A natural outcome of the emerging pledge and review approach to international climate change policy is the interest in comparing mitigation efforts among countries. Many will want to know if similar or “peer” countries are undertaking (or planning to undertake) “comparable” efforts in mitigating their greenhouse gas emissions.

On November 14, 2017 (Japan Pavilion, h. 12:30 – 13:45), the COP23 Side Event “Towards Sustainable Climate Change Response Measures under the Paris Agreement” presents methods for evaluating nationally determined contributions’ emission reduction efforts and assesses their economic costs. The panel will focus on how to reduce compliance costs while highlighting the value of technology and social innovations.
The President of the CMCC Foundation Antonio Navarra will make a speech at the event.

Other speakers: Keigo Akimoto, Group Leader, Chief Researcher, Systems Analysis Group, Research Institute of Innovation Technology for the Earth (RITE); Carlo Carraro, CMCC Strategic Council, Professor of Environmental Economics at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice and Scientific Director of Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM); Hiroyuki Tezuka, Chair, Global Environment Strategy Working Group, KEIDANREN.
Moderator: Raymond Kopp, Senior Fellow and Co-Director of the Center for Energy and ClimateEconomics, Resources for the Future (RFF).
