Reflecting the growing momentum for carbon pricing worldwide, the 2016 edition of the State and Trends of Carbon Pricing report targets the wide audience of public and private stakeholders engaged in carbon pricing design and implementation. This report also provides critical input for negotiators involved in implementation of the Paris Agreement at the meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP) in Marrakesh.
As in the previous editions, the report provides an up-to-date overview of existing and emerging carbon pricing instruments around the world, including national and subnational initiatives. Furthermore, it gives an overview of current corporate carbon pricing initiatives.
Another key focus of the report is on the importance of aligning carbon pricing with the broader policy landscape. The analysis provides lessons for policymakers on how to maximize synergies between climate mitigation and other related policies, while managing potential tensions and tradeoffs.
This year’s report provides new modelling analysis to demonstrate the crucial benefits that an international carbon market established under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement could provide in reducing the costs to countries of achieving their emission reduction targets. An international carbon market could thus enable greater ambition in taking steps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to a level consistent with the 2°C climate stabilization goal.
The task team responsible for this report intends to select new relevant topics to be explored in future editions. These topics could include, for example, the interaction of carbon taxes and fiscal policy. As part of the World Bank’s expanded carbon pricing intelligence program, additional analytical topics such as the effectiveness of carbon pricing may also be explored.
The report benefited greatly from the valuable written contributions and perspectives of our colleagues in the climate and carbon finance community, ensuring the quality and clarity of this report: Conor Barry, Carter Brandon, Karan Capoor, Hannah Cushing, Kurt van Dender, Shari Friedman, Dafei Huang, Ying Liu, Blanca Moreno-Dodson, Guoqiang Qian, Nigel Topping, and Peter Zapfel. Section 4 strongly benefited from the contribution of Ajay Gambir and Adam Hawkes of Imperial College London.
