Climate change and globalisation: how important is economic integration in the fight agains climate change?
This project looks at the intersection of climate change economics and international economics; the University of Strathclyde seeks to explore interactions such as the relationship between international trade and climate change might get into a vicious cycle: economic losses due to climate change might be accompanied by reduced trade. Lower trade volumes, in turn, further reduce economic activity and wealth. As a result, fewer resources to tackle climate change are available, thus further exacerbating climate damages. What is the magnitude of the additional losses from climate change when we consider this vicious cycle (or “multiplier effect”) as compared with standard climate economics which does not consider this mechanism?
