IEc is well-known for its expertise in analyzing the increasingly
critical issue of how economies and resources might be affected by global climate change.
- Modeling the effects of sea level rise and storm surge on U.S. coastal structures and development;
- Assessing risks of drought presented by climate change in the U.S.;
- Developing climate adaptation plans for the agriculture, water resources, and coastal
sectors in the U.S. and developing country settings; and
- Testifying before the U.S. Senate on the design of financial mechanisms to ensure the carbon
capture and sequestration (CCS) industry is adequately capitalized to fund future liabilities.
IEc staff led the effort to develop a
published volume that integrates the results of several projects
funded by the Electric Power Research Institute on the economic impacts of climate change. Additionally, we were
core contributors to the World Bank's Economics of Adaptation to
Climate Change volumes.
