The Banque de France, NGFS, sustainable macro and International Network for Sustainable Financial Policy Insights, Research and Exchange (INSPIRE) are organising a conference on frontiers of climate and nature in macroeconomics and finance.
The conference will address the challenges posed by environmental risks and impacts for finance, monetary policy and financial supervision.
Central banks and supervisors have recently begun to integrate climate considerations in their supervisory and monetary policy instruments. This begs several questions:
- How do climate-related economic risks and impacts relate to the larger category of environmental risks and impacts?
- What policies can be used to address these risks and impacts?
- What international and cross-border challenges emerge from implementing policies to mitigate our impact on nature and the climate?
- How to increase international financing to close the investment gap (largest in the Global South) that adaptation and mitigation strategies require?
- How can environmental-related economic risks and impacts be measured?
- How do environmental risks and impacts influence the conduct of monetary policy?
INSPIRE welcomes submissions on topics including, but not limited to:
- Biodiversity-, nature-related and environmental risks and impacts
- Integrating both climate change and environmental degradation into macroeconomics
- Nature loss and financial stability
- Environmental disclosures and metrics
- International spillover of environmental and transition risks
- Adaptation and mitigation measures (comparability of measures and international standard setting)
- Environmentally compatible financing for emerging markets
The commissions normally range from 10,000 – 50,000 US$.
- The Conference will taking place in person in Paris on 24-25 October 2022.
- Travel and accommodation will be covered for PhD students and young scholars.
- INSPIRE welcomes submissions from scholars, especially early career researchers and advanced PhD students, working on these topics.
- INSPIRE accepts proposals from all institutions conducting research, including academic-scholarship, nonprofit organisations, non-government organisations, and international financial and monetary institutions.
- They recommend research that is conducted in partnership with financial institutions and can work in cooperation between multiple organisations.
- They welcome research oriented around emerging economies and/or the global south. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
