Ancillary Benefits of Climate Policy: New Theoretical Developments and Empirical Findings


Add your own review!

Overview

This volume presents new developments in the research on ancillary benefits. Twenty years after the influential OECD report on ancillary benefits, the authors discuss theoretical innovations and offer new empirical findings on various ancillary effects in different world regions. Covering topics such as ancillary health effects associated with reduced air pollution, the influence of ancillary benefits on international cooperation on climate protection, co-effects of carbon capture and storage, ancillary effects of adaptation to climate change, multi-criteria decision analysis covering multiple effects of climate protection actions, and the analysis of primary and ancillary effects within an impure public goods framework, it provides starting points for further research on integrated climate policies seeking to address a range of policy objectives simultaneously.

After working as a professor at the newly founded European University in Frankfurt (Oder) between 1992 and 1996, he returned to Regensburg as a full professor of Public Economics. His main fields of research are international environmental economics, the theory of public goods, intertemporal evaluation and discounting, social protection and distribution policy and the links between economics and ethics. Prof. Anil Markandya, Ph.D., graduated from the London School of Economics with an MSc in Econometrics in 1968 and was awarded his Ph.D. on the Economics of the Environment in 1975. Since then, he has divided his time between academic and advisory work. On the academic side, he has published widely in the areas of climate change, environmental valuation, environmental policy, energy and environment, green accounting, macroeconomics and trade. He has held academic positions at the universities of Princeton, Berkeley and Harvard in the US and at University College London and Bath University in the UK. From 2014-2016, he was the President of the European Association of Environmental & Resource Economists (EAERE). Furthermore, he was lead author for chapters of the 3rd and 4th IPCC Assessment Reports on Climate Change. Professor Markandya has also been an advisor to many national and international organizations, including all international development banks, UNDP, the EU and the governments of India and the UK. Prof. Dr. Dirk T. G. Rubbelke is Professor of Economics at the Technische Universitat Bergakademie Freiberg, Germany.
