Climate Change Economics

JVI is gradually resuming classroom delivery. This course is scheduled to take place at JVI, but may have to be delivered virtually in case safe travel to and in-person training in Vienna will not be possible. The decision to offer virtual instead of onsite training, or a combination of the two (hybrid), will be made within 5 weeks of the course start date.​


TARGET GROUP | Staff from ministries and other public institutions, who are involved in analyzing and/or developing climate change related socio-economic strategies at both national and international level.


DESCRIPTION | While its long-term economic, social, and welfare implications are still difficult to predict, it is evident that climate change is already taking a massive toll. This course will review the various dimensions of climate change economics and discuss policy options to mitigate and adapt to climate change. In particular, we will seek answers to the following questions: What is the current understanding of climate change, its dynamics, and potential tipping points? What are the main macroeconomic, structural, social and financial sector implications of climate change? What are the country-specific consequences and policy priorities of climate change in the JVI region? What mitigation measures can be used to contain greenhouse gas emissions, e.g. carbon taxes vs. emission trading programs? What adaptation policies can increase countries’ resilience to climate change? What is the government’s role in supporting low-carbon energy production and technological innovation? What is the role of international policy coordination?
