IIASA researcher Roman Hoffmann is invited to talk in a seminar organized by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in Paris, France.

This workshop is the third of six workshops in the EC-OECD series called "Place-based Policies for the Future". The series of six workshops will consider place-based policies from the following angles: synergies with sectoral investment and fiscal equalization policies; addressing current and future societal problems; policy design, measurement and evaluation; governance and coordination; place-based policies for the future.The outcomes of the workshops will underpin an OECD summary report and form the basis for a broader discussion with stakeholders on the future direction of place-based policies. As such, the work will be relevant for policy-makers at all levels of government interested in improving the design and implementation of regional policies that contribute to equitable and sustainable economic futures.

Roman Hoffmann, leader of the Migration and Sustainable Development (MIG) Research Group in the Population and Just Societies (POPJUS) Program is invited to attend a panel to share his insights on understanding regional differences in public support for climate action.

Dr. Hoffmann's research focuses on various issues related to the impacts of climate change on human livelihoods, migration, and health and well-being. He is also interested in factors that influence climate change mitigation and sustainability, including drivers of environmental concern, pro-environmental behaviors, and support for climate action.
