THE EU 2050 LOW-CARBON STRATEGY: WHICH POLICY DESIGN?
Keynote Speaker: Anil Markandya, BC3 Basque Centre for Climate Change, The EU 2050 Low-Carbon Strategy: Which Policy Design?
Introduction and Chair: Valeria Costantini, Department of Economics and Rossi-Doria Centre, Roma Tre University
In collaboration with Department of Economics, Roma Tre University and Master in Environment and Development Economics, Roma Tre University
Abstract. The CECILIA2050 project has been set up to understand how policy instruments work in interaction, what factors determine their performance, and how the European climate policy instruments mix should evolve to guide the transformation to a low-carbon economy. The 2016 Rossi-Doria Lecture will describe the main findings of the project, particularly focusing on the policy implications emerging from the cooperation between the scientific European teams involved and the stakeholders consulted during the three-years project. There emerge several advices to policy makers on how to improve the economic efficiency and environmental effectiveness of the instruments mix, and how address constraints that limit their performance or feasibility. The latter include public acceptance; availability of finance and the physical infrastructure, as well as the administrative and legal framework
