Fourth CEPR/EAERE Webinar on Climate Policy: Carbon Pricing
Carbon pricing is useful to induce all GHG emitters to internalize the climate damages associated to their emissions. But even in countries without a market pricing mechanism, it is important to value carbon in order to perform the socio-economic evaluation of the myriad of climate policies that will have to be implemented to attain their emission target. During this webinar, three panelists will summarize their findings about what carbon price/value should be recommended, or about the rate at which this carbon value should grow over time. The panelists will also identify the sources of uncertainty and of scientific disagreement surrounding this economic approach to fighting climate change.
Join us on Thursday September 30, 2021 from 5:00 to 6:30pm CEST to hear presentations from:
