Economics of Climate Change Adaptation in Europe (ECONADAPT)

October 2013 to September 2016
The ECONADAPT project, on the Economics of Adaptation, was a research project funded by the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). Recognizing that there is an economic rationale for climate change adaptation, the ECONADAPT project set out to advance the knowledge and evidence base on the economics of adaptation and to develop practical material to support decision making processes. ECONADAPT applied adaptation economics in several decision making scenarios that could require economic information including risk management, project appraisal, impact assessments and planning processes. Throughout the project innovative methods were co-developed and tested in a participative way with diverse stakeholders engaged in adaptation policy at multiple governance scales.Read more

Investigating the Use of Environmental Benefits in the Policy Decision Process

A Qualitative Study Focusing on the EU Water Policy
European Union (EU) legislation, such as the Water Framework Directive (WFD), as well as international, national, and regional environmental policies and strategies explicitly acknowledge the importance of environmental costs and benefits and the need to integrate them into the policy-making process. However, the application of valuation studies to policy often involves a trade-off between the accuracy of the required analysis and the necessity to include all costs and benefits associated with the different policy options. Thus, there is no accepted EU-wide approach on how to deal with environmental benefits in the policy process. Read more

Proofing the European Commission's Competitiveness Proofing

April 2013 to June 2013

In difficult economic times, the impact of policy proposals on economic competitiveness need to be considered. Nevertheless it is crucial not to lose sight of the needed long-term transformation of the European economy when doing so. The EU commission has introduced a methodology for the competitiveness proofing of its policy. Ecologic has been asked to assess whether the methodology takes into account the desired transformation of the EU economy.

The assessment benchmarked the obligatory methodology for the competitiveness proofing with existing EU targets (EU 2020 targets andRead more
