This model/simulator (based on the DICE 2010 model (Nordhaus, Yale University)) helps students to understand the relationships between climate change, economics, and social factors. Users can configure policy, climate, and economic parameters to observe the effects.
This model/simulator predicts peak global oil production and allows an educator to introduce discussions on topics such as oil as an energy source, its peak and reserves, and the economics and geopolitics of oil.
|In this model/simulator, a learner can project future carbon emissions based on changes in the global population, economic activity, energy intensity and energy sources.|
In this activity, students are introduced to the concept of Cost Benefit Analysis and learn how the costs and benefits of carbon abatement are calculated. They also learn to calculate the price of carbon emissions for an efficient global carbon abatement level.
The requirements on financial instruments to support climate action are multiple. This self-paced E-learning Course introduces various topics in Climate Finance for Economics students and practitioners.
