been  the  President of  the  University of Venice  for  five  years.  Now I  can  contribute  to EAERE my  managerial experience in addition to my knowledge of the academic world and my involvement in many research projects. This will help both to effectively manage the EAERE budget and to raise funds to give young European talents, as well as colleagues from developing countries, the possibility to attend our meetings and schools. I am also in the board of several international organizations and academic institutions. This gives me the chance to promote EAERE as the focal point of research on climate, the environment and natural  resources, thus increasing its relevance in the EU policy process. What all of us do cannot be confined to universities and research centers: we must enhance our impact on policy  processes in Europe.
As a President, I would work to strengthen EAERE, its  job market, the training opportunities that it provides, and its visibility in  the busines s world. I would also  work to  extend  collaboration also  to  Asian, Latin  America n and  African Associations, to create a wider community of researchers whose interactions can further improve our understanding of crucial environmental and  natural resource is sues. Finally, I would work to improve all existing initiatives, starting from the Annual conference and the Summer School, and to develop new  ones to give EAERE members better tools to share knowledge and to raise funds for their  research.”
