COP 23: Supporting implementation of the NDCs - The role of carbon pricing and fiscal policies

The role of such instruments in supporting climate action is increasingly recognized and over 90 countries included some form of fiscal policies in their NDCs. This event examines the role of carbon pricing and fiscal policies in implementing the NDCs.

This is an FFSR side event at COP 23.
