Research on Instrument Design to Reduce Emissions

- the bottom up approach

  • Putting a price on carbon
  • Identifying the role of industry
  • Improving technology/policy interaction
  • Studying the distributional effects of climate policy

Although there have been some progress at the recent COP meetings, the current consensus is that climate change negotiations will not - within the near future - result in legally binding international agreements.

The purpose of the Mistra Indigo research is to understand how to design and select environmental policy instruments to promote long term, cost-effective global mitigation of climate change, taking into account the uncertain international policy situation.

The program is funded by the Mistra foundationexternal link, opens in new window and is a collaboration between researchers at IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute, the Department of Environmental Economics at the University of Gothenburg and Resources for the Future, Washington D.C.
