Border Carbon Adjustments: A Renewed Role after Paris?


As we transition towards a more fragmented, domestically driven climate policy architecture under the Paris Agreement, in which some actors have pledged to significantly increase their climate ambition, has the time arrived for a more informed debate about border carbon adjustments?

This event will offer a timely opportunity to discuss the evolving rationale of border carbon adjustments in the evolving climate regime, and to facilitate critical thinking about legal, political and economic constraints and their attendant design implications. It will convene researchers, policy makers, and other stakeholders selected for their prior work and relevant experience. You can find the agenda in the download box.
