The Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition (CPLC) and the World Bank Group are hosting the world's first International Research Conference on Carbon Pricing on February 14-15 in New Delhi, India. The event is convening over 30 researchers from across the globe to present papers on various carbon pricing themes. These papers have been selected through a review process by an international scientific committee comprising of academics, researchers, and policymakers. The two-day Conference will host over 300 participants and be centered around six central themes: (1) Learning from Experience, (2) Carbon Pricing Design, (3) Concepts and Methods, (4) Political Economy, (5) Decarbonizing the Economy, and (6) Emerging Frontiers. Each day will feature plenary sessions with leading experts, followed by concurrent sessions covering the six themes.

To further understand the evolving challenges to successful carbon pricing implementation and identify areas of future research, the CPLC welcomes scientists, researchers, practitioners, advocates and policymakers to take stock of the carbon pricing knowledge base and strengthen understanding of emerging trends in carbon pricing.

Powerful policies are needed to achieve the large-scale emission reductions required under the Paris Agreement. Putting a price on carbon pollution is one of the most potent and efficient strategies governments and corporates can use to reduce carbon emissions and combat climate change. 88 countries are considering use of carbon pricing initiatives as part of their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). To support these developments, research and analysis will be vital for effective carbon pricing design and implementation. The CPLC Research Conference will explore the existing carbon pricing knowledge base and foster an improved understanding of the evolving challenges to successful carbon pricing implementation. The research from both modeling carbon pricing approaches and their real-world implementation will help bridge the gap between theory and practice and inform future decisions taken by policymakers and corporate leaders.
