The SEME Division analyses the transition to sustainability, helping identify and evaluate low carbon, sustainable strategies. The approach used is multidisciplinary, with strong use of quantitative methods based on data science, integrated modeling and experimental and behavioral economics.
- Evaluate the low carbon transformation of the energy, land and climate sectors;
- Evaluate behavioural and traditional policy interventions for promoting pro-environmental behavior;
- Assess green innovation and its determinants;
- Study the interplay between various sustainable development goals;
- Identify robust policy strategies to climate risks and uncertainties;
- Identify technological and societal transition pathways;
- Study climate induced migration.
