A price on carbon? This is now a popular phrase in growing economies and business, where countries are moving towards putting a price on carbon pollution as a means of bringing down emissions and drive investment into cleaner options.
In this video, EfD researchers Thomas Sterner from the University of Gothenburg, Jintao Xu from Peking University and EfD associates: Ian Parry from the International Monetary Fund and Suzi Kerr from the Environmental Defense Fund, explain what carbon pricing is , its different schemes and the importance in developing countries for green growth and sustainable development.
