Allocation of ecologically allowable carbon emissions to countries as a key to more effective post–Kyoto Protocol climate change mitigation law

by Inderscience Publishers  (Aug. 10, 2012)

The paper proposes novel carbon indicators as effective control instruments to design the post–Kyoto Protocol climate change mitigation law.

by Routledge/Taylor & Francis  (Jan. 1, 2010)

International climate agreements are important examples of internationally negotiated distributive politics and the resulting obligations vary considerably across countries. Nevertheless, few studies have empirically examined the determinants of burden sharing in this context. The allocation of emission reductions in the Kyoto protocol is ...
