No Brainers and Low-Hanging Fruit in National Climate Policy
Countries worldwide have pledged to combat climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, yet real concerns exist that targets will not be met and aspirations for the 2015 Paris agreement will fall short. In order to guarantee that world climate goals are achieved, and that the world economy thus reaches net zero emissions of greenhouse gases, effective and feasible policies must be implemented post haste. This eBook, with contributions from economists working in more than 18 countries, provides timely and concise recommendations on achievable and efficient climate change policies that can be fast-tracked into implementation. Authors discuss which policies will have the fastest and/or largest cumulative impact, which strategies are the most technically or financially feasible, and which are least likely to hit political-economy obstacles to their implementation.
