Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy

Lead Research Organisation: London School of Economics & Pol Sci
Department Name: Grantham Research Inst on Climate Change

Abstract

The Centre aims to advance public and private action on climate change through rigorous, innovative research that links climate science, economics and other social sciences and engages users and beneficiaries throughout the research lifecycle. Our five research themes for Phase Two are:






  • Understanding green growth and climate-compatible development: what constitutes ‘green growth’ or ‘climate-compatible development’ in industrialised and developing countries?


  • Evaluating the performance of climate policies: how can we assess the performance of different forms of climate policy, and how can we understand the scope for policy learning within and between contexts?


  • Managing climate risks and uncertainties and strengthening climate services: how can we promote new approaches to the assessment, management and communication of climate risks and uncertainties, and how might these inform the provision of improved climate services?


  • Enabling rapid transitions in mitigation and adaptation: in case of slower than anticipated progress, how can we understand the scope for rapid transitions to dramatically cut emissions and adapt to significant climate change?




 

Planned Impact

We will seek to inform and influence decision-making by actively engaging with public policy-makers, businesses and voluntary-sector organisations.

We will consolidate the policy engagement initiated in Phase One, but will also broaden it to include a wider set of countries that are major emitters of greenhouse gases and/or are 'hotspots' of vulnerability to climate change.

We will use our very strong channels of communication with UK policy-makers, both nationally and locally, through a process of continual engagement that informs the scope of our work and allows opportunities for research findings to be fed into decision-making in an appropriate and timely way.

In UK national government, we will be engaged at various levels, from ministers through to civil-service directorates and divisions.

We will continue to inform UK national policy-making through written and oral evidence to parliamentary committees, input to the Committee on Climate Change, partnership activities with the All Party Parliamentary Climate Change Group, briefings for MPs and peers, and collaborations with bodies such as the Environment Agency.

We will strengthen and develop strong links with local authorities and with the networks of actors involved in low-carbon cities, in the UK and internationally, who require information and advice about low-carbon targets or financing and delivering the transition to a low-carbon economy.

We will increase our activities to engage EU decision-makers (particularly in the Commission Directorate-Generals for Climate Action and for Energy), especially on the future development of the EU Emissions Trading Scheme and the delivery of emissions targets for 2020 and beyond.

We will increase our efforts to engage policy-makers in other selected major-emitting countries, such as those that are introducing, planning or considering Emissions Trading Schemes and related carbon markets (e.g. Australia, China and South Korea).

Contacts will also be increased with national and local policy-makers on climate-compatible development in sub-Saharan Africa, which is a vulnerability hotspot facing significant adaptation challenges.

We will also continue to support the negotiations towards an international agreement on climate change, particularly through engagement with the annual summits of the UNFCCC and the G20.

We will further be able to take advantage of long-standing, high-level relationships with major international organisations, especially the multilateral development banks, including the World Bank and the EBRD.

Major projects on green growth will also be conducted in partnership with the OECD and the Global Green Growth Institute.

Our engagement with business will continue to focus on those sectors particularly closely connected with our scientific programme.

One is the financial-services sector, where (re)insurance companies and catastrophe modelling firms will be key targets for engagement, while our research on carbon markets will create opportunities for engagements with investment banks and other providers. In addition, our work on green growth and low-carbon innovation should lead to an increasingly deep engagement with institutional investors, i.e. pension and sovereign-wealth funds.

Our work on the links between mitigation policies and economic performance will be of strong interest to carbon-intensive sectors such as power and heavy manufacturing.

Our work on adaptation will be especially useful to sectors facing the challenge of investing in long-lived assets under climate change, notably energy and water supply, and our work on climate services will be relevant to organisations such as the Met Office.

By continuing to work with NGOs (not least through our Steering Committee where we hope to have continued inputs from WWF UK), we should be able to gain access to information to create new research possibilities, and sometimes better enable them to exert influence.

Sector Charity/Non Profit 
PI Contribution The Institute joined forces with the IFS to explore how energy taxes in the UK affect businesses and households. The Institute explore the taxes affecting business. The Institute's work highlighted the complexity of the current landscape of energy use taxes for business and the negative impact this is having on administrative costs and incentives to reduce emissions. It recommended streamlining energy use taxes and re-balancing the cost of using gas and coal, with the price of using electricity (which is currently more expensive, despite the need for increased electrification.
Collaborator Contribution The IFS explore the energy use taxes affecting households. It recommended removing the VAT subsidy on domestic energy.
Impact There was a main report (link above) a GRI policy paper focusing on business taxes. There was also a joint event to launch the report in London. There were also a number of briefings and presentations prepared for HMT officials. HMT called a review of business energy taxes in Autumn 2015.

Geographic Reach International
Primary Audience Policymakers/politicians
Results and Impact The debate on whether to privilege economic growth over ecological security is passé. Environmental considerations must be at the heart of economic growth, especially for a country of 1.25 billion people destined to add another 400 million by the middle of the century. Jairam Ramesh's new book Green Signals: Ecology, Growth, and Democracy in India chronicles the '1991 moment' in India's environmental decision-making, telling the story of how, for the first time, the doors of the environment ministry were opened to voices, hitherto unheard, into the policy-making process. It details efforts to change the way environment is viewed both by proponents of environmental security and those who prize economic growth at all costs.

Told from the perspective of a pivotal decision maker, the book addresses the challenges involved in trying to ensure economic growth with ecological security. It takes us through India's coming of age in the global environmental and climate change community to take on a leadership role that is progressive, proactive, and steeped in national interest. Using speaking orders on high-profile projects, notes and letters to the Prime Minister, ministerial colleagues, chief ministers and others, Jairam Ramesh gives an insight into the debates, struggles, challenges, and obstacles to bringing environmental considerations into the mainstream of political and economic decision-making.

Geographic Reach National
Primary Audience Postgraduate students
Results and Impact How can climate change policies be designed to be not only environmentally effective but also cost-effective and fair? How can they be made more acceptable politically? Professor Lawrence H. Goulder's talk will explore how these different and often competing goals can be approached. While acknowledging that no perfect approach exists, he will suggest some potentially promising directions, drawing from academic research and recent climate-policy experience at the national and international levels. In considering these issues, he will explore the potential roles for carbon taxes, cap and trade, performance standards and direct technology promotion.

Geographic Reach International
Primary Audience Policymakers/politicians
Results and Impact Parliamentarians and policy experts will discuss the findings of two recent studies on the credibility of national climate-related action and the prospects for meeting emissions targets and raising ambition post-Paris. The 2015 Global Climate Legislation Study provided insights into climate legislation and policies in 99 countries, which together account for 93 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. A new study to be released at the event develops a framework for assessing credibility of the national mitigation actions and applies it to the Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) put forward by the G20 countries.

Results and Impact Discussed Resource Risks and Financing Green Energy Futures. Business as usual has many leading investors and analysts questioning our underlying assumptions about the true costs of carbon and long-term risks of our big bet on fossil fuels. As our understanding of global climate and energy systems improves, our changing economic models are forecasting alternative futures with a wider range of investment options that could help to stabilise our transition to a green economy. This panel aims to shed light on the challenges of weighing the risks and delivering future growth that can meet investor expectations, whilst avoiding investment pitfalls

Description Energy Transitions and the Industrial Revolution 
Form Of Engagement Activity Participation in an activity, workshop or similar
Part Of Official Scheme? No
Geographic Reach National
Primary Audience Policymakers/politicians
Results and Impact Energy transitions involve both changes in the price and availability of energy sources and biased technological change that acts to integrate the new energy carriers into production systems and improve the productivity with which they are used. Professor David Stern will present empirical research on modelling the transition from traditional energy carriers to coal in Sweden using an exogenous biased technical change model and a simulation model of the Industrial Revolution in Britain using endogenous directed technical change model.

Both expansion in the use of coal and coal-augmenting technological change were critical in accelerating the rate of economic growth in Sweden in the 19th and early 20th Centuries, though over time, labour-augmenting technological change has played an increasingly dominant role in the growth process.

Professor Stern will also show how in Britain the rising price of wood relative to coal could foster the development of new types of coal-using machines, which were necessary to expand the use of coal to new applications. The predictions of the directed technical change model will be assessed against the available data and implications for the current and future energy transition discussed.

Results and Impact The United Nations Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC), to support the work of the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) in response to decision X133 of the Conference of the Parties to the CBD, is investigating the state of scientific knowledge on the climate relevance of ecosystems, with an emphasis on those systems that are still poorly represented in the emerging field of ecosystem-based climate change mitigation efforts. The aim of this work is to identify current 'hot topics' related to the management of ecosystems for climate change mitigation and biodiversity conservation, as well as priorities for research. Contributed to a literature review and assessment framework.

A literature review and assessment framework will be developed to elaborate a set of key messages to feed into preparations for the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change

Results and Impact The Paris Accord, the hoped for ambitious agreement, to be decided at the 21st Convention of the Parties of the UNFCCC, this December, will set us on a new pathway towards zero carbon growth. When the negotiators go home, what messages will they have sent to economic actors globally? How will an orderly transition to zero carbon growth be managed and financed? In response to overwhelming scientific consensus and a compelling economic case that we need to change the course of our carbon history, how will CEOs, Heads of State and others respond to the question "when you knew, what did you do?"

Rachel Kyte (@rkyte365) is a World Bank Group Vice President and Special Envoy for Climate Change. As a leading advocate for action to combat climate change because of its intrinsic link to poverty and development, Ms. Kyte is the leading figure for the World Bank Group in efforts to campaign for an ambitious agreement at the 21st Convention of the Parties of the UNFCCC this December. She is leading work on climate change adaptation, mitigation, climate finance, and disaster risk and resilience across the institutions of the World Bank Group, including IBRD, IDA, IFC, and MIGA.

Form Of Engagement Activity Participation in an activity, workshop or similar
Part Of Official Scheme? No
Geographic Reach Regional
Primary Audience Public/other audiences
Results and Impact How great is the risk of a climate catastrophe, and what should we do about it? The likelihood and possible impact of a catastrophic climate outcome is what drives the social cost of carbon (SCC), and thus the case for a stringent climate policy. But what is that likelihood, and what kinds of outcomes might occur? Might the impact of a catastrophic climate outcome be limited to a sharp reduction in GDP and consumption (as most climate models assume), or might the impact also include the deaths of large numbers of people? The answers to these questions are necessarily speculative, but we must address them. To complicate matters, there are other potential catastrophes that we must also worry about, such as nuclear or bioterrorism, or the spread of a "mega-virus." I discuss the policy implications of these threats, and consider how we might respond to the risk of climate - and other - catastrophes.

Results and Impact Some claim that ethical considerations, and especially those of justice, should be eliminated from global climate policy in favor of those based largely on narrow economic self-interest. To illustrate the dangers of this position, I argue that approaches that aim to avoid justice are at risk of endorsing climate extortion, a clear violation of ethical norms. Consequently, norms of global, corrective and intergenerational justice must be incorporated in any reasonable and feasible climate policy that does not violate intelligibility constraints.

Form Of Engagement Activity A talk or presentation

Geographic Reach National
Primary Audience Postgraduate students
Results and Impact Ecological and economic systems are alike in that individual agents compete for limited resources, evolve their behaviours in response to interactions with others, and form exploitative as well as cooperative interactions as a result. In these complex adaptive systems, macroscopic properties like the flow patterns of resources like nutrients and capital emerge from large numbers of microscopic interactions, and feed back to affect individual behaviours.

In this talk, Prof. Levin will explore some common features of these systems, especially as they involve the evolution of cooperation in dealing with public goods, common pool resources and collective movement. Prof. Levin will describe examples from bacteria and slime molds to vertebrate groups to insurance arrangements in human societies and international agreements on environmental issues.

Results and Impact Natural capital is what nature provides to us for free. Renewables - like species - keep on coming, provided we do not drive them towards extinction. Non-renewables - like oil and gas - can only be used once. Together, they are the foundation that ensures our survival and well-being, and the basis of all economic activity. In the face of the global, local, and national destruction of biodiversity and ecosystems, economist Dieter Helm offers a crucial set of strategies for establishing natural capital policy that is balanced, economically sustainable, and politically viable.

Description Public lecture | The global energy and growth challenge: Facts and directions for policy 
Form Of Engagement Activity A talk or presentation
Part Of Official Scheme? No
Geographic Reach National
Primary Audience Policymakers/politicians
Results and Impact Economic growth depends critically on access to reliable energy. However, in much of the world, access to energy remains low and supply is often unreliable. At the same time, the world's energy choices are leading to levels of pollution that are substantially shortening people's lives and causing climate change. The energy and growth challenge requires identifying solutions to these problems of access to inexpensive and reliable energy, while limiting environmental damage and guarding against disruptive climate change.

In this public lecture hosted by the International Growth Centre, the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, and LSE Department of Economics, Michael Greenstone will explore the key energy trends, especially in developing countries, and outline solutions to the energy and growth challenge that determines the well-being of the billions of people around the planet.

Geographic Reach International
Primary Audience Policymakers/politicians
Results and Impact The Paris Climate Change Agreement, achieved at the UN COP21 Conference in December, is the first legally-binding agreement on climate change since the Kyoto Protocol in 1997.

Michael Jacobs worked closely with the French Government and various international organisations in the political process leading up to the conference, having previously been adviser to UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown at the failed UN conference in Copenhagen in 2009.

In this lecture he will explore both the causes and the consequences of the Paris Agreement. Why and how was it achieved, where Copenhagen failed? What does the Agreement actually mean? And will it work? Examining the relationships between the economics of action on climate change, the politics of climate in Europe, the US, China and elsewhere, and the complex international relations of the UN negotiations, the lecture will ask: does the Agreement mark a historic turning point in the world's efforts to combat global warming, or merely another empty set of promises?

Results and Impact This talk will use tools from game theory and economics to study how special interests compete for policy interest through the news media. The talk will explain why competition among special interests can make policy better by revealing useful information. It will also explain why such competition can make policy worse by creating the impression of false doubt and controversy. Climate change has been an example of the latter case, and the speaker will argue that this is, perversely, because the issue is so amenable to scientific analysis. The talk will argue that more partisan media might actually make things better.

He further presents the reasons that make decarbonisation an urgent need, which are related to the concentration of the greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere and the consequences these have on annual GDP and productivity. The change towards decarbonisation is possible to happen since there is now the momentum for the world to turn to renewable sources of energy as the cost of these technologies has dropped dramatically. It is a fact that fossil flues companies have the money and the power to push decision makers towards the opposite direction to their benefit, however, the Paris accord and the benefits of turning to renewable sources of energy seem to make the transition unstoppable.

It raised interest in Misato's research and ideas particularly from the policy makers and European Trading Scheme stakeholders. Some people came to talk to her afterwards, from the EU Commission, CEPS, NGOs etc.

Description Workshop on Robust Decision Making in the Cauvery River Basin in Karnataka (Bhave) 
Form Of Engagement Activity Participation in an activity, workshop or similar
Part Of Official Scheme? No
Geographic Reach International
Primary Audience Policymakers/politicians
Results and Impact This workshop built on a previous workshop held in April 2015. The aim was two-fold; share information about potential future climate change in the basin and socio-economic changes with corresponding narratives, and participatory development of adaptation pathways for future scenarios. The discussion helped stimulate thinking of long-term changes, implications for water resources management decision making and improved understanding of each others' perspectives. This meeting also focussed on building links with researchers at the Divecha Centre for Climate Change, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore.

Through this workshop stakeholders were made aware of potential future climatic changes in the basin. Socio-economic narratives were discussed and validated by stakeholders. Stakeholder groups representing agriculture/farmers, industry + power, drinking water and decision/policy makers, then framed adaptation pathways from 2015 to 2050 using adaptation options elicited in previous workshop.

CCCEP researchers successfully engaged decision makers in the government departments related to water resources and re-confirmed their long-term involvement for future workshops through CCCEP and other research initiatives. Decision makers found the approach useful for their long-term planning issues which helped increase the credibility of the research. Interaction with researchers at the Divecha Centre for Climate Change, a Grantham Institute, at the Indian Institute of Science, led to discussions on linked research interests and potential for formal research collaboration.
