State and Trends of Carbon Pricing Around the World

The number of carbon pricing initiatives around the world continues to increase. Furthermore, existing systems have progressively strengthened as jurisdictions assess their policies to better align with their climate objectives. Still, we are very far from where we need to be to meet the Paris Agreement objectives. Both the coverage and price levels of carbon pricing initiatives are still insufficient.

It is crucial that jurisdictions act now to increase the breadth and depth of carbon pricing. 2019 is also a critical year for clarifying the implementation of the international carbon pricing mechanisms stated in the Paris Agreement and unlock their potential for accelerating action and increasing ambition.

Following the launch of the State and Trends of Carbon Pricing 2019 report in June, this webinar will present an up-to-date overview of existing and emerging carbon pricing initiatives around the world and  the observed trends in their development and implementation. Following the presentation of the report, this webinar will also cover in greater depth the existing carbon markets (or emission trading schemes) implemented around the world.
