Brussels, 14 Sep 2005
The Joint Research Centre's (JRC) Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS) has published a call for tenders related to a project to improve economic projections of the impacts of climate change in sectors in Europe based on bottom-up analyses.
There is a need to improve our knowledge of the benefits of climate policy, as a comprehensive, systematic and consistent assessment of the monetized damage of climate change in the various sectors in Europe is not available yet. In that context, IPTS is launching a project on the monetised sectoral impacts of climate change in Europe. The project will try to provide monetary valuations of the expected impacts of climate change in Europe, potentially useful for policymakers, given the state-of-the-art of today's methods and knowledge on the physical impacts of climate change. This project is called 'Projection of economic impacts of climate change in sectors of the European Union based on bottom-up analyses, PESETA'.
The expected value-added from the PESETA project comes mainly from putting together, synthesising, the nowadays available sectoral impact studies in Europe under a consistent climatic and socio-economic framework, as well as from the expected progress in the databases, statistical relationships and quantitative methods of the various sectoral assessments. The PESETA project includes the following impact categories: coastal systems, energy demand, human health, agriculture and tourism.
