Helath risk valuation and global warming

Project Number: 221

Project Leader: Gunnar Lindberg

Start Date: 2011-09-01

End Date: 2012-06-30

Research Question Economists have good knowledge on the valuation of traffic-related mortality and morbidity risks, considering the extensive literature on this topic. However, there is little research on valuation of environmental health risks due to landslides, worsened air quality and the like. The aim of this study is to elicit individual preferences for risks with the aim to discuss relevant values for negative health consequences of global warming.
