For weather and climate information to be used at the grassroots level, it needs to be effectively interpreted and communicated so that it is both useful and usable to decision-makers, farmers and local-level planners. However, to date this information has not always met these requirements.

In this paper the authors develop a model to evaluate first, the market developments in the European Union emissions trading scheme (EU ETS) over 2008–2017 ex-post and second, the performances of main features of the EU ETS reforms that took place in 2018, ex-ante.

Carbon pricing is the most cost-effective policy to address the climate challenge.

Climate action lawsuits against governments and corporations have spread across 28 countries, according to a new analysis. The study reveals that more than 1,300 legal actions concerning climate change have been brought since 1990.

This paper investigates the role of ‘social spillovers’ – people learning from and imitating the behaviour of other people – in the adoption of new technologies, with a focus on liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) in India.

Does unilateral climate change policy cause companies to shift the location of production, thereby creating carbon leakage? In this paper, the authors analyse the effect of the European Union Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) on the geographical distribution of carbon emissions of multinational companies.

In this paper, the authors develop a model to assess the market stability reserve, a key feature of reforming the European Union’s emissions trading system (EU ETS). Reforms to the EU ETS have been made in the face of a significant, prolonged downturn in the allowance price.
