Short- and Long-Term Impacts of Climate Extremes (SLICE)


Project outline

In the SLICE project, we aimed to gain a deep understanding of the channels through which climate extremes such as fluvial floods, tropical cyclones, and droughts impact socioeconomic development in the short- and long-term. Socioeconomic impacts were assessed on the household level for several focus countries as well as globally on the macroeconomic level in the present climate as well as for different climate and socioeconomic futures. This allowed us to estimate climate impacts that may be avoided by stringent emission reductions. Please feel invited to check out the new synthesis report!

Project partners

The SLICE consortium is a joint project of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (Potsdam), Climate Analytics (Berlin), and the Ifo Institute for Economic Research (Munich). It is coordinated by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research.

Dialogue on the Economics of Climate Change

SLICE is among the projects sponsored by the BMBF funding measure Economics of Climate Change II that aims to provide solution-oriented knowledge in the field of climate economics. The funding measure is supported by the Dialogue on the Economics of Climate Change.
