Instruments for Climate Policy focuses on economic and political aspects related
to the recent proposals and the debate on limits in flexibility, and discusses EU
and US perspectives on climate policy instruments and strategies. This is followed
by chapters on economic efficiency and the use of flexible instruments as well as
contributions to the debate on ‘when flexibility’, on the arguments behind the EU
ceilings proposal and on voluntary approaches to climate policy. One of the main
conclusions reached with respect to proposals for limiting flexibility is the need
to evaluate simultaneously their economic, ecological and international political
consequences. The authors include both important policymakers and leading academics
in the area.
