Research area 2: Financial sector and inequality in the context of ecological transformation
Financial sector and inequality in the context of ecological transformation
- Climate change-related natural disasters hit the Global South particularly hard

- Cost and risk sharing between creditors and debtors
- New models of financial support in the run-up to disasters
- Determinants of willingness to invest and donate in the Global North
- Distributional effects of standards and criteria for sustainable financial products
Possible research questions
- Global climate finance: What incentives determine the provision of development cooperation funds, private donations, and private investments?
- Effects of EU standards and criteria for sustainable financial products on access to financing for SMEs?
- Are globally financed climate protection programs effective in reaching the most vulnerable population groups in the recipient countries?
