Climate Action: What do Economists think? - ONLINE ONLY

Event Type: ESA Event

Date: Monday Dec 6, 2021, 12:00 pm

From: Central Council

Climate change is arguably one of the most important and complicated economic and public policy challenges facing our generation. As NASA says, one of the complexities of climate change is that it is a global problem, felt on local scales.  The IPCC 2021 climate change report and the recent UN 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26) has served to intensify the policy debate here in Australia. In light of this, our National Women in Economics (WEN) committee has gathered together four female thought leaders and expert researchers to present their research and insights and engage in a panel discussion.  Timing of this event is AEDT (timezone converter)
