The Economic Consequences of Climate Change

image of The Economic Consequences of Climate Change

This report provides a new detailed quantitative assessment of the consequences of climate change on economic growth through to 2060 and beyond. It focuses on how climate change affects different drivers of growth, including labour productivity and capital supply, in different sectors across the world. The sectoral and regional analysis shows that while the impacts of climate change spread across all sectors and all regions, the largest negative consequences are projected to be found in the health and agricultural sectors, with damages especially strong in Africa and Asia.

The damages from selected climate change impacts to 2060

This chapter first briefly outlines the main socioeconomic trends that are projected to emerge regardless of climate change or climate change policies. It then presents the results of the numerical evaluation of the economic costs of climate change until 2060 using the ENV-Linkages model. The focus of this assessment of the damages from climate change is on market impacts and macroeconomic consequences, but the chapter also investigates consequences for specific regions, the sectoral structure of the different economies, and the consequences for international trade.
