CESifo Area Conference on Energy and Climate Economics 2022
December 2023Nairobi, Kenya
This course addresses the question of why fundamentally equal humans living in different countries enjoy very different standards of living. The aim of this course is to make the very latest research in economics on these issues accessible to anyone who is sufficiently curious about it. It is modeled after the award-winning undergraduate development course at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), and, like its model, it is entirely based on research articles.
Keynote Speaker: Maureen Cropper (Resources for the Future)
Scientific Organizer: Professor Maximilian Auffhammer.
The scope of relevant topics for this conference is broad, ranging from climate mitigation and adaptation to the study of energy and resource markets as well as environmental market failures more broadly. The aim of the Energy and Climate Economics Area is to bring leading researchers from both sides of the Atlantic together to facilitate and discuss new and innovative theoretical and empirical research.
The keynote speech at the 2022 conference will be delivered by Maureen Cropper (Resources for the Future).
It is planned to hold the conference as an on-site event in Munich. The conference organizers may change to a hybrid or online format should Covid-19 restrictions require this. Participants will be kept informed by the CESifo conference team.
Paper submission for this conference are open.
