Conference – Economic models and tools against climate change

The Banque de France, the ACPR and the Toulouse School of Economics are organizing a joint workshop on economic models and tools against climate change, on December 12, 2019, Paris.

Climate change is a major concern for central banks for two reasons:

  • It will deeply impact financial risks and therefore asset valuations and the balance sheets of financial institutions.
  • It will impact individual economic behaviors and hence the level and volatility of GDP growth or the inflation rate

This workshop aims at discussing both fundamental and applied research on climate change related to the core activity of central banks. This includes a discussion of various types of models usable to formalize the interplay between climate change. It also includes presentations of empirical assessments of the various policy tools implemented to change carbon-consumption behaviors.
An interdisciplinary conference on “Adapting to survive : climate change and finance” will take place on the day after, Friday December 13th.
