International Workshop on Carbon markets in Emerging Economies

International Workshop on Carbon markets in Emerging Economies

22 November 2010

University of São Paulo, Brazil

Co-sponsored by:

· Institute for Advanced Studies, Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil

· Office of International Programs, Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil

· US National Science Foundation


International climate policy is increasingly favoring the use of emissions trading systems to reduce the emissions that lead to climate change. The world’s largest and most rapidly developing economies—including Brazil, India, South Korea, and China—are therefore likely to experience increasing carbon prices via expansion of domestic and international greenhouse gas markets. Yet this rapid change remains largely unstudied in the emerging economies, with little systematic investigation of the process by which firms enter and participate in carbon markets in different country or sectoral contexts. This workshop seeks to examine this process in greater detail in the Brazilian context, and invites scholars, students, and practitioners with an interest in business response to carbon markets.

The workshop has two goals: First, to advance scholarship and understanding in areas of business investment decisions under international carbon markets in emerging economies; and second, to enhance the international network of scholars, researchers, and practitioners. Please note that English will be the official language for the conference.
