Economist Willi Semmler presented his research at a workshop organized by the Council on Economic Policies (CEP) and the Bank of England (BoE) on Central Banking, Climate Change, and Environmental Sustainability.

Semmler, director of SCEPA’s Economics of Climate Change project, shared his work modeling mitigation and adaptation policies on climate change. His presentation is based on work with Helmut Maurer from the Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics at the University of Muenster in Germany and New School students Michael Flaherty, Arkady Gevorkyan and Siavash Radpour.

The event brought together researchers from academia, central banks, and other institutions to discuss how monetary policy and financial systems can be used to mitigate climate change.
