Parallel Keynote Speeches

On day three of the USSEE 2009 Conference, June 1st, there will be two parallel keynote speeches.

One speech, The Global Carbon Market:  Good for Climate Change, Great for Development, will be given by Martina Bosi.  Ms. Bosi joined the World Bank Carbon Finance Unit in Washington in 2005. She is the fund manager for the World Bank Prototype Carbon Fund (the world’s first global carbon fund) and the World Bank Danish Carbon Fund. She is also actively engaged in the area of policy and methodology for energy efficiency carbon finance-related activities.

Another speech, Gender and ‘Scientific’ Culture in Ecological Economics will be given by Julie Nelson.  Julie Nelson is an Associate Professor of Economics at the University of Massachusetts Boston, USA, and a Senior Research Fellow at the Global Development and Environment Institute at Tufts University, USA. Nelson is best known for her work in feminist economics, in which she investigates gender-laden biases in the definition and methodology of economics, and the implications of these biases for the economics of caring labor.

The speeches will be followed by a question and answer session.  For more information visit the conference website.  The conference is being held in Washington DC, May 30 – June 3, 2009.  Registration is still open.
