Rather than focusing strictly on short-term issues dealing with the implementation of the Kyoto Protocol to reduce greenhouse gases, the eight international specialists conducting this study examine the fundamentals of the climate problem. They take a long-term perspective on climate change, and explore incentives for both governments and industry to adopt climate change policies. They examine which incentives are provided by different policy instruments, how short-term and long-term incentives might be combined, and what policy mix provides the greatest motivation for firms and governments to act.
