International Conference on Economic Modelling and Data Science (EcoMod2019), Azores (Portugal)
Last International Conference on Economic Modeling and Data Science, #EcoMod2019 organized by EcoMod Network (www.ecomod.net) took place from 10th to 12th July 2019 in Ponta Delgada, Azores (Portugal).
The goal of this event was to promote the exchange of ideas and experience among economists conducting quantitative analysis for policy and decision making in the public and private sectors.
SOCLIMPACT received special attention thanks to its special session on: Climate Change Adaptation, Islands and the Blue Economy- the H2020 project SOCLIMPACT. The session was composed by three main contributions:
The Institute for Economic Structures Research (GWS MBH) Germany, represented by Ulrike Lehr & Mark Meyer, presented a communication entitled:
- ¨Climate Change Adaptation and the Blue Economy – the example of the Canaries¨
The E3- Modelling PC Greece, represented by Ioanis Charalampidis, presented a communication entitled:
- “Data preparation and macroeconomic projections for regional CGE models of European Islands”
The E3-Modelling Ike, (E3M) Greece, represented by Zoi Vrontisi, presented a communication entitled:
- “Macroeconomic assessment of Climate Change impacts on Blue growth sectors in CGE and IO modelling frameworks”
For modelling downscaled Climate Change effects in European islands, as well as suggesting tailored adaptation measures to local administration and stakeholders is really important the translation of Climate Impacts into meaningful changes in model parameters and economic variables.
However, data like Input-Output table are often scarce or incomplete at the regional level, for what is necessary setting data sources, methods for balancing IOTs and methodologies.
