Why Economics of Climate Change?
Economics of Climate Change is the emerging discipline that aims to broaden the economic aspects of climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies. This is a long-term issue that needs to be taken into consideration by policy makers and the business environment while designing strategic plans. At the same time, it remains the core of sustainable development strategies, as the impacts of climate change will strongly affect future generations. At the CECC, we believe that the challenges of climate change should be faced from multiple perspectives. We focus on economic, managerial and financial aspects related to this global challenge.
By enhancing the flow of knowledge and international collaboration we seek to better understand the dynamics of the impacts of climate change and the related threats and opportunities.
Originating from one of the most industrialized and densely populated regions of Europe, we share knowledge and research opportunities available in our home area with academic fellows from all over the world. In parallel, a global outlook of the CECC team enables a strong and unique impact on climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies in our region and Poland as a whole.
We strongly believe that by recognizing, anticipating, studying and making sense of this global phenomenon, the scientific community of the University of Economics in Katowice can help create a better world for future generations.
