    An ‘equal effort’ approach to assessing the North–South climate finance gap

    This study employs a number of Integrated Assessment Models to determine what the optimal financial transfers between high-income and developing economies would be if climate mitigation effort, measured as mitigation costs as a share of gross domestic product, were to be divided equally across regions through a global carbon market. read more »

    Beyond carbon pricing: The role of banking and monetary policy in financing the transition to a low-carbon economy

    It is widely acknowledged that introducing a price on carbon represents a crucial precondition for filling the current gap in low-carbon investment. However, as this paper argues, carbon pricing in … read more »

    The structural shift to green services: A two-sector growth model with public capital and open-access resources

    An expansion of economic activities with low impact on ecological resources is a crucial component of the transition to a low-carbon society. “Green” structural change is analysed here through a model with a “progressive” manufacturing sector and a “stagnant” service sector. read more »

    A macroeconomic perspective on climate change mitigation: Meeting the financing challenge

    Building on simulations using Integrated Assessment Models and historical evidence, this paper explores some of the issues posed by this dual financing challenge. We discuss the "fiscal self-reliance" of the energy sector, finding that carbon pricing would generate sufficient fiscal revenues within each region to finance total investment in energy supply. read more »
