Using Simulation to Plan a Low-Carbon Recovery

DATE: 15 July 2020

TIME: 6:00 PM Central European Summer Time (CEST)

REGISTRATION: Registration open now on Zoom.

A conversation with  Leonardo Garrido, Lead Economist, New Climate Economy, and Andrea Bassi, CEO, KnowlEdge, and Senior Associate, IISD

Planning a low-carbon recovery requires that we look ahead to determine how public spending today can trigger economic growth tomorrow. But growth alone is not enough. There must also be widescale innovation in low-carbon goods and services, better resilience to changing climates, increased investment in education and skills, and, most importantly, deep dematerialization across value chains at home and abroad. 

We are in fact suggesting that economic support is tied to performance conditions on carbon and climate. Leonardo and Andrea will discuss how simulation can be used to look long and make wise investment decisions. 

Leonardo and Andrea will be speaking with Oshani Perera, Director Infrastructure at IISD.
