Efficiency and Equity of Climate Change Policy
Springer Science & Business Media, Jun 30, 2000 - Business & Economics - 369 pages
Efficiency and Equity of Climate Change Policy is a comprehensive assessment of the economic effects of climate change policy, addressing the issues with a quantitative modelling approach. The book thus goes beyond the usual statements on the efficiency of economic instruments to identify the way gains and losses are distributed; who gains and who loses. Both the costs and benefits of climate change policies are analyzed. Most papers also provide useful information on the economic features of the Kyoto Protocol, its possible extensions, and the effect of different implementation strategies (such as the debate on emissions trading ceilings).
Readership: Scientists and policy makers, students and specialists in climate related industries, members of NGOs, and policy advisors.
