Assessment of net mitigation in the context of international greenhouse gas emissions control mechanisms (English)

This paper discusses the scope for market mechanisms, already established for greenhouse gas mitigation in Annex 1 countries that ratified the Kyoto Protocol, for implementing "net mitigation," defined here as mitigation beyond Annex 1 countries' formal mitigation requirements under the Kyoto Protocol. ... See More +

Modeling the marginal value of rainforest losses : a dynamic value function approach (English)

A rainforest can be modeled as a dynamic asset subject to various risks, including risk of fire. Any small part of the forest can be in one of two states: either untouched by forest fire, or already damaged by fire, in which case there is both a local forest loss and increased dryness over a broader area. ... See More +

Fiscal implications of climate change (English)

This paper provides a primer on the fiscal implications of climate change, in particular the policies for responding to it. Many of the complicated challenges that arise in limiting climate change (through greenhouse gas emissions mitigation), and in dealing with the effects that remain (through adaptation to climate change impacts), are of a fiscal nature. ... See More +

Low-level versus high-level equilibrium in public utility service (English)

Heterogeneity of public utility services is common in developing countries.
