Virtual event: Carly Beckerman and Julian Williams - Institute of Hazard Risk and Resilience

Wednesday, 5 May 2021
14:00 to 15:00
Carly Beckerman and Julian Williams
Virtual event

Topic: Long run investment in climate change and the tyranny of discount rates.

As part of the Durham University COP26 Event Series: ‘STEAM for ACE’.

Climate finance covers the broad topics of investments in both climate mitigation and resilience across the globe. The finance strand in COP26 looks at the funding mechanisms for all of the other thematic components of COP26 and it is here that we begin with a discussion on the incentives, regulation and pricing of investments relating to climate change/crisis and the green economy.

We start on the 5 May with the very longest term outlook and a critique of economic modelling of climate impacts and pathways to better outcomes over the intermediate and long term. This session will look at the changing landscape of public investment, particularly in the United Kingdom and the United States.
