The ESRC Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy and the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment will be holding an international meeting in London on 28 October 2016 to mark the 10th anniversary of the publication of ‘The Economics of Climate Change: The Stern Review’.

It will take stock of the extraordinary changes taking place in the global economy and seek to guide the research and policy that will deliver the global agenda created by the Paris Agreement (December 2015) and Sustainable Development Goals (September 2015).
