Through a set of foundational topics, CETEx supports policymakers around fundamental questions and technical challenges as they work to address environmental degradation and climate change and support the transition to a sustainable and resilient economy through economic and fiscal, and monetary and financial market policy. Understanding growth, inflation and employment dynamics, as well as transmission mechanisms across different climate scenarios and economic systems, is essential for economic and financial policymaking. Furthermore, it is imperative to build on a holistic understanding of the different dynamically interacting components of climate change and environment, including the role of the land and oceans.

Our foundational topic areas include:

  1. Transition scenarios, pathways and supply chains vulnerabilities
  2. Macroeconomic dynamics in the transition
  3. Policy transmission and transition mechanisms in different economy systems
