EAERE Summer School 2014 on the Economics of Adaptation to Climate Change

Robert Mendelsohn and I will co-ordinate the 2014 EAERE Summer School. The Summer School is aimed at Ph.D. students that are already writing a thesis on the economics of adaptation to climate change and want to engage into a highly interactive exchange with experts in the field. Students will be asked to present an advanced version of their research work and will receive valuable feedback from fellow students and from the School professors. Students will also be assigned a tutor that will provide individual feedback during consultation time.
