The course aims to introduce students to applied quantitative methods currently used for the economic assessment of environmental problems and of environmental policies at the micro and macro scale. At the end of the course, students will get acquainted with the basic principles of the different quantitative tools, their practical implementation, and will acquire the capacity to apply them also in contexts which are beyond the field of environmental economics.
Expected learning outcomes
Students will learn basic tools for the quantitative assessment of climate change impacts on economic outcomes, considering both global and country/sectoral impacts. At the end of the course students will be able to develop simple empirical applications using statistical models and stylized general equilibrium models.
