A summary of CMCC’s contribution to the 27th Annual Conference of the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists, taking place from 28 June to 01 July 2022.
The 27h Annual Conference of the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (EAERE), whose Secretariat is managed by CMCC Foundation, is taking place from 28 June to 01 July 2022 at the PalaCongressi of Rimini (Italy). The conference is organised by the Department of Economics of the University of Bologna (UniBo), with the support of Bank of Italy and the European Institute on Economics and the Environment (EIEE).
The Policy Outreach Committee (POC) of the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (EAERE) prepared a statement on the EU’s legislative proposals on climate change. The statement, presented for endorsement to the whole scientific community in Europe and worldwide, has already obtained more than 900 endorsements. It aims to draw the attention of policymakers and public opinion on the implications of the legislative package and on some key challenges that need to be addressed in the future. While the package can be further improved, it takes a step in the right direction if we want to raise the ambition of the European climate policy and achieve climate neutrality by mid-century.
To endorse the Statement, signing it here
Researchers of the RFF-CMCC European Institute on Economics and the Environment (EIEE) and the CMCC Economic analysis of Climate Impacts and Policy (ECIP) Research Division will actively participate in the conference as organizers and chairs of a Policy Session and an Award Session (June 29). Moreover, their papers will be presented in policy, thematic, parallel, and egg-timer sessions. CMCC’s contribution to the 27th Annual Conference of the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists is summarized below.

Policy Session 1: Border Carbon Adjustments: Drivers or Impediments for Climate Ambition?
2:00 PM – 3:45 PM
Organised by the RFF-CMCC European Institute on Economics and the Environment (EIEE) and supported by the H2020-MSCA-RISE project GEMCLIME-2020
Countries are increasingly pursuing climate plans consistent with reaching climate neutrality but with different levels of carbon pricing and regulatory effort. Against this backdrop of heterogeneous mitigation incentives, Border Carbon Adjustments have been proposed to address competitiveness concerns, to deter emission leakage, and to encourage ambition, by ensuring that imports face the same explicit or implicit carbon price faced by domestic producers in countries with more ambitious climate policies. However, BCAs are institutionally complex, the evidence of carbon leakage is limited, and the implications for international cooperation and climate justice are not clear. The aim of this policy session is to assess the environmental and economic impact of border carbon adjustments. Panelists will discuss the potential role of BCAs to promote or deter climate ambition, and to encourage emission reductions effectively and fairly.
