The United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (UN SDSN) launched the SDG Index and Dashboards – Global Report

Following last year’s adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (UNSDSN) on Wednesday July 20, 2016 in New York launched the SDG Index and Dashboards – Global Report. The report – published jointly by the UN SDSN and the Bertelsmann Stiftung - shows where each country stands with regards to the SDGs and aims to help every country to identify priorities for early action and to understand the key implementation challenges and the gaps that must be closed in order to achieve the SDGs by 2030. In this framework, Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM), hosting institution of SDSN Italia, will organize on September 27, 2016 in Milan, the international workshop “Analytical Tools and Methods to Evaluate Impacts of Public Policies on Sustainable Development Goals” to sum up the main results of the research models to evaluate policies for the SDGs achievement. One of them is the SDG Index and Dashboards – Global Report that will be presented during the FEEM workshop in September.

FEEM announces release of latest FEEM Press volume “Turkey’s Regional Gas Hub Ambitions”

Because of its strategic geographical location at the crossroads of Caspian, Middle Eastern and Eastern Mediterranean gas-rich countries and Europe, Turkey has progressively emerged in the international debate as a potential key regional gas hub. This volume by FEEM reseracher Simone Tagliapietra seeks to provide a realistic assessment of Turkey's potential role in the regional gas markets, beyond the mainstream rhetoric.

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".
