Fair Climate Policy at Global and Regional Level?

High-profile Panel Discussion and Conference on 3 June 2022

How does a globally and regionally fair climate policy work?

The panel discussion will take place in German language at the campus of the Vienna University of Economics and Business (Building LC, Ceremonial Hall 2, Welthandelsplatz 1, 1020 Vienna) as part of the project "The Role of Structural Change and Distributional Effects" (ROCHADE).

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.
