International climate policy

Our research in international climate policy covers issues related to mitigation of climate change in developing countries, adaptation to climate change, international climate finance and cooperation, the inter-linkages between climate policy and energy policy, and the negotiation process under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

We analyze, for instance, how funds for adaptation and mitigation can be allocated efficiently, whether reporting of public climate flows is accurate or driven by political interests, and how private sector investments can be mobilized.

Another focus for our research are international carbon markets. For details see:
