ENTWINED researchers Aaron Cosbey and Carolyn Fischer will participate in the workshop and the following key policy questions will be discussed:
- How effective are border measures in reducing carbon leakage?
- How big are the global cost savings from border measures compared to domestic emissions pricing without additional import tariffs and/or export subsidies?
- What is the incidence of border measures across regions? Do they lead to a more "equitable" distribution of economic adjustment costs or do they shift the burden from richer industrialized countries to poorer developing countries?
- Are border measures an effective tool for the protection of emissions-intensive and trade-exposed industries in unilaterally abating regions?
