The Transition to a Low-Carbon Economy – and How to Finance It
Climate change demands change – technological, economic, social. As we face these transitions, the question remains, how do we pay for it?
Nebojsa Nakicenovic, Deputy Director General of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), will join SCEPA and the Fordham School of Law to discuss how to finance the pathway to global sustainability.
As an international leader on economic development in response to climate change, Nakicenovic contributed to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), authored over 300 scientific publications, and has degrees from Princeton University, the University of Vienna, and the Russian Academy of Sciences.
The talk will be followed by a panel discussion on the economic, legal and financial consequences of climate change mitigation and adaptation with Fordham Law School’s Clinical Professor of Law Paolo Galizzi, director of the Sustainable Development Legal Initiative and The New School’s Economics Professor Willi Semmler, director of SCEPA’s Economics of Climate Change project.
The event is sponsored by SCEPA’s Economics of Climate Change project and Fordham University School of Law’s Sustainable Development Legal Initiative (SDLI). The event is generously supported by the Fritz Thyssen Foundation, The New School’s Tishman Center for Environment and Design (TEDC), and the Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET).
