Quando mezzo grado fa la differenza

Biennale di Democrazia Quando mezzo grado fa la differenza 29 Marzo – 19:00Auditorium Vivaldi,  Piazza Carlo Alberto 5 A – Torino   Elena Verdolini introduce Gabriele Beccaria L’Accordo di Parigi, sottoscritto da 194 Paesi, è un patto globale per ridurre le emissioni di gas serra e contenere l’au- mento della temperatura media globale al di sotto di 2 °C rispetto ai livelli pre-industriali. Ma di quanto si potrebbero ridurre i rischi e gli effetti del cambiamen- to climatico se l’aumento di temperatura fosse limitato a 1,5 °C? Quali le possibili strade per raggiungere questo obiettivo?  

Sostenere la decarbonizzazione: il ruolo della finanza

Conferenza: "Sostenere la decarbonizzazione Il ruolo della finanza" - a cura di AMUNDI I cambiamenti climatici sono sempre di più una realtà che interessa direttamente il nostro sistema economico-finanziario e la sua sicurezza. Come sostenere la decarbonizzazione? Come investire per accellerare la transizione verso business low-carbon, climate-resilient, solidi e prosperi? Come sostenere la finanza climatica attraverso l’Accordo di Parigi? Una sfida complessa, con tanti strumenti, che vede i fondi diventare attori principali in questo scenario, capaci di indirizzare il mondo del business e quello della politica nella giusta direzione. Ed allo stesso tempo richiede azioni importanti a livello urbano e nazionale, dalla carbon tax ai green bond.…

CMCC/EIEE Webinar – Warming and welfare: global micro-evidence – October 18, 2018 – h.12.30 pm

Presenter: Marshall Burke – Assistant Professor Dept. of Earth System Science Center Fellow – Center on Food Security and the Environment – Stanford University Introduced by: Massimo Tavoni – Polytechnic University of Milan – RFF-CMCC European Institute on Economics and the Environment (EIEE) At the European Institute on Economics and the Environment (EIEE), Marshall Burke is presenting “Warming and welfare: global micro-evidence (with Sol Hsiang)”. Abstract We construct the first global estimates for the welfare impact of warming under unmitigated climate change using household-level micro-data. By combining household surveys from around the world, we construct a global panel of household…

New Research Forecasts High Emitting Countries to Suffer Economic Damages from Climate Change

Novel international study indicates actual cost of global warming will be highest for the three top emitting countries (China, India and US), and globally higher and more unequal than normally assumed. Among the authors, scientists from the newly established EIEE (European Institute on Economics and the Environment), the partnership between Resources for the Future (RFF), the energy and environmental economics think tank based in Washington DC, and the CMCC Foundation – Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change. The paper is published in the latest issue of Nature Climate Change. For the first time, researchers have developed a data set quantifying what…

Several job openings in integrated assessment modeling and the low carbon economy (Milan, Italy)

The RFF-CMCC European Institute on Economics and the Environment (EIEE), a research institute co-founded in 2018 by Resources for the Future and the CMCC Foundation – Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change, encourages to submit applications for several junior and senior researcher positions. The successful candidates will work on either of these two broad topics: Integrated Assessment Modeling: maintaining and developing the WITCH IAM, focusing on either energy systems, macro-economic modeling, distributional impacts, technological change, uncertainty and decision making. The low carbon economy: quantitative and/or qualitative analyses of the low carbon transformation, including, but not limited to, green innovation, competitiveness, employment, human…

Research insights and policy solutions: an innovative international partnership between RFF and CMCC

A new transatlantic research institute on climate change and natural resource economics is born from the partnership between Resources for the Future (RFF), the energy and environmental economics think tank based in Washington DC, and the  CMCC Foundation – Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change. The RFF-CMCC European Institute on Economics and the Environment announced at the World Congress of Environmental and Resource Economics in Goteborg, leverages the research effort of the two leading centers to improve environmental, energy, and natural resource decisions through impartial economic research and policy engagement. The new Institute develops advanced and integrated modeling tools to address environmental and climate-related…
