Climate risks and policies

Climate change is a risk multiplier: It increases risks, fragility, inequalities and the vulnerability of economies. Responding to the challenges of climate change requires a comprehensive approach to transition towards resilient low-carbon economies. Achieving this transition requires an understanding of the socio-economic and socio-political factors that enable and constrain a “just transition“. The PEGNet Conference 2021 will provide a platform for leading development scholars, practitioners and policy-makers to reflect on relevant topics in the field of development economics. Ottmar Edenhofer, Director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), will give a key note on the conference's first day and Sophie von Loeben, also a scientist at PIK, will take part in a session on "Policies for strengthening resilience and managing risk" on its second day.
