Climate change is expected to have broad-reaching impacts on infrastructure, human health, and natural resources in Canada. The Canadian Climate Institute (CCI) has worked to quantify these impacts across almost two dozen impact areas, producing sectoral estimates of climate change impacts in a variety of formats and magnitudes. Here we present our technical report summarizing the approach used to integrate all these costs and benefits into a single macroeconomic model. Results of this analysis were used in the CCI’s report Damage Control: Reducing the costs of climate impacts in Canada.
This study, published in the September 2021 issue of Energy Policy journal, explores the potential role of road pricing in achieving deep greenhouse gas mitigation targets, including cordon zones, fuel taxes, VKT fees, and ZEV zones.
