MILWAUKEE (PRWEB) December 20, 2021

Land use and land use changes have foundational impacts on our society as land directly affects our living space, environmental quality, and essential supplies of water, food, fiber, and energy. Market outcomes of land uses have often meant excessive land exploitation of land and unbalanced land allocation among different uses.

In the AAEA session taking place at 2022 ASSA, "Land Use and Emerging Policy Challenges," the presenters investigate some emerging challenges in policy design aimed at addressing such suboptimality, specifically, what policy options are available, how to assess the intended and unintended consequences of these options.
