Save the date: CHIPS final event “Current crises and future climate change: how to prevent rising inequality and societal conflict” on February 27, 2023


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 rather faltering fundamental shift towards low-carbon societies, and the increasing impact of the already changing climate. This has the potential to lead to major 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 final event, the results will be presented and discussed with representatives from research and practice. The focus will be on the question of what additional challenges have arisen as a result of the current crises and how these can be countered.

The CHIPS final event on “Current crises and future climate change: how to prevent rising inequality and societal conflict” on February 27th, 2023 will take place online and in English.

More information and a registration link will be available on the CHIPS website soon.
