The 1st NAVIGATE-CIRED International Summer School on  “Equity and justice in transitions to net zero emissions societies – contributions from Integrated Assessment Modelling studies”
will be held on 4 – 8 July 2022 in Paris, France (in beautiful Jardin Tropical, our CIRED campus).

The aim of the Summer School is to foster scientific exchanges between participants and faculty members about the issue of how to achieve a just and equitable transition
to net zero emissions, and the modelling methods relevant to address the different dimensions to this broad issue.

  • What are the short and medium term distributional impacts of climate change mitigation policies?
  • How will different economic sectors be affected by climate policies?
  • How to achieve such a transition in line with sustainable development goals?
  • How may the transition ensure decent lives and decent jobs?

Those are some of the questions that will be raised during the Summer School, which will gather students working primarily with integrated assessment models to address the different dimensions of this topic.
The lectures given by the School’s faculty members will provide the background scientific material. Participants will be asked to present a version of their research work and will receive valuable feedback from fellow students and from the School’s faculty members. Additional activities include group project exercises, reading sessions, conferences and social events. The faculty will be composed of researchers involved in the NAVIGATE project, and international leaders in environmental economics and integrated assessment modelling. The Summer School is aimed at
advanced graduates (PhD and master) and post-doctoral students in environmental and energy economics and modelling.

Confirmed faculty members:
Johannes Emmerling (RFF-CMCC)
Julie Rozenberg (The World Bank)
Lucas Chancel (Paris School of Economics, World Inequality Lab, Sciences Po)
Céline Guivarch (CIRED, Ecole des Ponts ParisTech)
Aurélie Méjean (CIRED, CNRS)
