Ökonomie der Anpassung an den Klimawandel

Work Package 6: Integration of Results

This project analyses the economics of adaptation from three - although economic - but still quite diverse perspectives: Firstly, some possible future changes in macroeconomic parameters caused by impacts from climate change and adaptation measures will be modelled. Secondly, institutional conditions for successful implementation of climate adaptation strategies will be analysed. Finally, a variety of valuation methods will be derived from different normative theories.

This work package faces the challenge of highlighting the relationship between the different economic approaches used in the project and creating a constructive cooperation between the three participating institutions. The work package under the lead of the IÖW provides the coordination between the project partners with regard to their methodologies as well as contents and ensures the integration of the results.

Following questions will be addressed in the course of this working package:

  • How can the results from the institutional analysis of the adaptation policy be implemented in the macroeconomic modelling?
  • How can the results of macroeconomic and regional modelling enrich the institutional analysis?
  • How do the results of the extended CBA and the institutional analysis influence each other? Can knowledge about institutional impacts of a political measure support the evaluation of the measure? Or do the results of the evaluations allow us to derive conclusions about the institutional conditions in a certain region?
  • How can the results of the institutional analysis and from the extended CBA support political decision processes?


In order to enable a constructive collaboration between the project members internal project meetings will be arranged regularly. Moreover, workshops on comprehensive subjects will be held during the project life time.
