Climate Change
Macroeconomics and Finance Forum

How are climate risks transmitted to the macroeconomy and financial systems? Which modelling frameworks best grasp the complex linkages between climate change, the economy and financial markets? How can they help in improving monetary and financial policies? What should be the role of central banks in tackling climate change?

Our forum, Climate Change, Macroeconomics and Finance, delves into these questions and more. It provides rigorous research, debates, and sound insights in economics. It aims at providing a unique source of information and debate for academics, central bankers and policy makers on ongoing research and policy options. It also aspires to aggregate knowledge from around the globe and trigger the engagement of economists who are studying the environmental challenges ahead of us.

Our twice-monthly webinars will host scholars to discuss their research. Members of our forum – economists from academia, central banks, international institutions and think tanks – will have the chance to comment and discuss the findings on our platform.

The forum is by invitation only but the webinars are open to the public.
