An Economist’s Perspective on Climate Change and Global Inequality with Professor Galina Hale

April 10, 2023 @ 6:30 pm 8:00 pm

Climate change is a global problem and solving it requires a global effort. Some possible climate solutions are consistent with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) established by the UN, while other solutions may be at odds with these goals. This lecture will discuss ways of thinking about different climate solutions in the context of global inequality and SDGs. The lecture will also discuss climate-related risks faced by the financial sector and how private investors may be incentivized to invest in climate change mitigation and adaptation.

Galina Hale is a Professor of Economics at UC Santa Cruz. She served as a Research Advisor at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, and as an assistant professor of economics at Yale University. Galina’s current research interests focus on attracting mainstream finance to climate solutions, the sustainability of the global food system, and international financial stability, especially with respect to climate risks. Galina has published over 30 articles in leading economics and finance peer-reviewed journals. She serves on multiple editorial boards and presents her work regularly at scholarly and policy meetings worldwide.

This is a virtual UCSC Slugs & Steins event.
