FEEM Seminar on “The Cost of Climate Stabilization in Southeast Asia, a Joint Assessment with Dynamic Optimization and CGE Models”
Southeast Asia is one of the most vulnerable regions of the World to the impacts of climate change. At the same time, the region is also following a trajectory that could make it a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions in the future. A balanced growth that is more resource efficient and less destructive of environmental services is attainable, with major co-benefits for ecosystem resilience and human health. Understanding the economic implications of policy options for low carbon growth is essential to formulate instruments that achieve the greatest emissions reductions at lowest cost. This seminar, jointly organized by FEEM and CMCC, focuses on Indonesia and Southeast Asia.
