Compensations and contributions under an international carbon treaty

  • Seidman, Laurence
  • Lewis, Kenneth

This paper provides a numerical illustration of how an international carbon treaty might work. The simulations in this paper using 2004 data on carbon emissions and per capita GDP from 178 countries suggest that high-income countries might be much better off collectively compensating low-income countries through an international treaty to help reduce carbon emissions rather than reducing carbon emissions without their help.
