Valuation of CO2 emissions in CBA: implications of the scenario study Welfare, Prosperity and the Human Environment

The scenario study Welfare, Prosperity and the Human Environment (WLO ) forecasts long-term developments on four topics, climate being one of them. The study’s climate scenarios have been constructed taking into account various ways of international collaboration on the climate issue around the world. The WLO climate scenarios are characterised by a CO2 emission budget for the rest of the century and an associated CO2 emission reduction target.

Technological Uncertainty in Meeting Europe’s Decarbonisation Goals

In response to the challenge of managing the risks of a changing climate, there is no single optimal transition path for energy technology due to uncertainty in several dimensions.

The social discount rate under a stochastic A2 scenario

Using a general equilibrium model in which both capital productivity and temperature are uncertain, we show that the social discount rate (SDR) will decline.
