Helsinki: FEEM-ICCG-CMCC policy session on “Climate policy co-benefits for public revenues and economic growth”
As a result of the global economic downturn, national budget deficits have been growing as a percent of GDP and public spending for infrastructure development has been reduced. Can public investment in new energy technologies be part of the solution to support economic growth? In the framework of the 21st EAERE Conference, FEEM, ICCG and CMCC are organizing a policy session on “Climate policy co-benefits for public revenues and economic growth”. Professor Carlo Carraro (FEEM) will chair the session, and the discussants will be Thomas Sterner, University of Gothenburg, Ottmar Edenhofer, Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, Carolyn Fischer, RFF and Francesco Bosello, University of Milan.
