Organizers

This course in jointly organized and financed by the Doctoral Program in Economics (Instruments of the Economic Analysis), the Basque Centre for Climate Change (BC3) and the Research group on Economics and the Environment (UPV/EHU, Gobierno Vasco, IT-799-13).

Description of the Course

This course applies input-output analysis to issues on trade, on environment, and on growth. For the production of commodities and services, industries depend on other industries for their intermediate products. More and more, such linkages between industries cross borders. Input-output analysis is a tool that takes such inter-dependencies in the production structure into full account. It has been applied to a wide variety of topics, ranging from agricultural and development economics to disciplines dealing with energy and environmental issues. The course will focus on three of such topics.

Typical questions are the following. How much high-skilled labor in the US is involved in satisfying the demand for cars by households in Australia, reflecting trade in production factors? What is the greenhouse gas footprint of China, or how large are the Chinese "exports" of greenhouse gas emissions? What percentage of the growth in German GDP between 1995 and 2009 was due to the increased household consumption in the rest of the EU? To analyze these questions, the World Input-Output Database will be used.

"Future Options for EU Climate Policies and their Public Acceptability Workshop"

BC3 co-organizes Workshop Cecilia 2050 Workshop
"Future Options for EU Climate Policies and their Public Acceptability"
22 October 2014 (Charles University in Prague)

Objective:
The CECILIA2050 research project is entering its last and third year and is preparing to focus on its ultimate goal of formulating near-term and medium-term policy recommendations: how could andshould the EU climate policy mix evolve to put the EU on track towards a low-carbon economy? What is the role for economic instruments (carbon pricing) in the policy mix, and for which decisions areplanning tools necessary? How should climate and energy policy should interact? It is one thing to analyse which policies appear most efficient and effective. Yet, to be implementedsuccessfully, any policy mix will also need public acceptance – in the current political and economic climate even more so than in the past. In this context, the objective of this workshop will be to explorethe acceptability of different types of climate policies, in order to understand how the design of policy
instruments affects their acceptability. This will be explored both at the EU level and at the Member State level, such as the Czech Republic.

Format:
The workshop is meant to provide a forum to discuss different approaches and policy instruments (market based vs. technology focused vs. behavioural), looking also at public preferences for differentpolicy approaches and, therefore, their acceptability.

Schedule:
The workshop will last a full day (9-17:30), October 22nd, 2014. It will take place at Charles University in Prague (Rectorate Building, Ovocný trh 3, Praha 1).The day before, CECILIA 2050 consortium is hosting an internal meeting, presenting and debating current analysis on climate policies in Europe beyond 2020, which will bring non-Chez experts intotown that could also participate in the workshop.

Audience:
The workshop targets an audience of 30-40 participants, including experts from academia, from
government, think tanks and civil society. This small group will allow for a targeted debate and will
give everyone the opportunity to contribute directly to the conversation.
