Climate Change Impacts and Policies in Heterogeneous Societies
Climate change impacts and climate mitigation policies have different effects in different locations and for different societal groups. Socio-economically vulnerable groups will likely be hit hardest. Research supporting policy makers in the development of measures that reduce climate change and contribute to greater social justice is therefore of the utmost urgency.
CHIPS provides improved conceptual understanding and advanced modeling tools for integrating distributional effects, climate change challenges and related policies. Different integrated scenarios are modelled and analysed. It bridges the scales between large world regions and households as well as local and global impacts of climate change and mitigation policies.
CHIPS will deliver future pathwaysassessing the distributional effects of climate impacts, including improved representation of damages in modelling, and climate policies on a global scale, as well as investigating different policies to reduce inequality
A first study for the European Union demonstrates that regressive effects of a comprehensive EU carbon tax can be offsete.g. with equal-per-capita transfers (Feindt et al. 2021)
CHIPS also investigates the attitudes of European citizens to carbon taxation, aiming to identify ways to increase acceptability of measures (first results in Ewald et al. 2021)

Assessment of Cross(X) - sectoral climate Impacts and pathways for Sustainable transformation
The ERA-NET Consortium AXIS (Assessment of Cross(X) - sectoral climate Impacts and pathways for Sustainable transformation) aims to promote cross-boundary, cross-community research with the overall goal to improve coherence, integration and robustness of climate impact research and connect it to societal needs. To this effect, AXIS aims to overcome boundaries between science communities through inter- or transdisciplinary research projects.
