FOCUS ON – FEEM releases infographics on its scientific contribution on climate change

FEEM has been an active player in the climate change debate since the very beginning. First, by participating in the most important and comprehensive scientific process centered on climate change since 1995. Second, by supporting Italian delegations during negotiations processes since 1997. On the occasion of the COP21 Conference in Paris, FEEM has released a set of infographics that illustrate the story of its role in many important national and international events and projects, and its key scientific publications.

March 3, 2016 – FEEM-IEFE Joint Seminar on "Energy Scenarios: The Value and Limits of Scenario Analysis"

A need for low-carbon world has added a new challenging dimension for the long-term energy scenarios development. In addition to the traditional factors like technological progress, demographic, economic, political and institutional considerations, there is another aspect of the modern energy forecasts related to the coverage, timing, and stringency of policies to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and air pollutants.

February 4, 2016 – FEEM Seminar on "From Vulnerability and Impacts Assessment to the Identification of Adaptation Measures for the Lagoon of Carmen-Pajonal-Machona (Tabasco)"

The Carmen-Pajonal-Machona lagoon system (CPM) is located along Mexico Gulf in the State of Tabasco. It is a low-depth coastal wetland which is separated from the ocean by a fragile sand bar. It communicates with the sea through two inlets and hosts important habitats (including mangroves) and medium-small human communities, strongly relying on the lagoon ecosystem services for their subsistence.

January 28, 2016 – FEEM-IEFE Joint Seminar on "What is Behind Ambiguity Aversion? An Experiment Disentangling Model Uncertainty and Risk Aversion"

This seminar reports the results of an experiment jointly characterizing risk and model uncertainty aversion. Based on a general framework developed in Marinacci (2015), we explore subjects’ attitudes towards risk (one stage objective uncertainty about the outcome of a given model), compound risk (two-stage objective uncertainty), and model uncertainty (subjective uncertainty about potential models generating the observations).
