HIGHLIGHTS
FOCUS ON: FEEM, Harvard and Stanford Examine IPCC

On February 18-20, 2015, twenty-four experts gathered in Berlin to explore approaches to improving the process by which research on climate change is assessed -- with a focus on the social-sciences (economics, political science, policy studies).  The workshop was sponsored by FEEM, the Harvard Project on Climate Agreements, the Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change, and the Stanford Environmental and Energy Policy Analysis Center. Leaders of three of the sponsoring organizations (FEEM, Harvard and Stanford) have prepared a memorandum drawing from the discussions at the workshop. The memo describes specific challenges and opportunities facing the IPCC and provides recommendations for improving the IPCC’s process of assessing scientific research on climate change.

Feb. 19, 2015 - FEEM Re3: "Ecology, Economics and the Management of Global Environmental Commons"

Complex environmental problems such as climate change require both an understanding of the environmental drivers and knowledge of the feedbacks between resource dynamics and human activity. The socio-economic dynamics, in turn, call for an investigation of the behavioral drivers. Alessandro Tavoni, LSE and FEEM associate researcher argues that a multidisciplinary approach, while not sufficient, is necessary to address complexity.

Feb. 12, 2015 - Venice, Italy: FEEM Seminar on"The Cost of Climate Stabilization in Southeast Asia, a Joint Assessment with Dynamic Optimization and CGE Models

Southeast Asia is one of the most vulnerable regions of the World to the impacts of climate change. At the same time, the region is also following a trajectory that could make it a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions in the future. A balanced growth that is more resource efficient and less destructive of environmental services is attainable, with major co-benefits for ecosystem resilience and human health. Understanding the economic implications of policy options for low carbon growth is essential to formulate instruments that achieve the greatest emissions reductions at lowest cost. This seminar, jointly organized by FEEM and CMCC, focuses on Indonesia and Southeast Asia.
