Towards a global climate constitution

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In this paper my concern is the study of the incentives of individual countries to sign an international climate agreement that sets the terms of a climate constitution, that is, it establishes emission rights and rules for trading these rights to combat the climate problem effectively and efficiently.
