Roundtable ‘The Impact of Climate Change on Human Capital, Economy, and Ecosystems’
On April 4-8, 2022, National Research University Higher School of Economics (HSE University) will host the XXIII Yasin International Academic Conference on Economic and Social Development (formerly known as the April Conference). In the frame of the conference we will organise the roundtable ‘The impact of climate change on human capital, economy, and ecosystems’. The planned round table will be the second April Conference event that presents research outcomes of the Human Capital Multidisciplinary Research Center (NCMU), track 6.
In 2021, the largest world economies declared zero-carbon goals (USA, China, and India) and in October-November the UK hosted the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP-26) that resulted in new important agreements for the UNFCCC implementation. However, the planned actions will not allow preventing irreversible climate changes: the governments should apply additional efforts in cooperation with business, scientists, and civil society.
These challenges will be discussed at the roundtable. The following questions will be raised:
- What is the nature of global climate changes and their impact on human capital, economy, and climate?
- What are the long-term trajectories for low-carbon development?
- What is the climate role of methane emissions to the atmosphere from subsea permafrost gas hydrates? What factors cause an imbalance in the Arctic carbon cycle?
- What are the natural, social, and economic factors of the sub-national territories’ climate change resilience?
Date and time: 7 April, 2022, 11.45 — 13.15 (CET+2).
Format: the conference will be organised online via Webinar.ru platform.
Conference working languages: English and Russian with simultaneous translation.
Contact person: Dr Liliana Proskurykova (firstname.lastname@example.org).
