Climate and weather events (heatwaves, droughts, storms), geopolitical events (economic and armed conflicts), as well as economics shocks (financial breakdown) depict a global context in which crisis overlap and accumulate, which have strong socio-economic impacts and can make climate action more difficult to implement. Meanwhile, achieving carbon neutrality of our society is an unquestionable objective to mitigate climate change and to avoid further worsening of those crisis.

Overall, understanding how net zero emissions can be achieved in the shortest delays, and coping with crisis and their implications at the same time are questions of paramount importance. This long-term perspective suggests identifying synergies and trade-offs between climate change mitigation and adaptation to crisis, elaborating combinations between short run adjustment and long term actions, and defining public policies and private strategies. An additional concern comes from the economic and financial environment, actually characterized by high inflation and remedies that stress the role of national policies, like the Inflation Reduction Act in the US.

This annual edition of the Annual Conference of the Climate Economics Chair will shed lights on these issues, by gathering researchers in economics, finance and econometrics.
