EUROFRAME Conference 2020 postponed until further notice
Euroframe conference 2020 : Climate change: economic implications, tools and challenges for policy-makers in Europe
The 17th Conference will focus on the challenges posed by climate change. Public opinion has changed and European policy-makers, businesses and the financial sector have started to recognise the importance of climate change and biodiversity on the lives of people and the economy. Climate action must stand at the core of long-term growth and infrastructure planning. How do policy-makers ensure that the costs and benefits of climate action are shared equitably at a time when multilateral frameworks have come under threat?
We seek both empirical and theoretical policy-relevant papers. Areas of interest include but are not limited to:
• Economic impact of climate change at the macro and local level
• Evaluating macroeconomic benefits of biodiversity and ecosystem services
• Climate change and the EU’s green deal
• The role of climate change policy on innovation and infrastructure
• The role of central banks, banks and the insurance sector
• The fiscal implications of transition and physical risks.
Keynote Speaker: Professor Sir Partha Dasgupta, Faculty of Economics, University of Cambridge
