The CEPR Climate Change and The Environment programme aims to bring together a diverse community of economists working on pressing issues concerning energy, climate change, biodiversity, air and water pollution, and other critical environmental and natural resource issues. The goal is to provide a productive environment for researchers to develop their research agendas from the perspective of their core fields and create deeper synergies and linkages between the research groups, given the systemic nature of these challenges. The group is formed by existing members of CEPR as well as new members who expand our knowledge and expertise on core climate and environmental areas.

Among other topics, we will address:

  • Economic effects of environmental and climate impacts and policies on firms and households
  • Inequality implications of environmental and climate impacts and policies within and across countries
  • Economic assessment of the costs and benefits of mitigation and decarbonisation efforts
  • Adaptation to extreme weather events and other climate impacts
  • Adaptation and public health management of pollution
  • Risks and insurance with a growing climate uncertainty
  • Innovation and R&D policies surrounding environmental and climate policies
  • International cooperation for mitigation and adaptation
  • Quantifying the causes and consequences of biodiversity loss and its environmental impacts
  • The political economy of environmental and climate policies
  • Market design for energy, climate and environmental policies
  • Finance focused on sustainability and decarbonisation
