Onno Kuik is a senior economist with more than 25 years of experience in the environmental economics domain. His main field of expertise is the use of computable general equilibrium (CGE) modelling to assess the economic and environmental impacts of energy and climate change mitigation and adaptation policies. Examples include the assessment of mitigation policies under the Kyoto Protocol and REDD (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation), with a focus on ‘leakage’ of carbon emissions from regulated to non-regulated countries, the economic consequences of climate change impacts on agriculture, and and fresh water resources in Europe and Africa. Over the years, Onno has worked in numerous research projects for the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the European Commission, the European Environment Agency, the Dutch Parliament, the European Parliament, and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), in Europe and abroad. His current research focuses on the economics of adaptation in Europe. He coordinates the work package on the international context of future EU climate change mitigation policies in the EU FP7 project CECILIA205.
