A pan-institute Series of Webinars in Environmental and Energy Economics and Policy Environmental, energy, and ecological problems have grown faster than their solutions. Economists have an important role to play to address these issues by using the latest science, rigorous methods and innovative policy solutions.The SWEEEP webinar series aims to convene the academic community to […]

Accounting for air pollution impacts reduces climate mitigation costs without increasing inequality and increases global and regional welfare. A comprehensive integrated assessment modelling framework capturing the most critical interactions between air pollution, climate mitigation and the economy, in the study led by RFF-CMCC European Institute on Economics and the Environment (EIEE) just published in The Lancet […]

Net zero-emission pathways for reducing the risks for the environment and the economy of climate change An analysis led by RFF-CMCC European Institute on Economics and the Environment (EIEE) and just published on Nature Climate Change has explored the physical and macroeconomic impacts associated with mitigation pathways with different levels of temperature overshoot. Mitigation pathways […]

The first Climate Neutrality Forum (CNF) took place in 2021 bringing together over 1,000 academics and climate policy experts in a multi-hub hybrid in-person and virtual meeting held in Berlin, Oxford, and Milan, on 8-9 September 2021, followed by six weekly webinars in the lead up to 26th Conference of Parties meeting of the UN […]

n an article for Science’s Policy Forum, experts from a variety of fields consider how the social sciences can inform the understanding, application, and implications of solar geoengineering.  Twenty-one scholars from across the scientific spectrum outline the need to include the social sciences in solar geoengineering research in a new article for Science’s Policy Forum. Solar geoengineering is […]

Economic losses in Europe are projected to increase by almost a factor of five by 2060 compared to the historical damages experienced and will affect more the areas where heatwave-induced productivity damages are already pronounced, with a clear north-south gradient in economic losses. A study just published on Nature Communications and realized with the contribution […]

A comparison of observed global energy technology costs, with forecasts generated by models and forecasts predicted by human experts, showed that both forecasting methods underestimated cost reductions. This suggests that decisions based on forecasts may be overestimating the cost of climate mitigation and points to the need to further improve forecasting methods. A team of […]
