Climate Econometrics, a project within the Emod Programme at INET Oxford, will be presenting its research at two distinguished events in the coming months.
Firstly, Luke Jackson, Felix Pretis and colleagues will present at a session of the European Geosciences Union General Assembly this April in Vienna. The EGU General Assembly 2018 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. The Climate Economectics session will look at the growing number of climate scientists are using econometric methods of time series and spatial analysis to explore palaeo-, historical, present and future climate, the impact of humans upon climate change and vice versa.
Secondly, the team, alongside The Department of Economics and Finance at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”, together with CREATES at Aarhus University, will host the 3rd Conference on “Econometric Models of Climate Change” at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata” on September 6th – 7th. The conference aims to promote an interdisciplinary approach to the detection and attribution of climate change, cross-fertilization between climate science and econometrics, and econometric estimates of climate impacts and policy evaluation. The call for papers for this event is out now so please click here for further information. We solicit submissions of papers whose novelty stems from the development and introduction of new econometric methods to models of climate change – inviting both papers using econometric methods to analyze climate data, as well as econometric studies of climate impacts. We particularly welcome submissions in the field of climatology highlighting interesting statistical challenges to which econometric methods can contribute.
Please send titles and abstracts (or completed papers) no later than May 31st, 2018 to one of the organizers:
The Climate Econometrics project and network within Emod concentrate on developing econometric methods to augment climate-economic research by helping disentangle complex relationships between human actions and climate responses and their associated economic effects, masked by stochastic trends and breaks. They aim to improve understanding of the impact of humanity on climate and vice versa, as well as on how econometrics can be used in climate-economic research, and bring together researchers in the field of Climate Econometrics through an international network.
The Climate Econometrics project and network is based at Nuffield College and the Department of Economics at the University of Oxford, in collaboration with the Environmental Defense Fund, and funded by the Robertson Foundation.
