I4CE becomes a North/South think-tank on climate economics
Marrakech, COP22, November 16 2016 – We are proud to announce that Caisse de Dépôt et Gestion du Maroc will be joining our founding members, Caisse des Dépôts Group, the Agence Française de Développement (AFD) and the ADEME, French Environment and Energy Management Agency, to support the governance and financing of I4CE – Institute for Climate Economics.
I4CE is a think tank dedicated to the economics of climate change, and benefits from a strong North-South knowledge base to facilitate the deployment of international development strategies.
I4CE is led by Benoît Leguet and chaired by Pierre Ducret, climate adviser to the Caisse des Dépôts Group.
I4CE provides its sponsors with its expertise based on the research, analysis and assessment of four key areas of climate economy: energy policy and carbon pricing; cities and infrastructure; agriculture and forestry; finance and investment. As a local organisation dealing with international issues, I4CE leverages its relationships within an international community of experts to deliver contemporary, well developed information on climate and energy policies.
I4CE is set to heighten its international status thanks to the participation of our new Moroccan sponsor. This new venture will further I4CE’s collaboration with academic and research institutions in Morocco and pave the way for the dissemination of its expertise in knowledge production, public policy, capacity building and other key climate issues, not only in Morocco but also across the African continent.
