Session of the German Data Forum (RatSWD) on "“Climate Economics - data for related research in economics”
Climate (change) induces social, behavioural, and economic challenges. To understand the implications and give reasonable advice, researchers require a quality-assured data basis.
The research data centres (RDCs) accredited by the German Data Forum (RatSWD) provide scientists with a multitude of datasets to describe and analyse the social and economic outcomes of climate (change) along several dimensions. The RatSWD-session presents selected datasets that are available at RDCs. The presentations cover a broad range of data (e.g., energy consumption, eco-innovations, or land-use change) and give examples for empirical analyses.
