Asian Development Bank Institute (ADBI) Workshop Abstact Submission
Many developing Asian countries are among those committed to greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction targets, or nationally determined contributions, under the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. To achieve these targets, countries have started to plan or implement policies incentivizing emission reductions such as carbon taxes, emission trading schemes, emission caps, energy taxes, and subsidy removals.
Although GHG emission reduction policies can help to moderate fossil fuel consumption and emissions, they may also undermine trade and growth by raising production and mitigation costs. Economy-wide assessments of emissions reduction policies could help to produce implementation recommendations that limit significant disruptions to economic growth.
ADBI invites unpublished, high quality empirical or theoretical research papers addressing these themes for possible inclusion in a special issue of the Journal of Environmental Management. Paper topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
The impact of planned or implemented emission reduction policies
The effects on a country’s emission reductions, economic growth, macroeconomic variables, tax revenue, or efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals
Thematic studies or case studies of effective emission reduction policies
Authors of selected papers will be invited to the paper development workshop, the date and location of which will be announced later. ADBI will fund the travel of one author per selected paper who must be a citizen of an Asian Development Bank member country.
The selected papers will be submitted to the Journal of Environmental Management for potential publication in the special issue.
