Abstract

CCCEP was established in October 2008 with the aim of advancing public and private action on climate change through rigorous, innovative research. Even though much of our research is ongoing, we have made several major academic contributions:

- Improving understanding of the uncertainties in climate models, developing state-of-the-art economic models of decision-making under uncertainty and applying them to climate change, and pursuing novel methods of participatory assessment/modelling.

- Exploring different routes to a global climate agreement and alternatives to state-based governance, all the time emphasising the role of institutions.

- Advancing knowledge on the potential for climate-friendly forms of development, and development-friendly forms of adaptation. We have advanced new integrated methodologies for identifying adaptation priorities, including 'vulnerability hotspots'.

- Conducting interdisciplinary research on interventions towards a low-carbon economy, including robust econometric evaluation of the impacts of existing policies, analysis of carbon markets that bridges theory and practice, and an examination of the roles of states and markets.

- Developing new methodologies bridging the gap between macro-scale simulation modelling and micro-scale, context-specific approaches.

To build research capacity, we have strengthened the links between key disciplines and the climate debate, trained over 50 PhD students and provided new university courses at all levels. We have actively engaged with key decision-makers at all stages of the research process, influencing the UN climate negotiations at a high level, working closely with the World Bank and other international organisations, engaging heavily in UK climate policy on critical issues such as the fourth statutory carbon budget, impacting on policy-making in many other countries and engaging with private decision-makers, e.g. through our collaboration with Munich Re. We have also secured c. £28 millon in leveraged funding.

Extensive consultations have highlighted the need to address the financial crisis/downturn, the continuing absence of a comprehensive international climate treaty, and recent controversies on climate science. They have stressed the need for more integrated approaches to climate research, to continue making a distinctive contribution in the context of other climate research, and to contribute to ESRC Strategic Priorities.

Our five research themes for Phase Two are:

1. Understanding green growth and climate-compatible development: what could constitute green growth or climate-compatible development in industrialised and developing countries?

2. Advancing climate finance and investment: how can we unlock major flows of finance into both adaptation and mitigation in different contexts? What are the implications of such flows?

3. Evaluating the performance of climate policies: how can we assess the performance of different climate policies and how can we understand the scope for policy learning?

4. Managing climate risks and uncertainties and strengthening climate services: how can we promote new approaches to the assessment, management and communication of climate risks/uncertainties?

5. Enabling rapid transitions in mitigation and adaptation: how can we understand the scope for rapid transitions to dramatically cut emissions and adapt to significant climate change?

Beyond the planned scientific programme, we propose to a CCCEP Innovation Fund with the aim of stimulating, developing and disseminating innovative ideas from both the academic and practitioner communities.

Our plans for Phase Two build on the solid institutional foundations of Phase One, including CCCEP's position at LSE/Leeds, its management structure and its key staff. However, we also plan to refresh the team. We will continue to engage with key stakeholders throughout the research process and to exploit a range of pathways to impact.

Planned Impact

We will seek to inform and influence decision-making by actively engaging with public policy-makers, businesses and voluntary-sector organisations.

We will consolidate the policy engagement initiated in Phase One, but will also broaden it to include a wider set of countries that are major emitters of greenhouse gases and/or are 'hotspots' of vulnerability to climate change.

We will use our very strong channels of communication with UK policy-makers, both nationally and locally, through a process of continual engagement that informs the scope of our work and allows opportunities for research findings to be fed into decision-making in an appropriate and timely way.

In UK national government, we will be engaged at various levels, from ministers through to civil-service directorates and divisions.

We will continue to inform UK national policy-making through written and oral evidence to parliamentary committees, input to the Committee on Climate Change, partnership activities with the All Party Parliamentary Climate Change Group, briefings for MPs and peers, and collaborations with bodies such as the Environment Agency.

We will strengthen and develop strong links with local authorities and with the networks of actors involved in low-carbon cities, in the UK and internationally, who require information and advice about low-carbon targets or financing and delivering the transition to a low-carbon economy.

We will increase our activities to engage EU decision-makers (particularly in the Commission Directorate-Generals for Climate Action and for Energy), especially on the future development of the EU Emissions Trading Scheme and the delivery of emissions targets for 2020 and beyond.

We will increase our efforts to engage policy-makers in other selected major-emitting countries, such as those that are introducing, planning or considering Emissions Trading Schemes and related carbon markets (e.g. Australia, China and South Korea).

Contacts will also be increased with national and local policy-makers on climate-compatible development in sub-Saharan Africa, which is a vulnerability hotspot facing significant adaptation challenges.

We will also continue to support the negotiations towards an international agreement on climate change, particularly through engagement with the annual summits of the UNFCCC and the G20.

We will further be able to take advantage of long-standing, high-level relationships with major international organisations, especially the multilateral development banks, including the World Bank and the EBRD.

Major projects on green growth will also be conducted in partnership with the OECD and the Global Green Growth Institute.

Our engagement with business will continue to focus on those sectors particularly closely connected with our scientific programme.

One is the financial-services sector, where (re)insurance companies and catastrophe modelling firms will be key targets for engagement, while our research on carbon markets will create opportunities for engagements with investment banks and other providers. In addition, our work on green growth and low-carbon innovation should lead to an increasingly deep engagement with institutional investors, i.e. pension and sovereign-wealth funds.

Our work on the links between mitigation policies and economic performance will be of strong interest to carbon-intensive sectors such as power and heavy manufacturing.

Our work on adaptation will be especially useful to sectors facing the challenge of investing in long-lived assets under climate change, notably energy and water supply, and our work on climate services will be relevant to organisations such as the Met Office.

By continuing to work with NGOs (not least through our Steering Committee where we hope to have continued inputs from WWF UK), we should be able to gain access to information to create new research possibilities, and sometimes better enable them to exert influence.

Description The mission of CCCEP is to advance public and private action on climate change through rigorous, innovative research. We have undertaken a broad programme of research over the past 9 years, into both adaptation to climate change and mitigation (reducing greenhouse gas emissions), in both developing and developed countries, and from the perspective of a number of disciplines. It is therefore impossible to capture all of our findings in a short space. However, leading examples of our achievements include:

Improving the understanding and use of climate models in decision-making
Our research has advanced understanding of the predictive capabilities of climate models, developed theories of decision-making and planning under 'deep' uncertainty, and applied them in real-world situations, such as defending the UK's coasts from flooding, setting global greenhouse gas emissions targets, and planning water resources in India. This was made possible by forging new alliances between climate science, economics, philosophy and other social sciences, as earlier research on climate models and their applications took place largely in silos.

Designing economic instruments to fight climate change
We are a world-leading authority on the design of economic instruments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, such as carbon taxes and emissions trading schemes. We have been central to the development of theory and evidence on how to design well-functioning emissions trading schemes, which are coalescing to form a global carbon market. For example, our research on how to ensure stable prices in emissions trading schemes has directly informed the creation of the EU's Market Stability Reserve. Our research on the pros and cons of linking trading schemes across jurisdictions is also directly informing the UK government's thinking about climate policy after Brexit.

Creating an evidence base on the economic effects of existing climate and energy policies
We are at the forefront of the 'empirical revolution' in climate and energy economics, greatly improving the quality of evidence informing questions such as: do climate policies destroy jobs? Are they effective in reducing emissions and stimulating clean innovation? This revolution involves applying modern statistical techniques to large sets of quantitative data, in order to convincingly demonstrate cause and effect. We have created data sets, for example on low-carbon patents and international trade in embodied carbon, and we have studied the effects of existing climate and energy policies, for example on the productivity of firms and employment.

Governing low-carbon transitions through turbulent times
Our research has also advanced the theorisation of social transitions and the role of government, individuals and ideas therein, by investigating UK climate policy dynamics during austerity. It indicates that there is a growing gap between climate policy targets and action in the UK due to a shift towards short-term economic and political priorities. This raises questions regarding how 'climate leader' countries will be able to cope with the rapid and deep decarbonisation that is needed in the years to come. A shift towards more polycentric forms of governance is one avenue through which ambition can be maintained.
Exploitation Route As mentioned above, CCCEP has undertaken a broad programme of research over the past 9 years. The current, second phase of CCCEP comprises five research themes: (1) understanding green growth and climate-compatible development; (2) advancing climate finance and investment; (3) evaluating the performance of climate policies; (4) managing climate risks and uncertainties and strengthening climate services; and (5) enabling rapid transitions in mitigation and adaptation. In addition, CCCEP part-funds other research on climate change economics and policy at LSE and Leeds, which extends the scope of our work still further.

Findings from right across our programme of research are contributing to academic debates and lines of inquiry. The ways in which they are doing so include stimulating ideas for new research questions, new collaborations between CCCEP researchers and other academics, and creating datasets for use in new research projects.

In addition, CCCEP has always placed great emphasis on impact with non-academic audiences. The findings of our research are being used to inform the design of climate change response strategies at multiple scales, including city planning, national and international emissions trading schemes, and the architecture of the UN process that brings together countries to negotiate on climate cooperation.

Description CCCEP's findings during its second phase (2013 to date) have informed policy and practice at the local, national and international levels, in the public, private and third sectors, in the UK and around the world. In this section we present some of the foremost examples of our impact. Supporting the international climate negotiations and the UN Paris Agreement The results of CCCEP's joint research programme on climate laws of the world has guided the plans of lawmakers and negotiators at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, plans for new national legislation on climate change, and policies to strengthen the credibility and implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions to the UN Paris Agreement on climate change. For example, CCCEP's joint analysis with staff in the then UK Department of Energy and Climate Change of the aggregate impact of emissions pledges in countries' intended Nationally Determined Contributions was used by many negotiators ahead of the Paris summit. The research carried out by CCCEP's chair, Lord Stern, has been highly influential around the world. As co-chair of the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate, he has contributed to important reports that have persuaded governments and other policy-makers of the potential for economic growth and development offered by the low-carbon transition, particularly from investments in sustainable infrastructure. The Commission's first report was launched at the UN in September 2014, and informed many discussions ahead of the crucial UN climate change summit in Paris in December 2015. Lord Stern's analysis of the importance of multilateral development banks in financing the low-carbon transition has played a crucial role in securing support for the Paris Agreement from emerging-market and developing countries. His work on the opportunities arising for China from the low-carbon transition has been well-received at the annual China Development Forum and during other engagements with Chinese policy-makers. CCCEP research has also been very influential on policy-makers' understanding worldwide of the potential economic impacts of climate change. The importance of Lord Stern's analysis of the weaknesses of economic models has been widely recognised, and CCCEP researchers played a crucial role in shaping the relevant sections of the Fifth Assessment Report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. In addition, CCCEP researchers' calculations of value at risk due to climate change have been cited frequently in the financial sector, and CCCEP has had an extended engagement with policy-makers through the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures. Identifying effective policies for low-carbon and climate-resilient growth in the UK and EU CCCEP has carried out direct engagements with policy-makers in the European Commission about key aspects of the European Union's climate policies, including the role of carbon capture and storage. CCCEP's work on carbon markets has informed and influenced discussions among Member States and the European Commission about reform of the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme, and is helping UK policy-makers to consider its options for future continuation in, or withdrawal from, the Scheme after Brexit. In the UK, CCCEP's research has helped to shape the second national Climate Change Risk Assessment, and many aspects of the implementation of the National Adaptation Programme, particularly in relation to managing flood risk, including through the new Flood Re scheme. On mitigation, CCCEP has contributed to discussions about the setting and implementation of the Fifth Carbon Budget, including the benefits and limitations of specific instruments to reduce emissions, such as carbon pricing (carried out jointly with the Institute for Fiscal Studies). CCCEP has continued its research on the economic and policy implications of key technologies, including fracking. Since 2015, it has been helping policy-makers to explore the implications for climate policy of Brexit, including opportunities for the new industrial strategy to foster low-carbon growth and increase exports of low-carbon goods and services to countries outside the European Union. CCCEP's researchers have also been influential in demonstrating how climate policies boost innovation and competitiveness, leading to extended engagements with both UK national policy-makers and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development. Cutting emissions and improving lives in the world's evolving cities More than half the world's people now live in urban areas, and cities account for nearly three-quarters of the world's energy-related GHG emissions. The urban development decisions taken in the next few years will be crucial in the fight against global climate change. CCCEP has developed new approaches for cities to understand their emissions, how they could switch to low-carbon development paths and the economic case for this switch. The team's work started in the UK and has helped many cities to integrate low-carbon investments into their economic development and urban regeneration plans. In the Leeds City Region, the evidence helped the Local Enterprise Partnership make the case for a low-carbon development strategy, and to create a £20m fund for domestic energy efficiency improvements. It also led to the creation of the innovative Leeds Climate Commission, with input from 24 key public, private and civic partners from the city region (see leeds.candocities.org). The recent publication of carbon accounts and summary low-carbon plans for every UK local authority is estimated to have saved them over 100 years of effort (see candocities.org). Internationally, related research in Peru, Brazil, India, China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Rwanda and Canada has led to the adoption of low-carbon strategies in cities around the world. The team's assessment for the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate estimated that the savings generated by investments in low-carbon development in the world's cities would have a current value of US$16.6 trillion in the period to 2050. This research was covered extensively in the world's media and played a key role in the urban conversation that fed into the Paris Agreement. Improving land management in the drylands of developing countries Some of the world's most vulnerable people and ecosystems exist in dryland regions. Widespread decline in the benefits that the land provides are contributing to the loss of options available to dryland communities to cope with the effects of climate change. CCCEP has researched the opportunities for improvement in dryland management, which have led to national and international policy changes. In the drylands of southern Africa, national and international policy-makers have rarely taken local knowledge of dryland management into account. For example, in the Kalahari rangelands of Botswana, national policy statements have focused on wind erosion and land privatisation, rather than addressing the problem of thorny bush encroachment onto grazing lands, which our research has found poses more problems to local people. CCCEP has developed new ways to enhance community involvement in environmental monitoring and land management decision-making. It has identified locally-relevant degradation indicators and produced sustainable land management guides as tools for management decisions. The guides outline practical and cost-effective options for local land management committees, and were also used in national training programmes for agricultural extension staff. At the international level, CCCEP has highlighted the lack of channels for research to feed into the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD). The UNCCD used to rely on evidence given by a politically-determined Roster of Experts. Appraisals by CCCEP contributed first to the establishment of UNCCD Scientific Conferences for sourcing scientific input for decision-making and, second, to an agreement from UNCCD parties to establish a new science-policy interface. It has led to the inclusion of knowledge management, the economics of land degradation and the science-policy interface in the UNCCD agenda.

Title Climate Change Laws of the World 
Description Climate change Laws of the World and Climate Change Litigation of the World build on several years of data collection by both the CCCEP in London and the Sabin Center, including the collaboration of CCCEP with GLOBE International on a series of Climate Legislation Studies. Climate Change Laws of the World covers national-level climate change legislation and policies in 164 countries. They include the world's 50 largest greenhouse gas emitters and 93 of the top 100 emitters. Together they account for nearly 95 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions. The database covers climate and climate-related laws, which reflects the relevance of climate policy in areas including energy, transport, land use, and climate resilience. Climate Change Litigation of the World features climate litigation cases from 25 countries. These cases raise issues of law or fact regarding the science of climate change and/or climate change mitigation and adaptation policies or efforts before an administrative, judicial or other investigatory body. 
Type Of Material Database/Collection of data 
Provided To Others? No  
Impact The Database and the Study synthetising the data are regularly used by researchers, policy-makers and legislators from around the world. There have been many examples of parliamentarians learning from, and being inspired by, each other through forums such as GLOBE and the Inter-Parliamentary Union. We have received evidence from China's NDRC that the study has helped to inform the development of China's draft climate change law. This report was launched at the UN in Bonn. Christiana Figueres, former executive secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), who was a champion of the project, gave a keynote speech at the event. A number of parliamentarians also participated in the event. The results were also presented to senior officials from the Chinese government, to legislators from around the world at the Inter-Parliamentary Union Annual Forum and at a side-event during COP21 in Paris.

Title International and sectoral variation in energy prices 1995-2011: how does it relate to emissions policy stringency? (Sato, Lovo, Dussaux) 
Description This project constructs a dataset of industrial energy prices indices for 48 countries for the period 1995 to 2011. This is done both at the country level and at the sector level, covering 12 industry sectors. This dataset is made available for download publicly on this website. Original data are provided by the International Energy Agency, as well as other sources. The procedures used to construct the dataset including the methodology developed to reduce missing data-points, are documented in the accompanying working paper, as are the full set of original data sources. Two industrial energy price measures have been developed: the Variable Weights Energy Price Level (VEPL) and the Fixed Weights Energy Price Index (FEPI). The VEPL is useful for cross-sectional analysis and descriptive statistics, whereas the FEPI is useful for time-series and panel analysis.

The first one was to accompany the launch of new OECD report 'Do environmental policies affect global value chains? A new perspective on the pollution haven hypothesis' which examines how environmental regulations have affected international trade patterns over 15 years and provides insights on how stricter environmental laws would affect future trade. Antoine Dechezlepretre, Associate Professorial Research Fellow at the LSE, presented research at the event on the impact of environmental regulations on innovation and growth. Assistant Professorial Research Fellow, Misato Sato, also participated in the event. The event was introduced and chaired by Lord Stern of Brentford. The second one was on "Low-carbon competitive advantage - what we know and need to know?". The aim of the event was to gather information from a round table of experts that would inform the research strategies of both partners. The event was chaired jointly by CCCEP Deputy Director, Sam Fankhauser and OECD Chief Economist, Catherine Mann. Representatives from the following organisations participated: Department of Energy and Climate Change University College London Imperial College Climate KIC Carbon Trust EDF Energy Imperial College Committee on Climate Change Foreign and Commonwealth Office Statkraft Department for Business, Innovation and Skills Permanent Mission of the Federal Republic of Germany to the OECD European Commission, DG Energy U.S. Embassy London OECD Economics, Trade and Environment teams.

Form Of Engagement Activity Participation in an activity, workshop or similar
Part Of Official Scheme? No
Geographic Reach International
Primary Audience Policymakers/politicians
Results and Impact The debate on whether to privilege economic growth over ecological security is passé. Environmental considerations must be at the heart of economic growth, especially for a country of 1.25 billion people destined to add another 400 million by the middle of the century. Jairam Ramesh's new book Green Signals: Ecology, Growth, and Democracy in India chronicles the '1991 moment' in India's environmental decision-making, telling the story of how, for the first time, the doors of the environment ministry were opened to voices, hitherto unheard, into the policy-making process. It details efforts to change the way environment is viewed both by proponents of environmental security and those who prize economic growth at all costs.

Told from the perspective of a pivotal decision maker, the book addresses the challenges involved in trying to ensure economic growth with ecological security. It takes us through India's coming of age in the global environmental and climate change community to take on a leadership role that is progressive, proactive, and steeped in national interest. Using speaking orders on high-profile projects, notes and letters to the Prime Minister, ministerial colleagues, chief ministers and others, Jairam Ramesh gives an insight into the debates, struggles, challenges, and obstacles to bringing environmental considerations into the mainstream of political and economic decision-making.

Results and Impact A varied audience of about 90 members of the public, along with staff, students and practitioners, attended this ESRC Festival Event: 'Streaming: Getting the social in flood policy'

It brought together civic, business, environmental and policy interests for an evening to learn about flood risk, to hear about social science flood risk management research and to listen to stories from the flood affected. The event was planned around participatory activities tocreate a two-way exchange with the audience. Researchers from the University of Leeds facilitated "live" learning through instant polling.

Streaming also provided an opportunity for our expert panel to contribute their reflections on the winter 2015/16 flooding in the region and their perspective on how we can be more resilient to and better prepared for future floods. Following a Q and A, panel members and researchers continued the discussion with audience members over a reception in the foyer.

The event was filmed and the video is available for those who couldn't attend.

All audience members were subsequently invited to take part in an online survey about attitudes to natural flood risk management. This will feed directly into research by our colleagues.

Description Energy Transitions and the Industrial Revolution 
Form Of Engagement Activity Participation in an activity, workshop or similar
Part Of Official Scheme? No
Geographic Reach National
Primary Audience Policymakers/politicians
Results and Impact Energy transitions involve both changes in the price and availability of energy sources and biased technological change that acts to integrate the new energy carriers into production systems and improve the productivity with which they are used. Professor David Stern will present empirical research on modelling the transition from traditional energy carriers to coal in Sweden using an exogenous biased technical change model and a simulation model of the Industrial Revolution in Britain using endogenous directed technical change model.

Both expansion in the use of coal and coal-augmenting technological change were critical in accelerating the rate of economic growth in Sweden in the 19th and early 20th Centuries, though over time, labour-augmenting technological change has played an increasingly dominant role in the growth process.

Professor Stern will also show how in Britain the rising price of wood relative to coal could foster the development of new types of coal-using machines, which were necessary to expand the use of coal to new applications. The predictions of the directed technical change model will be assessed against the available data and implications for the current and future energy transition discussed.

The Homeward Bound vision over the next ten years is to equip a 1,000-strong global collaboration of women with a science background to lead, influence and contribute to policy and decision-making as it informs the future of our planet. Reflecting on my experience as part of the first Homeward Bound expedition- the world's largest all-female multidisciplinary expedition to Antarctica, involving 76 women from all over the world- I provide insights into why women in science matter when it comes sustainability leadership and outline the next steps in the journey that lies ahead.

The event was filmed so that those who couldn't attend were able to see the presentation. Lindsay was also interviewed on the Paul Hudson Weather Show, in advance of her trip, a programme which has an audience of many thousands from across the Yorkshire and Humber region.

It is hoped that these engagement activities will inspire other young female scientists to apply for the 2017 Homeward Bound expedition and positively influence attitudes to women in science.

Primary Audience Postgraduate students
Results and Impact Staff and students attended this joint talk by Canadian academics, Dr Lea Berrang Ford and Dr James Ford. In the talk, they reflected on the experience of two of their projects - the Indigenous Health Adaptation to Climate Change Project, and the Adaptation Tracking Collaborative - arguing that methodological diversity is central for advancing understanding of vulnerability and adaptation. Their theme is that interdisciplinarity alone does not guarantee impact but must be accompanied by a working 'architecture' for collective impact including team building, identification of common goals and meaningful engagement of knowledge users.

The Fords have since been offered academic positions with the University of Leeds and will take up posts in 2017.

The workshop aimed to examine the propositions and questions from an interdisciplinary perspective, based on short commentaries and submissions from a few leading thinkers -
"The scientific community has relied heavily on quantitative assessments to capture and understand uncertainty. But does the focus on models, diagrams, regressions and future scenarios factor in the lived realities of local people (poor or rich, women and men, urban or rural especially in the global South)? Theorizing about uncertainty from 'above' by experts may have little to do with how many people live with, understand and cope with uncertainty in everyday settings from 'below'."
