"I Will If You Will" in Climate Cooperation | Alessandro Tavoni
Alessandro Tavoni is Senior assistant professor in the Department of Economics at the University of Bologna. He is also a Visiting Senior Fellow to the GRI.
He will present his paper ‘”I Will If You Will” in Climate Cooperation’
Abstract: International efforts to mitigate climate change are lagging behind. We study in a laboratory experiment the behavioral effects on cooperation along the lines of Nordhaus proposal of a climate club. We also evaluate the effects of each element of the agreement in isolation. Overall, a climate club substantially raises cooperation with respect to voluntary cooperation in a plain public good game. The effect, though, is similar to offering decision makers the possibility of conditional cooperation and punishment without a club structure.
