The second part of the workshop will consist of two papers. The first one will be given by Judit Vall, from the University of Barcelona and member of the IEB (Barcelona Institute of Economics), who will address the evaluation of the Catalan tax on sugar-sweetened beverages.

Afterwards, Ángeles Pla Vall, from the Universitat de València, will address the possibilities and limitations of taxation on sugary drinks.
