Economics of Climate Change

Analysis of climate change impacts, adaptation measures, mitigation strategies, and institutions and policies for long-term adjustment to climate change

With climate change, South Asia is expected to face more variation in temperature and precipitation, more extreme weather events, and sea level rise over time. These changes are affecting millions of poor people in South Asian countries. Research on economics of climate change will focus on:

a) evaluation of the impacts of climate change;

b) economic analysis of adaptation measures;

c) evaluation of the mitigation strategies, particularly those that offer local co-benefits; and

d) examination of institutions and policies that need to be in place for low carbon growth and long-term adjustment to climate change.
