CPLC WORKSHOP – DISTRIBUTIONAL IMPACTS OF CARBON PRICING: OPTIMIZING IMPACTS WITH CLIMATE DIVIDEND FRAMEWORKS
Carbon pricing instruments (CPIs) have both positive and negative impacts. Distributional impacts can vary, depending on pre-existing economic incentives and dynamics. Climate Strategies developed a brief for Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition partners on the distributional effects of CPIs on households. This workshop will include a presentation of this household impacts brief, by the authors. Citizens’ Climate and Cleantech 21, managing partners of the International Climate Dividend Alliance, will explore with workshop participants how climate dividend frameworks address and resolve some of these distributional impacts.
