Paying for It: The Costs of Inaction

Policymakers and researchers are working to better understand how climate change will affect key sectors of the economy, how we can best adapt to these impacts, and how to communicate the economic urgency of the crisis. At the Institute for Policy Integrity’s annual conference, experts and policymakers from around the country will discuss how we can better estimate, prepare for, and communicate the high cost of inaction.

The event will consist of three panel discussions. Breaks between each segment (as well as event-provided lunch) will give attendees time to meet and talk to one another. We look forward to having a diverse audience of academics and students across law and economics, environmental activists, and industry professionals. Our event will be of interest to anyone who wants to learn more about climate change response and communication.

We are a non-partisan think tank housed at the NYU School of Law that is dedicated to improving the quality of governmental decision-making. We produce original scholarly research in the fields of economics, law, and regulatory policy. Much of our work centers around how we can contextualize climate damages and help policymakers weigh those costs. 

This event is part of the Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Change program of Climate Week NYC.
