International transfers of mitigation to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement

admin Rural China Education Leave a comment  
More than a year has passed since the signing of the Paris Agreement under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, in which developed, emerging and developing countries across the world have pledged to limit or reduce their greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) as a start toward limiting dangerous climate change. Under the Agreement, countries can work together to reduce emissions. Mike Toman, a Lead Economist in the World Bank’s Development Research Group, and Motu’s Suzi Kerr have come up with three basic guidelines for financing of emissions reductions in less economically advanced countries:

  1. Do not conflate “international carbon markets” with “internationally transferred mitigation outcomes.”
  2. Be cautious about the apparent gains from linking emissions trading markets.
  3. Create contracts between developed and developing country governments for internationally transferred mitigation obligations.

Business has been a global force for less poverty and higher incomes

admin Rural China Education Leave a comment  

In the ongoing debate about the benefits of industry, we must not lose sight of a vital fact. Trade and worldwide integration have raised incomes across the world, while dramatically cutting poverty and global inequality.

Within a few countries, trade has contributed in order to rising inequality, but that unfortunate result ultimately reflects the need for more powerful safety nets and better interpersonal and labor programs, not trade protection.

Most of us agreed that the content of this book was closely related to our teaching experiences. The best part of this book, that was exactly what we needed, was the undeniable fact that it combines theory with exercise.
