This paper explores how rethinking the global environmental trade agreement could produce long-term benefits, for example by allowing laggard countries to catch up with those more advanced in producing clean energy technologies
How best to make the transition from a high- to low-carbon economy remains open for debate, involving complex dynamics that go beyond basic models of emissions abatement.
