Climate Finance: towards a low-carbon, climate-resilient economy

The new International Center for Climate Governance (ICCG) of FEEM video lecture by Christopher Knowles,  Head of Climate, European Investment Bank (EIB), introduces the main instruments and policies to redirect investments from high carbon to low-carbon infrastructures, stressing the importance of pricing emissions. Moreover, he talks about measures investors can adopt to influence climate change positively towards a climate-resilient economy.

Institutions and the Environment: Existing Evidence and Future Directions

In this FEEM Working Paper, researchers S. Dasgupta and E. De Cian review the empirical literature on institutions, environmental policy, environmental outcomes and investments, and argue that new research on these topics can provide important insights to the broader field of sustainability transition and sustainable development.
"The empirical literature on institutions and the environment is broad, but out-of-date. Updating this literature by analyzing the impact of institutions on green investments and climate policy stringency is ripe for investigation."

Modeling Uncertainty in Climate Change: A Multi-Model Comparison

This FEEM working paper by researcher Valentina Bosetti et al. presents the results of the first comprehensive study on the key uncertainty drivers for climate change when looking at 2100 temperatures and 2100 emissions.
“The study shows that uncertainty surrounding parameters may be more important than uncertainty in model structure. The resulting distributions also provide insights on tail events, i.e. low probability and extreme consequences scenarios."

Global Energy Demand in a Warming Climate

In this FEEM Working Paper, FEEM researcher E. De Cian and professor I. Sue Wing combine an econometric analysis of the response of energy demand to temperature and humidity exposure with future scenarios of climate change and socioeconomic development to characterize climate impacts on energy demand at different spatial scales.
"Future climate change is expected to have a moderate impact on global aggregate energy demand because of compensating effects across regions, fuels, and sectors, but climate change could disproportionally affect energy demand in low- and middle-income countries".

Climate change impacts could amplify global inequalities even under ambitious GHG emission reduction policies

Researchers from Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM), Italy, and the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (PBL), the Netherlands, have authored an article in the international journal Environmental Research Letters on the possible consequences of climate change mitigation and adaptation policies on global inequalities: "Alleviating inequality in climate policy costs: an integrated perspective on mitigation, damage and adaptation".

FEEM article on Nature Energy

On June, 2016 FEEM has published an article on the scientific journal "Nature Energy". Massimo Tavoni, "Mitigation, Innovation and Transformation Pathways" FEEM Research Programme Coordinator and Giacomo Marangoni, FEEM researcher, are co-authors of the article "Comparison and Interactions between the Long-term Pursuit of Energy Independence and Climate Policies". The article explored how policies focused on energy security would affect greenhouse gas emissions. Moreover, the article is the outcome of a research project led by FEEM named LIMITS, sponsored by the European Commission.
