Professor Lord Nicholas Stern, Chair of the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment and the ESRC Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy is to be awarded the Bernhard Harms Prize on Saturday 4 September 2021. The award is in recognition of his pioneering work on the economic costs of climate change.

In advance of the award presentation Kiel Institute President Gabriel Felbermayr said “It is not least thanks to his work that efficient economic incentives such as CO2 pricing are playing an increasingly important role in today’s political debate on effective measures to limit CO2 emissions.“

The Bernhard Harms Prize of the Kiel Institute for the World Economy has been awarded every two years since 1964 and annually since 2020. The award honours academics for exceptional research in global economics or practitioners for outstanding promotion of global economic relations.

A livestream of the award presentation will be available here. The event will start at 1.30pm German/CEST time (12.30pm UK time) and will include a lecture by Lord Stern at 2.45pm 1.45 (UK time).
