CPLC research conference



Over the past several years, we have seen a proliferation of carbon pricing approaches around the world and an increase in the diversity of such approaches. Research has underpinned much of the progress made to date and helped understand, inter alia, design features of carbon pricing instruments; success factors for effective implementation; ways to address market and competitive distortions; and the role and alignment of companion policies. In addition, a growing body of experience and data is accumulating from the operation and modelling of different carbon pricing approaches, from which much can be learned. The application of carbon pricing instruments has revealed new or persistent challenges around market stability and liquidity; managing transitions and impacts in relation to carbon intensive sectors and communities; addressing overlapping policies; combining carbon pricing instruments; expanding the scope of carbon pricing to more heterogeneous sectors of the economy; and adjusting system designs over time to realize committed ambition levels.

Research and analysis can serve as the lynchpin for effective carbon pricing design and implementation. With the goal to strengthen the knowledge base on carbon pricing and foster an improved understanding of the evolving challenges to its successful application, the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition will convene researchers, practitioners, and interested stakeholders for a CPLC Research Conference, scheduled to take place February 14 – 15, 2019 in New Delhi, India. Leveraging its high-level membership of governments, the private sector, and civil society organizations, CPLC will draw on outcomes of this conference to help bridge the existing gap between theory and practice, and to inform future decisions taken by policy makers and corporate leaders.
