Overview

Efficiency and Equity of Climate Change Policy is a comprehensive asse ssment of the economic effects of climate change policy, addressing th e issues with a quantitative modelling approach. The book thus goes be yond the usual statements on the efficiency of economic instruments to identify the way gains and losses are distributed; who gains and who loses. Both the costs and benefits of climate change policies are anal yzed. Most papers also provide useful information on the economic feat ures of the Kyoto Protocol, its possible extensions, and the effect of different implementation strategies (such as the debate on emissions trading ceilings).
