The EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) is the world’s largest carbon market and has become a model for market-based approaches to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in other world regions.

A growing literature characterizes climate change damages by relating temperature shocks to GDP. But theory does not clearly prescribe estimable forms of this relationship, yielding discretion to researchers and generating potentially considerable model uncertainty.

Policy makers and utility managers can use a variety of tariff structures to calculate customers’ bills for water and sanitation services, ranging from a simple flat monthly fee to complicated multipart tariffs with seasonal pricing based on metered water use.

Climate change and variability are affecting weather patterns and causing seasonal shifts with serious repercussions for households and communities in Kenya.

There is a growing body of literature on the impact of climate change in Africa. Most studies have concentrated on the impact of climate change on crop and livestock productivity, while other studies have assessed adaptation to climate change.

Several studies have found that taxing vehicle purchase or ownership on the basis of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions reduces CO2 emissions.

Employing hourly data records from 2013 and 2014 in Beijing, investigate the causal effects of vehicle traffic on air pollution.

Energy efficiency standards based on product attributes may interact with market conditions and affect the overall stringency of the standards. In this paper analyze the interaction between gasoline prices and the redesigned and tightened federal fuel economy standards.

More than 40 percent of US corn is now used to produce biofuels, which are used as substitutes for gasoline in transportation.

Using a unique city-level panel on the daily air pollution index (API) and fine-scale meteorological data from 2009 to 2013 in China, examine the existence and the magnitude of spatial spillover effects of urban air pollution in Chinese cities.
