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 and its dynamics? What are the main macroeconomic, structural, social and financial implications of climate change? What are the country-specific consequences and policy priorities of climate change in the JVI region? Why is system-wide change needed? What key mitigation policies can be used to contain greenhouse gas emissions? What is the role of international policy coordination?
