EU Sources - Impact of Paris climate agreement on employment - February 28, 2019

Eurofound published a report that analyses the potential employment and economic impacts of the Paris climate agreement across sectors and occupations in the European union. The analysis is carried out using the E3ME macro-econometric model which provides information on sectoral impacts, together with the Warwick Labour Market Extension model for occupational analysis. Further analysis of the employment developments in Europe are undertaken using Eurofound’s European Jobs Monitor.
