ZEW policy brief - No. 5, 2015: The Road to Paris: Towards a Fair and Effective Climate Agreement?

Coordinated emission reductions through the linking of different emission trading systems reduce the price tag of global climate policy goals. Funding from industrialised countries for adaptation measures in developing countries - a potentially important part of a fair and effective global climate agreement - can be driven by the funders? own self-interest and motivated by international trade.
