Panel on the Macroeconomics of Climate Change
CEPR's newly appointed Vice President for Climate, Mar Reguant, will chair and moderate the upcoming panel on the Macroeconomics of Climate Change, where Carlo Carraro, Alessio Terzi, Beatrice Weder di Mauro and Ugo Panizza will discuss the macroeconomic aspects of climate change:

- how capitalism can be enrolled in the fight against climate catastrophe.
- what policies can set in motion a global decarbonization wave and create good jobs and a better, greener, healthier world.
- How climate mitigation and adaptation is paid for, and who pays for it, considering instruments such as sovereign bonds, carbon credits, conditional official grants, and debt relief from both public and private sources.

The panel will draw upon Alessio Terzi's book "Growth for Good" and the 25th Geneva Report on the World Economy "Climate and Debt".

Moderated by Mar Reguant, Associate Professor, Northwestern University, Research Fellow, Barcelona School of Economics and Vice President for Climate, CEPR.
