Carbon Pricing, Technology Investment, and Trade: Integrating Design Elements for a Low Carbon Club
The Stanley Center, in collaboration with Climate Strategies, IDDRI, and ICTSD, will host a half-day workshop and discussion “Carbon Pricing, Technology Investment, and Trade: Integrating Design Elements for a Low Carbon Club” to be held in Paris on 8 July 2015.
Over the past few years, the concept of “climate clubs” has emerged and matured in several expert-driven processes. The idea is that multilateral negotiations can be complemented with coalitions of the willing on various climate-related issue areas, in particular, where there is a need for a high degree of policy coordination. Among the areas which have been identified as suitable for carbon clubs are carbon pricing or technology.
Within the multilateral process, Workstream 2 explores opportunities for cooperative initiatives to accelerate action on climate change. This workshop aims to examine and further develop the proposition of nurturing a “club” of enhanced ambition based around the interrelationship of pricing, technology investment, and trade. We intend to inform policymaking toward a Paris agreement at COP 21, but also mainly in the implementation phase.
