Input-Output-Workshop special 2019


The programm of the IO Workshop 2019 can be downloaded here.


The concept of Sustainable Development, which was introduced in the well-known “Brundtland Report” (1987), now influences decisions by companies, households, and public institutions. Sustainable Development requires the simultaneous fulfilment of goals in at least three dimensions (including the environmental, economic, and social dimensions) at the global, national, and regional level. In the context of Sustainable Development, input-output analysis can for example be used for applications like:

• Estimation of “environmental footprints”
• Analysis of emissions embodied in trade
• Analysis of economic impacts of climate change
• Investigation in employment effects of investment projects in the fields of renewable energy and energy efficiency
• Studies related to the effects of environmental policy on the distribution of income

At this workshop we wish to discuss these and other applications of input-output analysis to questions related to Sustainable Development.
