The economic impact of climate change and of climate mitigation policies in Mediterranean and MENA countries

"For fossil-fuels exporting countries the economic cost of climate mitigation might be much higher than the economic cost of climate change impacts."

This is the key message of the presentation "The economic impact of climate change and of climate mitigation policies in Mediterranean and MENA countries" that I gave on January 25 at the meeting "Climate change in the Mediterranean: The importance of international cooperation and a solid research basis" at the European Parliament in Brussels.

The meeting was organized by the "Mediterranean" subgroup of the "Climate Change, Biodiversity and Sustainable Development", chaired by MEP Theodoros Skylakakis.

The presentation was based on a recently published working paper (joint with Fabio Sferra) and on on-going work with Elena Ricci.
