Lunch seminar: Trade and Climate Change

April 16 2009
Venue: ECIPE, Rue Belliard 4-6, Brussels
Time: 13:00

As the world prepares for the Copenhagen summit in December, greater attention is being paid to measures to curb carbon emissions and their effect on trade and investment. A cap-and-trade bill has recently been passed by the House of Representatives in the US (a bill which includes a border adjustment), but the Senate remains hesitant of the benefits of a cap-and-trade approach. The Australian Senate recently voted down the government’s proposal for a cap-and-trade bill. There are new calls in Europe for a border tax adjustment against countries that have not signed up to ambition targets of reductions of carbon emissions.

You are cordially invited to a lunch presentation by the Australian economist Bill Bowen. Mr. Bowen is one of Australia’s most experienced economists in the fields of trade and the environment. He has been a senior official in the Australian government, the World Bank, and been an Advisor to Australian Prime Ministers. He was a pioneer in modeling the effects of emission trading schemes. Mr. Bowen will talk about trade and climate-change measures in Australia and other parts of world.

RSVP by October 5.

A light lunch will be served.
