The achievements of recent decades in reducing inequality are currently threatened by several short-, medium- and long-term crises simultaneously: the energy and food crisis caused by the pandemic and war in Ukraine, the fundamental shift towards low-carbon societies with its transition risks, and the increasing impact of the already changing climate. This has the potential to lead to major distributional conflicts in societies around the world and between countries. Sustainable policy solutions must take into account the various short- and long-term impacts and effectively protect the most vulnerable groups. Over the past three and a half years, the partners of the CHIPS project have been investigating distributional effects of climate policies and impacts at national and global levels, as well as ways to integrate them into IAMs.
At the CHIPS final event, the project results were presented and discussed with representatives from research and practice. The event focused on the question of what additional challenges have arisen as a result of the current crises and how these can be countered. Recordings and slides of the presentations held by CHIPS partners as well as the keynote speakers Norbert Gorißen (German Federal Foreign Office) and Julie Rozenberg (World Bank) are now available on the CHIPS website
