credits 3 EC
fee EUR 1200

Climate change impacts on the economy (on agriculture, income, migration) and appropriate regulation of « the greatest externality the world has ever seen », as the Stern Review puts it, are increasingly at the center of the policy and scientific debate. This PSE summer school program aims at teaching participants the cutting-edge research on the topic and to familiarize them with the relevant methods to analyze the issue (econometric analysis, dynamic modelling). The objective of the course is to equip the participants with the background and tools needed as a researcher to contribute to this dynamic field. The main questions we cover are the following: How do we measure the impacts of climate change on economic outcomes? What are the relevant economic instruments to combat climate change in a globalized world? How can migration and trade help countries and individuals mitigate the impacts of climate change and/or disasters? How do lobbying and information acquisition influence the actual climate policies?
