The impact of policies to address climate change cannot be discussed only in national terms. Cities and regions will face different growth trajectories under alternative scenarios, reflecting their unique sectoral composition, inter-regional dependencies, and vulnerability to extreme weather events. Oxford Economics’ City Climate Scenarios Service offers in-depth insights into the economic impacts of climate change and mitigation policies on cities and local economies throughout Europe, the US and Canada.
About the City Climate Scenarios
Baseline forecasts and five climate scenarios to 2050 for almost 3,000 cities and regions
Commentary and webinars
Event-driven discussions on cities and climate change.
Individual quarterly chartbooks for the US, Canada and Europe, outlining the key assumptions and headlines for each climate scenario.
Support from our team of over 40 city and climate specialists.
Why Oxford Economics?
Oxford Economics provides the only commercially available service that applies climate scenarios for cities and local economies across Europe, the US and Canada.
Extensive location coverage
Europe: all NUTS1, NUTS2 and NUTS3 regions in 25 countries, covering approximately 2,400 locations.
United States: all states, metropolitan statistical areas, and metropolitan divisions.
Canada: all provinces and census metropolitan areas.
Our in-depth knowledge of the unique sectoral composition, inter-regional dependencies, and vulnerability to extreme weather events for each city and region enables us to provide forecasts and analysis that demonstrate the potential economic impacts of climate policies and physical events on cities and local economies.
Novel geospatial modelling
Through our consulting service, we are able to assist our clients to assess the potential economic disruption from climatic events, by combining natural vulnerability, such as exposure to flooding, with hyperlocal estimates of economic activity in vulnerable areas.

“We wanted to bring our climate assumptions and scenarios more in line with those used by central banks in their climate stress test analysis, so we have worked with Oxford Economics to apply their climate macro model to our productivity, GDP and inflation forecasts.
Oxford Economics has always been available to respond to our queries and provided insightful explanations for the impact of carbon pricing on macroeconomic activity in their model. We are very satisfied with their rigorous approach in modelling climate change and are happy to have collaborated with them.”
