Description: An increasing number of countries are exploring how carbon-pricing instruments could help them meet their NDC goals. This event will look at how to use revenues generated by carbon pricing policies to support a low-carbon and climate-resilient development, from the perspective of policy makers in developing countries (World Bank Group-WBG, the Agence Française de Development-AFD and the Institute for Climate Economics-I4CE) as well as of entities covered by carbon pricing instruments (Ecofys and the Generation Foundation under their Carbon Pricing Unlocked partnership).

Other info: This event will present some early results of the WBG-AFD-I4CE study and will launch the new publication of the CPU partnership. Panelists (researchers as well as practitioners from the public and private sector) will discuss some of the challenges and opportunities associated with their experience of the use of carbon revenues.
