This book, co-edited by Jos Delbeke and Peter Vis, explains the EU’s climate policies in an accessible way, to demonstrate the step-by-step approach that has been used to develop these policies, and the ways in which they have been tested and further improved in the light of experience.
It shows that there is no single policy instrument that can bring down greenhouse gas emissions, but the challenge has been to put a jigsaw of policy instruments together that is coherent, delivers emissions reductions, and is cost-effective.
The book was presented by Peter VIS, former Head of Cabinet to Connie Hedegaard, European Commissioner for Climate Action (2010–2014) and discussed by Massimo Tavoni, Deputy Coordinator for Climate Change and Sustainable Development, FEEM, Italy.
