Climate change is without a doubt one of the biggest challenges of our time. It can harm the entire ecosystem, worsening the living conditions of humans and many animal species. It can increase the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, like hurricanes, floods, and drought, causing several socioeconomic impacts. It is a global event, but their impact and mitigation and adaptation actions are regional. Climate economics has a crucial role here. It can link the scientific base of climate change to the policy by estimating the socioeconomic impact of different climatic scenarios, identifying local and regional vulnerabilities, and evaluating mitigation and adaptation policies.

This call aims to mobilize publications on climate and regional development strategies and possible policy responses to climate change. We kindly invite contributions on topics related (but not limited) to:

  • The cost of action and/or inaction to face climate change
  • Local and regional impacts of extreme weather events
  • Effects of climate change on migration and labor market
  • Vulnerability assessment
  • Policy evaluation
  • New tools and methods for climate economics analysis

Invitation for submission

We welcome original, unpublished papers that address the above questions, or any other research questions not mentioned, as they relate to regional and climate economics. We look forward to papers from all parts of the world.

Please note that the deadline for submitting papers to for the RSPP Special Issue on Climate Economics is November 15, 2023, with foreseen publication of accepted papers in 2024. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you need more information.
