Event Summary:

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.

    Carbon pricing revenues: their role in financing the climate transition

    Last month, the Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC, Simon Stiell, stressed how important this and next year are for the achievement of the Paris Agreement and called for “a quantum leap in climate finance” ahead of the Spring Meetings of the World Bank Group and International Monetary Fund. Indeed, with emissions required to peak before 2025, our window of opportunity is rapidly closing to keep 1.5°C within reach. More and better finance is urgently needed. Carbon pricing policies and their revenues are part of the tools available that can help fill the climate finance gap.

    Maximising benefits of carbon pricing through carbon revenue use: A review of international experiences

    Carbon pricing policies and their revenues are part of the tools available that can help fill the climate finance gap. With raising revenues from carbon taxes and emission trading systems (ETSs) that have tripled since the Paris Agreement, and an upward trend that could continue in the medium-term, ‘how to use carbon revenues’ has become a crucial question. This report, prepared as an activity of the EU-funded European Union Climate Dialogues (EUCDs) project, aims to inform policymakers and practitioners on lessons learned and ways forward on the use of carbon revenues, with a comprehensive approach based on a review of international experiences.
