BC3 Joint Seminar: March 27, 2019

March 27, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

BC3 Seminar
“Synergies and trade-offs of climate change mitigation pathways: an integrative assessment approach “

Junior researcher Dirk Van de Ven

BC3 and UPV-EHU,  Doctoral Programme in Economics: Tools of Economic Analysis

Time: 12:00-12:30


Climate change mitigation can be achieved with a variety of strategies, each specific strategy having impacts on more things than just global temperature change, such as land use, health, inequality and geopolitics. Within this context, I present a study where the land impacts on strategies relying on solar energy are quantified and compared with other energy strategies. The land use for solar has been specified within an integrated assessment model that integrates energy, land, socioeconomic and climate systems (GCAM). Within a context of global climate action, scenarios with a high penetration of solar energy have been translated to regionally dependent land requirements, and the consequences of land competition with other land uses such as agriculture and forestry have been quantified in land cover change and related land use change emissions.

BC3 Seminar
“Risks, costs and co-benefits associated to different low carbon transition pathways “

Junior researcher Jon Sampedro

BC3 and UPV-EHU,  Doctoral Programme in Economics: Tools of Economic Analysis

Time: 12:30-13:00


Air pollution and climate change are two interrelated environmental risks, and research communities are increasingly interested in assessing and comparing the health co-benefits and mitigation costs of different climate actions. In this context, I will present a developed integrated methodology that subsequently connects: an integrated assessment model (GCAM), an air quality tool (TM5-FASST) and an economic valuation approach (VSL). The combination of these elements enables us to calculate the monetized health benefits of climate policies. After which, I will show a recently published scientific article which compares the health co-benefits and costs of different mitigation scenarios based on different long-term temperature targets (2ºC and 1.5ºC) and burden-sharing criteria.
