Climate Change

IPD’s Climate Change Task Force is dedicated to advancing the discourse on what would constitute the least unfair bargaining equilibrium on a climate change agreement, especially from the perspective of developing countries.

The principles for sharing what is left of the global carbon space and the practice of how to do so are intertwined with the issues of financing and access to technology for mitigation and adaptation. What would fair burden sharing look like? What kinds of compromises might or should be acceptable?

In the past, self-interest and vested interest politics have often dominated the discussions of climate change, with little opportunity for a reasoned discourse based on or derived from commonly acceptable ethical principles and notions of economic efficiency. This Task Force brings experts from both developed and developing countries to the table to push the dialogue on a climate change agreement forward.
