Description
Many jurisdictions are considering carbon pricing to help achieve climate commitments, including Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement and net zero targets. However, knowing where and how to start can be challenging. What analysis is required? What issues need to be considered? Which carbon pricing instrument is right for a jurisdiction? How should analysis be presented to decision makers?

This session will provide an overview of the process for building the case for carbon pricing and choosing an appropriate carbon pricing instrument. It will provide space for a dialogue with jurisdictions that have already begun the carbon pricing journey and provide an overview of the PMR’s recent publication ‘Carbon Pricing Assessment and Decision Making’.
