Where to find postdoc positions in my field

I subscribed to some active job-seeking sites but they keep sending me “deviated” job offers. Perhaps my field – environmental economics – is so easy to be confused with environmental science, law, ionospheric studies  or so? Or I failed to describe my targeted jobs specifically enough when registered. Fine, I will save some good sites here, for me to review once in a while and seek for my luck.

The term “No-regrets”

I first heard of this term from my supervisor when he talked about climate change mitigation and adaptation measures. In fact, it has been largely used in climate change work such as in IPCC or CSIRO reports. However, I personally think that it is an infeasible term (if you know what I mean, that’s we can theoretically define it, but we will never find it in reality -So what’s the point of using the term in practical decision-making?). I found that WWF did not use the term elsewhere, and now I know why :D. Interesting. We will come back to this topic soon.
