Trade and Development Workshop ; Economic Effects and Policy Responses to Climate Change and Natural Disasters Conference

Economic Effects and Policy Responses to Climate Change and Natural Disasters Conference

We are pleased to invite you to join the Institute for International Economic Policy (IIEP) and the World Bank for a workshop to discuss recent policy research related to the economics of climate change and natural disasters. One set of studies analyzes the global economic and spatial effects of climate change and different policy options to mitigate its negative economic consequences, especially those related to migration, trade, taxation and innovation policy. Another set of studies focuses on the localized economic impacts of climate change and natural disasters in Africa, and corresponding policy options to promote mitigation and resilience, including technologies, infrastructure and fiscal policy. This event is jointly organized by IIEP with the World Bank Poverty and Equity Global Practice, and the Office of the Director for Regional Integration for Sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East and Northern Africa of the World Bank.
