18 September 2017 - Blog post - By : Benoît LEGUET / Sébastien POSTIC, Phd

At the invitation of the Ministry of the Environment and its Secretariat for Sustainable Development and supported by the Partnership of Market Readiness of the World Bank , I4CE assists representatives of different ministries and economic sectors to understand the implementation of carbon pricing policies in Morocco with the aim at achieving their climate targets set in their Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) defined for the Paris Agreement.

Organized from 13 to 15 September in Rabat, the training workshop aims at providing a common understanding of the implications of the Paris Agreement for their country and to address all the issues raised by its implementation and the specific challenges of carbon pricing. I4CE has presented different approaches and instruments, such as carbon taxes, market mechanisms such as emissions trading systems, and offsets.

Agenda :

  • Session 1 – Climate Ambition and Carbon Pricing: Implications of the Paris Accord
  • Session 2 – Understanding the Fundamentals of Carbon Pricing
  • Session 3 – Simulation of a carbon price in the electricity sector
  • Sessions 4, 5 and 6 – The various carbon pricing instruments: the emission trading system, carbon tax and carbon offsetting project mechanisms.

    Net Zero Industry Act: Europe in the race for cleantech

    The European Union still has a lot of work to do.
