ABSTRACT : The presentation will discuss factors related to the transition to a low carbon economy and will be followed by a discussion on some of the following topics: • is it in the EU’s interest to adopt the 30% instead of the 20% target? • the green investment bank • technology agreements – progress in Cancun? • border tax adjustment for carbon-intensive products – a viable and effective instrument? • Chinese targets for low-carbon development – what do they mean? • linkage of climate change negotiation with other issues (trade, air quality, energy security, development) • what are the new economics arguments for the green new deal?
