On 9 November 2017 from 14:30-16:00, the Green Fiscal Policy Network together with Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety is hosting the side event Supporting Implementation of the NDCs: The Role of Carbon Pricing and Fiscal Policies at COP23 in Bonn.
Fiscal policies such as carbon pricing and fossil fuel subsidy reform can mobilise revenues for climate finance and provide a cost-effective approach to reducing GHG emissions. 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. It will bring together a panel of experts to discuss countries' commitments on fiscal policies in their NDCs, challenges faced and what still needs to be done to meet the Paris targets. The panel will be composed of members of government delegations, international organizations, development finance institutions, and academia.
