New Climate Economy (NCE)

The Global Commission on the Economy and Climate is a major international initiative to examine how countries can achieve economic growth while dealing with the risks posed by climate change. The Commission comprises former heads of government and finance ministers and leaders in the fields of economics and business, and was commissioned by seven countries – Colombia, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Norway, South Korea, Sweden and the United Kingdom – as an independent initiative to report to the international community.

The New Climate Economy (NCE) is the Commission’s flagship project. It provides independent and authoritative evidence on the relationship between actions which can strengthen economic performance and those which reduce the risk of dangerous climate change.

The NCE project is undertaken by a global partnership of research institutesand a core team led by Programme Director Helen Mountford. We are working with a number of other institutions in various aspects of the research programme, including the World Bank and regional development banks, the International Monetary Fund, International Energy Agency, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, United Nations agencies and a variety of other research institutes around the world.

The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) provides research-based policy solutions to sustainably reduce poverty and end hunger and malnutrition in developing countries. Established in 1975, IFPRI currently has more than 600 employees working in over 50 countries. It is a research center of CGIAR, a worldwide partnership engaged in agricultural research for development. EDRI and IFPRI has set up a collaborative program called the “the Ethiopia Strategy Support Program (ESSP)”. ESSP is set up to conduct policy relevant research and analysis. EDRI and ESSP have collaborated on several projects including, but not limited to studies on, “the Ethiopian Tax System”, “the Inter-Sectoral Linkages of Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP)”, “from Integrated Value Chain to Cluster Development of the Cotton Sub-sector: Analysis of Rural Handlooms”, “Urban food retailing and food prices” and “Econometric Analysis of the Consumption, Saving and Investment Behaviors of Successful Farmers. “

The National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies (GRIPS) is an international premier institute that offers Masters and PhD courses in different disciplines. Founded in 1997 as a stand-alone graduate institute, GRIPS is comprised of world-class academics and distinguished practitioners with expertise in public sector policy formulation and management. EDRI and GRIPS have collaborated on a range of research projects including, but not limited to, “Research on Poverty Environment and agricultural technologies (RePEAT)”, Metalworking industry study (five rounds of surveys in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012), impact of management skills on leather shoes producers (two rounds of surveys in 2008 and 2009), tannery enterprise survey, survey of small tailors and garment factories (two rounds of surveys in 2007 and 2009) and the cut flower survey (three rounds of surveys in 2007, 2011 and 2013).
