The Doha climate talks in December 2012, wrapped up lines of negotiation that were begun years before in Bali. Negotiators resolved contentious questions about the future of the Kyoto Protocol and finally put the constraints of the Bali agenda behind them. Now they need turn...
By acknowledging that the hallmark of future climate change effects is uncertainty, rather than readily identifiable and deterministic outcomes, it is possible to formulate coherent policy approaches.
Economists were able to formulate and recommend policy approaches for reducing emissions of greenhouse gases (mitigation) by...
This paper applies a multi-sector dynamic computable general equilibrium model to estimate the impacts of the carbon-based border tax adjustments implemented by US and EU on China’s sectoral carbon emissions.
Given the urgency and the magnitude of emission cuts required to arrest the global temperature rise at an acceptable level (like 2 degrees Celsius), it is imperative that action to mitigate climate change is taken at the lowest cost.
This can be done if...
This paper documents an energy ladder that nations ascend as their per capita incomes increase.
On average, economic development results in an overall substitution from the use of biomass to fulfill energy needs to energy sourced from fossil fuels, and then toward nuclear power...
This paper recommends specific actions that need to be taken internationally as well as domestically in order to effectively control the embedded CO2 emissions in China’s trade.
China’s capital-intensive, export-oriented, spectacular economic growth since launching its open-door policy and economic reforms in late 1978...
This paper analyses the impact of international carbon control measures – and the absence of such measures – on Australian carbon pricing policies at both a theoretical and empirical level.
While theory and interest group advocacy suggest a potential case for destination accounting of...
Countries with low marginal costs of abating carbon emissions may have high total costs, and vice versa, for a given climate mitigation policy.
This may help to explain different countries' policy stances on climate mitigation. We hypothesize that, under a common percentage cut in...
Private equity investment in technologies which deliver low carbon energy has grown as an area of both economic and social performance. This article offers a perspective on some of the challenges in the industry.
It relies on case studies drawn from thirty five interviews...
This paper argues the importance for Indonesia to start developing strategies to mitigate its emissions from fossil fuel combustion.
Indonesia is among the largest 25 carbon dioxide emitting countries when considering only fossil fuels, and among the top three or five when emissions due...
