The climate consistency goal and the transformation of global finance

In this article, we build on four methods to show that Art. 2.1(c) of the Paris Agreement comprises a new meaning of ‘finance’ under the United Nations negotiations. Implementation of Art. 2.1(c) requires engagement by governments and non-state actors, including the financial sector. 

Heterogenous effects of rural electrification on child labor in Nigeria

This paper investigate in particular how child labor varies depending on the nature of electricity supply and the electrical appliances used in the household. We find that the employment probability of children from electrified households is lower than that of children living in non-electrified households only when the household combines grid access and a generator as sources of electricity.

An assessment of the European regulation on battery recycling for electric vehicles

This paper investigates the design of a recent regulatory proposal aimed at favoring the emergence of a
battery recycling industry in Europe. It develops a material flow model that projects battery wastes and their recycling potential. Our findings indicate that the feasibility of the European Commission proposed thresholds is not very sensitive to changes of material intensities from battery technology shifts, recycling efficiencies, or the faster uptake of demand.

La responsabilité sociétale des banques centrales

Nous nous attachons dans cet article à décrypter les forces à l'œuvre dans la déconstruction du mythe d'une banque centrale uniquement dédiée à la préservation de la valeur de la monnaie et déconnectée des grands enjeux et débats sociétaux. Nous développons l'idée que depuis la crise financière, les banques centrales réencastrent de leur politique dans la vie de la cité.

Côte d’Ivoire’s electricity challenge in 2050: Reconciling economic development and climate commitments

In closing its economic gap with emerging markets, Côte d’Ivoire will face a substantial increase in electricity demand over the next three decades. This paper develops a forward-looking tool to explore electricity technology investment paths compatible with both rapidly increasing electricity demand and the Paris Agreement.

Deepening the territorial Life Cycle Assessment approach with partial equilibrium modelling: First insights from an application to a wood energy incentive in a French region

An innovative modelling framework and metrics are developed to assess the economic and environmental performances of regional incentives in the wood energy sector. Our approach is based on the coupling between a partial equilibrium economic model of the forest sector with Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). Its originality relies on the computation of regional eco-efficiency ratios while taking account of diverse direct and indirect spatial and market interactions.
