Climate change has especially severe consequences for poor countries. However, because of growing energy demand, it is difficult for developing economies to refrain from fossil fuel investments. The goal of this program is to address the problems related to the implementation of carbon pricing in the Global South. The aim is to create a global community for research and engagement with policy makers, to ensure widespread capacity for producing appropriate analyses and designing effective policies that are politically viable.
Areas of Contribution

The cases of Colombia, China, Ethiopia, and Costa Rica are also examples of the work involved in helping societies go through the process of implementing carbon pricing.
