In this week’s episode, Aurora’s Research Director Richard Howard discusses Green Stimulus with Cameron Hepburn, Professor of Environmental Economics and Director, Smith School, University of Oxford.
As countries emerge from the Coronavirus lockdown and take stock of the severe economic impact they’ve seen, the focus is now on how to reboot the economy with significant stimulus packages of economic measures. Cameron and his team have been researching the Green Stimulus, reviewing policies from around the world and the best measures to pursue from both the perspective of rebooting the economy and reducing emissions.
Richard and Cameron discuss:
- Impacts of the pandemic across countries and industries, on emissions and wider environmental indicators
- How we respond to the pandemic and what the recovery packages will contain
- The best policies the UK Government should pursue
