HIGHLIGHTS
FOCUS ON: Climate Policy amidst Uncertainty, Risks and Expectations

Progress towards mitigating climate change has been hampered by the large uncertainties surrounding its impacts and solutions, and the different approaches to valuing the associated risks. A new article by FEEM and CMCC researchers Laurent Drouet, Valentina Bosetti and Massimo Tavoni. appearing in the journal Nature Climate Change shows how this needs not to be the case. Using the latest data and methods from climate and decision science, researchers at Italian research institutes have generated ways to design efficient climate policies using the current state of knowledge about climate science and economics.

July 30, 2015 - FEEM Seminar on "Implications of the 2030 EU Resource Efficiency target on Sustainability"

What are the implications of achieving the EU27 Resource Efficiency target on sustainability? In this week's seminar, FEEM researcher Fabio Eboli presents an application of a model-based framework specifically conceived to assess future sustainability over time, at country and macro-regional level, across scenarios. The flexible methodology allows analyzing the effects of indicator-specific policies on the sustainability dimensions (economy, society, environment), as well as on sustainability as a whole.

July 23, 2015 - FEEM Seminar on "Fuzzy Measure, Choquet Integral and Preferences Elicitation. An Application to FEEM Sustainability Index and ICCG Think Tank Ranking"

Fuzzy measure and Fuzzy integral are a brilliant mathematical solution for multiple criteria  decision analysis in that they are able to capture and model interaction among criteria - from redundancy to synergy. In this seminar, FEEM researcher Luca Farnia will introduce the  fundamentals of Fuzzy Measure theory and fuzzy aggregator (Choquet Integral).  Two specific applications in the context of composite indices are also briefly shown in all their phases ranging from questionnaire design for fuzzy measure elicitation to data aggregation.

July 16, 2015: FEEM Seminar on "Social Willingness to Pay under Equity Concerns"

To what extent do risk and equity preferences affect society's willingness to pay to eliminate a social risk, which is defined as a global risk that has differentiated impacts across subgroups of the population?  In her presentation Maddalena Ferranna, Toulouse School of Economics, considers three approaches to equity: utilitarianism, concerns for the distribution of individual risks and concerns for the distribution of realized individual risks. For each approach a social premium is defined and subsequently decomposed in a risk premium and an inequality premium. Finally, two applications are presented: the social cost derived by the risk of major hurricanes in the US and the mitigation policy to avert climate change risk.
