4-8 July, 2017 – CIRED, Paris, France
The first Summer School in Economic modelling of Environment, Energy and Climate will take place from July 4th to July 8th at CIRED headquarters, Paris. The topic of this first edition will be "Modelling approaches to assess NDCs and mid-century strategies".
The Paris Agreement provides a shared framework to upscale climate change mitigation and relates an ambitious long-run target to medium-run national action based on NDCs. It is thus becoming crucial to assess climate policy at national scale. The necessary alignment with other sustainable development goals opens the question of the technological, social and economic implications of NDCs and mid-century strategies. National strategies are also largely interdependent (through, inter alia, energy markets, trade, foreign investment, etc.), and they must thus also be studied in a global context.
The aim of the Summer School is to foster scientific exchanges between participants and faculty members about these issues and the relevant applied modelling methods to address the different dimensions of the problem, including energy models, Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) models, Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs).
The Summer School is aimed at advanced graduates (PhD and master) and post-doctoral students in environmental and energy economics and modelling.
The lectures given by the School’s faculty members will provide the background scientific material. Participants will be asked to present a version of their research work and will receive valuable feedback from fellow students and faculty members. Additional activities include group project exercises, reading sessions and conferences.
