Lord Nicholas Stern’s visit to Ecuador

March 14, 2012

According to the Foreign Office’s website in Ecuador:

The author of the Stern Review on the Economics of Climate Change will visit Ecuador at the end of this month.

The Stern Review, published in 2006, has a particular significance, as it is the first climate change report commissioned by a government to an economist instead of a climatologist.  Its author, Economist Nicholas Stern, pioneer in the field of the economics of climate change and the quantification of its impacts, will visit Ecuador to analyse the costs of inaction and the challenges related to the mitigation of climate change and the sustainable development of the region.

The visit is being organised by the British Embassy in Quito and the Ecuadorean Ministry of the Environment, with the support of the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN), Fundación Futuro Latinoamericano (FFLA), FUNDAR Galápagos, Conservation International (CI), World Wildlife Foundation (WWF), and the Charles Darwin Foundation.
