CALL FOR CONCEPT NOTES: Economics of Climate Change
Human activity is altering the earth's climate with serious implications for food security, health, biodiversity and natural disasters. South Asian countries will need to respond with strategies to both mitigate green house gases and adapt to climate change. The South Asian Network for Development and Environmental Economics (SANDEE) would like to increase its support for research on the economics of climate change. SANDEE is currently inviting research pre-proposals on the Economics of Climate Change. Pre-proposals, if accepted, will lead to an invitation to submit a full research proposal.
SANDEE is soliciting concept notes on the following topics: a) The benefits, costs and distributional impacts of specific adaptation or mitigation strategies. b) Economy wide impacts of climate change policies through the use of macro-economic models. c) Incentives related to international climate mitigation/adaptation instruments and climate negotiations. d) Economic analyses of local and regional climate problems such as haze and black carbon and strategies to mitigate these. e) Extreme events and the economic viability of ‘adaptation instruments' such as insurance, improved natural barriers or institutional responses.
