With Climate-Economics hot on the political and research agenda we are pleased to highlight a key session at the European Geoscience Union General Assembly, which runs 3-8 May 2020 in Vienna, Austria.

Haven't heard of EGU? Take a quick look here:

The EGU General Assembly 2020 will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience.

Luke Jackson from Climate Econometrics will be convening a session: Economics and Econometrics of Climate Change: evaluating the drivers, impacts, and policies of climate change.

Understanding the impact of climate change on natural and socio-economic outcomes plays an important role in informing a range of national and international policies, including energy, agriculture and health. Economic models of climate impacts used to guide policy rely on multiple components: projections of future climate change, damage functions, and policy responses, each of which comes with its own modelling challenges and uncertainties. We invite research using process-based (e.g. Integrated Assessment Models) and empirical models of climate change to investigate future impacts, together with policy evaluation to explore effective mitigation, technology and adaptation pathways. Furthermore, we invite research on changes to, and new developments of climate-economic and econometric modelling.

Abstract submission deadline is 15 January 2020 (1300 CET) and the Early registration deadline is 31 March 2020.
