The Climate Briefing

In 2021, the UK is hosting the annual UN Climate Change Conference, also known as COP26, where politicians and experts from across the world gather to cooperate on addressing the threat of climate change.

This podcast, from the Energy, Environment and Resources Programme at Chatham House, explores the major issues that shape international debates on climate change.

Nov 23, 2020

In the latest episode of the Climate Briefing the team explore the concept of carbon pricing, a set of mechanisms which incentivise businesses and consumers to reduce their carbon emissions, and consider the dynamics of the hotly contested Article 6 negotiations.

Ben speaks to Stuart Evans from Vivid Economics about how carbon pricing works, how it can help reduce emissions and how these mechanisms could have contrasting effects in developed and developing countries.

In the second interview, Anna and Aglaja Espelage from the Perspectives Climate Group take a deep dive into the negotiations on Article 6 with the aim of disentangling what parties are negotiating, why the negotiations are important and why it has been so difficult to reach an agreement.
