Climate scenarios: Oxford Economics’ methodological approach explained

Topic: Following the launch of Oxford Economics’ new Global Climate Service we look forward to walking you through the methodological approach to our climate scenarios in detail. Our bespoke scenarios are modelled using new climate policy levers on the Global Economic Model (GEM). The GEM stimulates a connection across three key factors: the climate, the energy system and the global macroeconomy. The model’s enhanced framework draws on our econometric analysis of the climate damage function – a relationship between temperature and productivity – and our latest research on the economic impact of carbon pricing.

Please note that we will be holding one webinar each for EMEA, Americas and APAC friendly time zones:

  • EMEA – Tuesday 9th November| 10:00 GMT
  • Americas – Tuesday 9th November | 16:00 EST
  • APAC – Tuesday 9th November | 10:00 HKT

Is sterling in the midst of a sell-off or a full-blown crisis?

Policy announcements are coming thick and fast in the UK at the moment and have been greeted with the most significant sell-off in UK assets in decades. Is this a case of markets overreacting or have the UK public finances been put on an unsustainable footing? Will the Bank of England react to the fall in sterling or are markets setting themselves up to be disappointed? We will set out our views on all these topics and set out the conditions under which we think this volatility will subside.

Pre-emptive debt restructuring: a viable scenario for fragile African sovereigns?

The expiry of Covid-19-related support coupled with a surge in the goods import bill has exacerbated pressure on external trade positions for various African sovereigns. We see headwinds intensifying from 2023 onwards in the form of a deepening drought in East Africa, populist-leaning policies aimed at appeasing voter frustrations, large redemptions of external public debt facilities, and moral hazard. The risk profile is fragmented but a common thread can be found across Africa: sovereigns face an uphill battle in meeting the projected external funding requirements. With the risks of disorderly default on the rise and informed by the Zambian blueprint, we investigate the case for pre-emptive debt restructuring for fiscally fragile nations including Egypt, Ghana, and Kenya.
