IJTAF Call for Papers on Impacts of Climate Change on Economics, Finance, and Insurance

The International Journal of Theoretical and Applied Finance (IJTAF) is calling for papers for a Special Issue on the Impacts of Climate Change on Economics, Finance, and Insurance. This call follows a workshop held in September 2022 in which Gaël Giraud, Director of the Georgetown Environmental Justice Program, participated. Matheus Grasselli, from McMaster University and collaborator of the GEJP, was part of the Organizing Committee.

Here is the description of the Call for Papers:

“Climate change is a pre-eminent risk facing humanity in the 21st century, with ongoing and potential impacts on all aspects of human life. This issue will be based on a workshop held at the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences on September 19-23, 2022. The event brought together leading experts from the academic community, policy makers, and the financial and insurance industries to discuss mathematical modelling of climate risk, as well as the consequences of climate change for financial markets, insurance, and the broader economy. Topics addressed included mathematical models for pricing climate derivatives, hedging climate risk, the impact of climate risk on new and traditional forms of insurance, and the long-term economic consequences of climate change.”

The deadline for submissions is February 28th, 2023.
