HIGHLIGHTS
May 12, 2015 - Milan: FEEM Lecture "Arctic Amplification, Climate Change, Global Warming. New Challenges from the Top of the World"

The progressive transformations related to global warming in the Arctic are posing new challenges which require appropriate reflection as well as innovative and efficient solutions. Presenting the results of over 40 years of research, Professor Peter Wadhams, Head of the Polar Ocean Physics Group and one of the most renowned international experts in the field, will provide a unique perspective on the relationship between global warming in the Arctic and geopolitical dynamics, along with new solutions to address the issues at stake.

May 11, 2015 - FEEM Milan: international conference "Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security"

Climate change impacts agricultural production. While crops in some parts of the world benefit from the changing climate, anthropogenic climate change is posing an overall negative impact on agriculture and the food security that is dependent on it. With global food production expected to increase by 70 percent within 2050, the agro-food sector is facing unprecedented resource pressures, with more on the horizon. On May 11, 2015 FEEM, ICCG and CMCC, together with the French Embassy in Italy, will host the international conference "Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security" under the patronage of Commissariat Général de la France at Expo 2015 to address the role of agriculture and food in the post-2015 development agenda and to develop strategies for a sustainable development path for future food systems.

April 20, 2015 - FEEM Seminar: "Informative Inefficiencies and Social Networks in the Decision to Adopt Improved Cookstoves: Experimental Evidence from Mali"

During this seminar, Jacopo Bonan (Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore and Lab Expo, Fondazione Feltrinelli), will present the issue of energy poverty and access to more efficient cookstoves in Mali, where 95% of urban population uses solid fuels for cooking through traditional inefficient technologies with likely adverse consequences on health and fuel expenditure. Upon completion, the research project will allow to evaluate the long-term effects of purchase and usage of improved cookstoves on women’s time allocation and health conditions, household fuel expenditure and saving.

April 9, 2015: FEEM Seminar on "Budgetary Effects of Adaptation in EU Mediterranean Countries: A CGE Framework Applied to Sea Level Rise"

In a background of a financial crisis along with high levels of indebtedness and aging population, high unemployment levels and the need for fiscal outlays for unemployment compensation or welfare benefits, climate change policies seem to appear as something which would not be regarded as an urgent policy also in many European countries. In fact, in a situation where public budgets are overstretched due to economic crisis, there is an increasing need to understand the implications of climate change impacts, climate change mitigation and adaptation policies on the fiscal side.

April 2, 2015 - FEEM Re3: "Climate Change and Migrations"

Given that climate change is and will continue to impact regions in different ways, migration from the areas most exposed to climate change needs to be considered. Fostering a better understanding of climate-related migration will also be a fundamental step in securing the future stability of our planet and action on poverty reduction.

April 2, 2015 - Innovation under Uncertainty: The Future of Carbon-free Energy Technologies

Stabilization of atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases to safe levels will require, at least in the longer run, some kind of technological revolution. This, in turn, can only be achieved through investments in research, development and demonstration (RD&D) of carbon-free energy technologies. This new volume of the Edward Elgar Publishing - FEEM series on Economics, the Environment and Sustainable Development,  “Innovation under Uncertainty”, edited by FEEM researchers Valentina Bosetti and Michela Catenacci, presents original research and insights on the uncertain future of carbon-free energy technologies.

April 2, 2015 Venice: FEEM-ICCG Joint Seminar: FEEM Sustainable Business and Social Change Initiative: Between ‘Research Action’ and ‘Reflective Practice’

This week Ilaria Lenzi, FEEM senior researcher, will present the FEEM “Sustainable Business and Social Change Initiative” (FEEM SBSC-I).  FEEM started investigating the relationship between companies and their stakeholders in the early 1990s. After the creation of the CSR and Sustainable Management Research Program in 2001, FEEM also established significant and systematic partnerships overtime with major institutions at an international level. In 2013, FEEM launched the Sustainable Business and Social Change Initiative (SBSC-I), a cross-cutting research working group focused on social innovation and sustainable business.
