Felix Pretis' research cited in UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) special report

The latest UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) special report extensively cites Felix Pretis' recent paper on the economic impacts of climate change.

The IPCC is the main international body for climate research and it is very exciting for Felix's research to have made it into the report, both in the chapter on impacts of climate change, as well as in the chapter on sustainable development and inequality. The results on the economic impacts are also mentioned in the summary for policy makers which are the primary international policy recommendations from the UN's IPCC.

A couple inclusions of Felix's research are below:

Ch. 3, IPCC report: "Growth-rate projections based on temperature impacts alone indicate robust negative impacts on GDP per capita growth for SIDS (Pretis et al., 2018)"

Ch. 5, IPCC report: "The overall projected socio-economic losses compared to present day are less at 1.5°C (8% loss of gross domestic product per capita) compared to 2°C (13%), with lower-income countries projected to experience greater losses, which may increase economic inequality between countries (Pretis et al., 2018)."
