Important Deadlines

May 15, 2018: Deadline for registration. Please note that, accepted papers will only be included in the final program if presenting authors have registered by May 15, 2018.

Call for papers for the special session on Climate Risks and Financial Stability

Recent studies conducted both by academics and central banks show that the exposure of the financial system to climate risks is considerable.

Despite this growing interest in climate risks and financial stability, academic research on these issues is still limited. In order to fill this gap, EcoMod2018 is organizing a special session on 'Climate risks and financial stability'. We welcome contributions that focus both on the physical and the transition climate-related financial risks using network analysis, agent-based approaches, macroeconomic dynamic modeling and econometric approaches. We also welcome contributions that analyze climate-related developments in the financial markets (e.g. the green bond market) and the conditions under which the gap between finance and sustainability could be reduced thanks to central banks' policy tools (e.g. unconventional monetary policies such as the quantitative easing, and collateral framework) and macroprudential regulation (e.g. by including green supporting factors or brown penalizing factors in banks' capital requirements).

The papers that will be presented at the special session will be considered for a special issue of the Journal of Financial Stability on climate risks and financial stability.

Abstracts (300-500 words) should be sent via email to Yannis.Dafermos@uwe.ac.uk and irene.monasterolo@wu.ac.at by 21 May.Notifications will be emailed out by 28 May.
