The second U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI) Economics Training Workshop (hereafter “Workshop”) was held during September 25–27, 2018, in Washington, D.C., to identify, highlight, and better understand needs and opportunities for economic analysis to support DOI’s mission. Building on the first workshop in 2017, the second Workshop, jointly convened by the DOI Office of Policy Analysis and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Science and Decisions Center, provided an opportunity for DOI economists to share expertise and experiences and to build collaboration and communication channels across DOI. In addition, the second Workshop provided training sessions on a variety of relevant economic and modeling topics. More than 40 DOI economists gathered at the Workshop to share their work, discuss shared challenges, and identify approaches to advance the use and contribution of economics at the DOI.
