The project concentrates on developing econometric methods to augment climate-economic research by helping disentangle complex relationships between human actions and climate responses and their associated economic effects, masked by stochastic trends and breaks. This will lead to an improved understanding of the impact of humanity on climate and vice versa, on how econometrics can be used in climate-economic research, bring together researchers in the field of Climate Econometrics, help create more accurate historical climate records, and reduce uncertainty in socio-economic scenarios for long-run predictions of the resulting climate damages.

The project is based at Nuffield College and the Department of Economics at the University of Oxford, in collaboration with the Environmental Defense Fund, and funded by the Robertson Foundation.
