Date: November 16th
The recent decade saw an unprecedented and ongoing growth in national und subnational carbon pricing initiatives around the world. The most exciting developments are currently taking place in emerging economies and developing countries in Asia and Latin America.
Carbon pricing policies significantly reduce the cost of addressing climate change and unlock economic opportunities as part of the transition to a low-carbon economy. In addition, the generation of revenues which can be used to mainstream climate change into public policies to support the low-carbon and climate-resilient.
This side event will bring together academics, policymakers and stakeholders to discuss prospects and challenges for carbon pricing in the context of the Paris Agreement and Agenda 2030. It will also confront academic research results on the potential of carbon pricing as a source of revenue with real-world experiences in using carbon pricing in emerging and developing countries.
