a research article by Swenja Surminski  5 October, 2017

Improving society’s ability to prepare for, respond to and recover from flooding requires integrated, anticipatory flood risk management (FRM). However, most countries still focus their efforts on responding to … read more »

The effects of home energy efficiency upgrades on social housing tenants: evidence from Ireland

a working paper by Bryan Coyne, Sean Lyons, Daire McCoy  28 September, 2017

This research examines the impact of a home energy efficiency upgrade programme on social housing tenants, drawing from a sample from a large home energy efficiency programme in Ireland, the SEAI Better Energy Communities Scheme. read more »


Subjective measures of climate resilience: What is the added value for policy and programming?

Subjective measures of climate resilience: What is the added value for policy and programming?

a research article by Abbie Clare, Rebecca Graber, Lindsey Jones, Declan Conway  26 September, 2017

Subjective approaches to resilience measurement are gaining traction as a complementary approach to the standard frameworks that typically contain objective measures. Proponents suggest that subjective approaches may add value … read more »


Uncertainty and ambiguity in environmental economics: conceptual issues

a working paper by Geoffrey Heal, Antony Millner  26 September, 2017

In this paper, the authors’ treatment of uncertainty in environmental applications is motivated by two leading examples: climate change and biodiversity loss. They argue that in these cases uncertainty is sufficiently far-reaching that standard decision-making tools such as expected utility theory may no longer capture important aspects of our uncertainty preferences. Richer models of decision-making, which allow us to express lack of confidence in our information, may be more desirable. read more »


Consumer surplus from energy transitions

Consumer surplus from energy transitions

a working paper by Roger Fouquet  26 September, 2017

This paper estimates the consumer surplus associated with heating, transport and lighting over more than 200 years and identifies the gains from a number of key energy transitions. read more »


Energy policy and the power sector in the long run

Energy policy and the power sector in the long run

a working paper by Baran Doda, Sam Fankhauser  26 September, 2017

This paper simulates the distributional consequences of alternative carbon emission reduction policies on power producers and finds that that a carbon tax outperforms all other instruments and does not reduce the profits of carbon-free generators. read more »


Insurance, public assistance and household flood risk reduction: a comparative study of Austria, England and Romania

Insurance, public assistance and household flood risk reduction: a comparative study of Austria, England and Romania

a research article by Swenja Surminski  4 September, 2017

In light of increasing losses from floods many researchers and policy makers are looking for ways to encourage flood risk reduction among communities, business, and households. In this study the authors investigate risk reduction behavior at the household level in three European Union (EU) Member States with fundamentally different insurance and compensation schemes. read more »


A theory of gains from trade in multilaterally linked ETSs

a working paper by Baran Doda, Simon Quemin, Luca Taschini  4 September, 2017

This paper develops a novel theoretical tool with which a jurisdiction can evaluate the economic gains it can expect to obtain by linking its emissions trading system (ETS) to one, two or many ETSs at the same time. read more »


Does choice of drought index influence estimates of drought-induced cereal losses in India?

Does choice of drought index influence estimates of drought-induced cereal losses in India?

a working paper by Francisco Pereira Fontes, Ashley Gorst, Charles Palmer  28 August, 2017

This research suggests that by using a more flexible measure of droughts policy-makers could more effectively shape policy responses relating to climate adaptation and more accurately identify agricultural locations more vulnerable to climate change. read more »
