Environmental Policy Lecture 4 part 1

The topic of lecture 5 is On the Role of Technology Policies in Climate Mitigation Goals. The Professor starts the class by discussing the need of changing present technology in order to avoid earth's temperature of heating more the 2 degrees, and what we need to do in order to spur this technology change. For example setting carbon prices and making it expensive to burn fuel and so on.

Environmental Policy Lecture 1 part 3

Sterner discusses criteria important to consider when evaluating policy instruments, such as effectiveness, fairness, political feasibility, costs and so on. The same goes for the given conditions, who suffers from, lets say, the emissions? Who will suffer the abatement costs? What uncertainty/risks are there? What does the market look like, is there a monopoly/oligopoly? And so on.

Environmental Policy Lecture 1 part 2

Sterner presents a table where he has categorized different economic policy instruments dividing them into four subgroups based on either affecting the price such as taxes, subsidies and charge and refund schemes, or rights like property rights, tradable permits, or regulation as for example banning or setting a minimum technological standard, or finally the category of info/legal which is based on public participation, voluntary agreements and so on. (The table is found on page 24 in the pdf attached.)

Environmental Policy Lecture 1 part 1

This lecture is an introduction to Environmental Policy a course given at the University of Gothenburg in the spring of 2014. The purpose of the course is to highlight the need of implementing effective environmental policies and thus the course evaluates and discusses already existing instruments and their impact and political feasibility in different settings.
