Final Conference Economics of Climate Change on May 30-31, 2022
About 150 participants from academia, politics, society and business wrapped up the second funding phase at the conference 10 Years of Economic Research on Climate Change. It was the first meeting in a long time to present and discuss the results of the research conducted by the 29 project consortia. A varied program in the tradition of the Forum Climate Economics series led through the two days and provided an opportunity for exchange on climate policy challenges in the context of the current global political situation and on the longer-term tasks for climate economics research in the societal transformation process.

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 Winners of the Early Career Best Paper Award
As part of the final conference of the Dialogue on the Economics of Climate Change, the Early Career Best Paper Award was presented to three young scientists on May 30, 2022. We congratulate the three winners Hannes Greve (1st place), Lorenzo Montrone (2nd place) and Svenja Fluhrer (3rd place). Learn more...
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.
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.
