Final Conference Economics of Climate Change on May 30-31, 2022

Despite or precisely be­cause of the dramatic global political situation, climate protection rep­re­sents a central task for securing an en­vi­ron­ment worth living in for future gen­era­tions. Ac­cord­ing to the latest report of the IPCC, all in all this decade remains to initiate the trans­for­ma­tion of the global energy system and the associated reductions of greenhouse gases. For more than 10 years, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has funded scientific projects in the field of the economics of climate change, through which economists have explored efficient ways to achieve these goals.

The Dialogue on the Economics of Climate Change has accompanied the research activities and supported the discussion of project results with stake­holders. To conclude the second funding phase, the multifaceted results of this funding will be presented and discussed with interested parties from business, politics, administration and society at our major conference "10 Years of Economic Research on Climate Change" at the dbb forum Berlin on May 30-31, 2022.

Climate Cabinet Simulation Game

In March 2019, the German federal government established the so-called "Climate Cabinet". The goal of the ministers represented in the cabinet is to implement effective climate policy. The Climate Foundation for Citizens Sinsheim and ZEW Mannheim developed a simulation game for pupils which makes climate policy decision-making processes tangible and conveys climate economics in a vivid way.

The Dialogue

The future development of climate change strongly depends on the current decisions about investments, consumption and regulation in the economy, society and politics. At the same time all areas area already affected by climate change impacts. However, knowledge about their interrelation and the efficient instruments for practicable climate policy are often missing. Therefore, the BMBF funding measure Economics of Climate Change II  sponsors 29 research projects that provide solution-oriented knowledge in the field of climate economics.

Dialog bei der Kick-off Konferenz

The multitude of results will be communicated beyond the boundaries of the research com­munity. In order to support this transfer of knowledge and to inten­sify the exchange between scientists and practitioners, the fund­ing measure is sup­ported by the Dialogue on the Economics of Climate Change. Invited to dialogue with climate economists are societal, commercial and (non-)governmental stakeholders.
