    President's Profile

At the Society's Annual General Meeting held during the 57th Annual Conference in Port Macquarie, 4-7 February 2014, Alan Randall, Professor of Economics at the University of Sydney, became president of the Society.  Alan’s research interests include environmental risk; biodiversity, habitat, and environmental sustainability; environmental regulation, monitoring, and enforcement; and the benefits and costs of environmental projects and programs.  He was Head of the department of Agricultural and Resource Economics at the University of Sydney 2011-2013, and Chair of the department of Agricultural, Environmental, and Development Economics at Ohio State University 1998-2010.

As president-elect of the Society, Alan suggested "Global, Local, Private, Public: Rethinking the Categories, Bridging the Gaps" for the theme of the 2014 Conference.  Dr Nicholas Gruen provided a stimulating perspective on this theme at the Official Opening and Dr Simon Dietz lucidly addressed the economics of catastrophic climate risk in the Opening Plenary Session at the Conference.
