The team in charge of GEMMES of Agence Française de Développement organizes a series of workshops specialized in climate economics integrating the theoretical aspects linked to the transition to a low-carbon and resilient economy. The seminars are intended for PhD students in economics or a similar background. The event will take place on 10-12 July in AFD’s headquarters in Paris.
GEMMES’ mission is to contribute to the dialogue of national and international public policy related to adaptation to climate change and the transition to a low-carbon economy. The workshop will consist of an introductory seminar; four country (GEMMES’ partners) seminars; four hot topics seminars and one round table entitled “what does it mean to think of an economy in 2050?”. A keynote lecture will be given by Guillaume Pitron, specialist in rare metals.
The program is intended for PhD students, but will consider Master students based on the applicant’s background and desire to pursue a research career, academic or otherwise.
