Herman Daly Award
This award is given in honor of Herman Daly, one of the visionaries who founded the field of ecological economics. The award is designed to recognize individuals who have connected ecological economic thinking to practical applications and implementation of solutions that are sustainable in scale, equitable in distribution and efficient in allocation. An ad-hoc Awards committee, composed of USSEE Board members, convenes prior to the biennial conference, no later than February of the conference year. The committee actively seeks nominations for the award, researches the candidates, and makes a recommendation to the USSEE board as a whole. The board then votes on the award. The award is given in conjunction with the US Society for Ecological Economics biennial conference.
