  1. EU Climate Change Policy

    EU Climate Change Policy

    Edited by Marjan Peeters, Kurt Deketelaere
    EU Climate Change Policy focuses on legal instruments, with emissions trading at the forefront of the policy package, accompanied by directives on energy taxation, energy efficiency and renewable energy. Distinguished authors provide a commentary on each aspect of the policy measures, discussing both theoretical and practical aspects. Overall, it is concluded that whilst EU policy is very ‘green’, it needs to be developed further in a comprehensive and meaningful way. Learn More

  2. Economic Modelling of Climate Change and Energy Policies

    Economic Modelling of Climate Change and Energy Policies

    Edited by Carlos de Miguel, Xavier Labandeira, Baltasar Manzano
    Climate change and energy consumption are at the forefront of current environmental debate. Whilst energy is essential to the functioning and survival of our societies, the environmental impact that energy consumption is having, particularly on climate change, is a growing concern and the design and practicalities of energy and energy-related environmental policies are under constant scrutiny. This innovative new book not only addresses the economic assessment of environmental and energy policies but also discusses the efficiency and distributional consequences these policies have for producers and consumers.

  3. Regional Climate Change and Variability

    Regional Climate Change and Variability

    Edited by Matthias Ruth, Kieran Donaghy, Paul Kirshen
    In its development of methodologies and their applications to individual regions, this book presents a rich set of insights and a set of guides for investment and policymaking. Each of the six studies focuses on a finer geographic scale than is customary in integrated assessment research. They introduce innovations for impact analysis and contribute to the knowledge of localized experiences of climate change – how it affects a variety of sectors, how different stakeholders perceive its implications and adapt to it, and how decision support systems can promote dialogues between researchers, stakeholders and policymakers.

  4. Climate Change, Justice and Future Generations

    Climate Change, Justice and Future Generations

    Edward A. Page
    Global climate change raises important questions of international and intergenerational justice. In this important new book the author places research on the origins and impacts of climate change within the broader context of distributive justice and sustainable development. He argues that a range of theories of distribution – notably those grounded in ideals of equality, priority and sufficiency – converge on the adoption of the ambitious global climate policy framework known as ‘Contraction and Convergence’.

  6. Smart Growth and Climate Change

    Smart Growth and Climate Change

    Edited by Matthias Ruth
    This invaluable book brings together two strands of applied research that to date have only been carried out in isolation from each other – ‘smart growth’ research and research into adaptation to climate change and variability. Both entail similar concerns, draw on complementary modelling tools and are concerned with bridging the gaps that may exist between science and engineering stakeholder interests and policy implementation. By providing theory, models and case studies from North America, Oceania and Europe this books helps to create synergies between the two research strands, reconcile differences and provide insights and possible future direction for decision makers at national and local levels.

  8. Climate Change Economics

    Climate Change Economics

    G. C. van Kooten
    Although the full extent of the potential damages from global warming remain unknown, scientists have long argued that action should be taken now to mitigate any possible adverse consequences. However, in making such policy recommendations, economic arguments need to be considered as much as scientific ones. This volume examines the appropriate economic incentives for implementing policy to mitigate climate change and then exposes the flaws in current international agreements. Learn More

  9. Climate Change in the Mediterranean

    Climate Change in the Mediterranean

    Edited by Carlo Giupponi, Mordechai Shechter
    The book begins with a broad global overview of the probable economic and social consequences of climate change. The authors then focus on the issue of water resources and assess a range of potential problems such as increasing droughts, adequate irrigation, reduced water quality and population migration due to severe shortages. They move on to examine issues surrounding land use including desertification, degradation, agriculture and waste management. Finally, they investigate the coastal zones of the Mediterranean which are economically vulnerable to variations in climate due to their reliance on tourism. The book integrates methodological and empirical issues, provides interdisciplinary analyses of the effects of climate change and explores policy implications for the future. Learn More

  10. Climate Change and the Kyoto Protocol

    Climate Change and the Kyoto Protocol

    Edited by Michael Faure, Joyeeta Gupta, Andries Nentjes
    The Kyoto Protocol was a milestone event in the process of getting global climate change on to the political agenda and taking the first tentative steps towards internationally co-ordinated action. This book brings together researchers from the disciplines of law, economics, political science and sociology to analyse the instruments which have been set up to manage climate change and the institutional shifts that are required for the reduction of greenhouse gases (GHGs).

  11. Issues in International Climate Policy

    Issues in International Climate Policy

    Edited by Ekko C. van Ierland, Joyeeta Gupta, Marcel T.J. Kok
    Climate change is currently at the centre of scientific and political debate, and the need for well-designed international climate policies is widely recognised. Despite this, the complexity of both the climate change problem and the international negotiation process has resulted in a large number of outstanding issues which still require attention. The authors of this book attempt to address and resolve some of the problems which have remained on the climate change agenda, without serious action, for far too long. Learn More

  12. Firms, Governments and Climate Policy

    Firms, Governments and Climate Policy

    Edited by Carlo Carraro, Christian Egenhofer
    This book analyses the policy mixes that provide the best possible incentives for firms and governments to act on climate change and sign up to international climate agreements. In doing so, the authors address a multitude of related issues including the linkages between flexible mechanisms and voluntary agreements; regulation and taxation; the opportunities and barriers of the Kyoto Protocol for industry; and the incentives for firms to undertake climate-related R&D and investments. As well as illustrating the environmental benefits and cost-effectiveness of alternative policy mixes in reducing GHG emissions, the authors also offer sensible policy prescriptions for increasing the numbers of countries that ratify and implement climate agreements.

  13. Global Climate Change

    Global Climate Change

    Edited by James M. Griffin
    This volume is written for policymakers and informed citizenry who want to understand at a general level the complexities of global climate change without becoming enmeshed in technical minutia. The introduction emphasizes the core fact that climate change issues cut across disciplines. William Schlesinger and Gerald North explain the carbon cycle and how increased greenhouse gases impact temperature. The economics papers deal with the applicability of benefit/cost analysis and then proceed to examine the benefits of avoiding temperature change versus the costs of the various CO2 abatement options. Finally, David Victor, a Stanford political scientist, asks which policies are feasible in a world where the incentives differ dramatically among countries. The book closes with open letters to the President of the United States. Learn More

  15. International Climate Policy to Combat Global Warming

    International Climate Policy to Combat Global Warming

    Dirk T.G. Rübbelke
    In their pursuit of policies to combat global warming, countries will find that they may also receive additional benefits which are not directly associated with the primary aim. These ancillary benefits are likely to include, for example, a reduction in pollution as a result of carbon containment policies. International Climate Policy to Combat Global Warming is one of the first books which analyses climate policy, taking account of ancillary as well as primary benefits. Learn More

  16. Instruments for Climate Policy

    Instruments for Climate Policy

    Edited by Johan Albrecht
    Instruments for Climate Policy focuses on economic and political aspects related to the recent proposals and the debate on limits in flexibility, and discusses EU and US perspectives on climate policy instruments and strategies. This is followed by chapters on economic efficiency and the use of flexible instruments as well as contributions to the debate on ‘when flexibility’, on the arguments behind the EU ceilings proposal and on voluntary approaches to climate policy. One of the main conclusions reached with respect to proposals for limiting flexibility is the need to evaluate simultaneously their economic, ecological and international political consequences. The authors include both important policymakers and leading academics in the area. Learn More

  19. Sustainable Forest Management and Global Climate Change

    Sustainable Forest Management and Global Climate Change

    Edited by Mohammed H.I. Dore, Rubén Guevara
    The UN Framework Convention on Climate Change recognises that, in the formulation of a global strategy for reducing global emissions of carbon (the main factor in global warming) forests could play an important role. This book highlights that role and demonstrates how the forests of the world may be harvested judiciously and sustainably. The authors argue that the forests are more than just a source of timber and wood; they discuss the role that forests play in reducing global warming, in preventing soil erosion and in helping to minimise the loss of biodiversity. Drawing on the expertise of contributors associated with the analysis of forests, this book is an in depth and fascinating discussion as well as a policy guide for the sustainable management of forests.

  20. Climate Policy and Development

    Climate Policy and Development

    Edited by Axel Michaelowa, Michael Dutschke
    Two case studies – one on a renewable energy project in Indonesia and another on Costa Rican climate policy – show the problems that are likely to be encountered by CDM and illustrate the importance of active host country involvement. The authors discuss the problems that will be addressed by forthcoming negotiation rounds and propose practical solutions for the CDM including baseline-setting, institutional structure and credit sharing. Moreover, a long-term view on linking climate and development policy is taken to achieve an equitable allocation of emission rights. Learn More
