"Distributional impacts of carbon pricing policies under the Paris Agreement: inter and intra-regional perspective"
by Bussolo, Maurizio, Maksym Chepeliev, Israel Osorio Rodarte and Dominique van der Mensbrugghe

As all-time highs of GHG emissions were observed in 2018 (Le Quéré et al. 2018) the urgency to take real actions to combat climate change has heated up. To meet the Paris Agreement target of a temperature increase below 2oC would require a significant boost of current policy efforts (Rogelj et al. 2016). Even to stay on track with the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) communicated by countries would require a change of the current policy trajectory (UNFCCC 2018).

Although associated with multiple benefits for the environment as well as the economy, achieving a stringent global GHG emissions target is likely to come with significant implementation costs and could impact different aspects of human well-being. Numerous studies have shown that carbon taxation could result in regressive distributional impacts for households (Ohlendorf et al. 2018) and that properly designed compensatory measures should be implemented to avoid regressive outcomes (Haug et al. 2018).
