The panel discussion will be preceded by an English-language, scientific ROCHADE conference. Do ambitious climate policies prevent economic development? Do rising CO2 prices burden poor households in the global South in particular? These questions will be discussed with leading international scholars researching the development and distributional impacts of climate policy and the transformation of the global energy system.
