Joint FEEM-IEFE seminar on climate change impacts in the Mediterranean: the economic assessment of the CIRCE project”
Climate change is expected to have non negligible impacts on world economies and societies, and its effects are likely to be exacerbated by the socio-economic and environmental vulnerability of the impacted region.
On Thursday 20 October 2011, the FEEM-IEFE joint seminar by FEEM senior researcher Francesco Bosello will illustrate the main findings of a project on “Climate Change and Impact Research: the Mediterranean Environment” (CIRCE project). Key research results provide an assessment of the direct and indirect economic impacts of expected climate change in the Mediterranean, with a focus on tourism attractiveness, energy demand and land loss driven by sea-level rise, showing higher vulnerability in the Southern Mediterranean regions.
