Global Solar Council Webinar - March 18
Carbon pricing as a win-win solution for a green recovery

As the global economy starts to rebound from the trauma of the pandemic, governments are faced with twin challenges:
● There is a need to turn promises of a green recovery into an effective set of policy instruments that provide financing and support for an unprecedented wave of clean energy investment;
● Public finances have been severely stretched by emergency measures during the pandemic, limiting options to raise new funds.

This GSC webinar in association with Worldwide Carbon Price will explain why this is the perfect time to expand carbon pricing in the world, while examining how it could work and explore the benefits to fiscal regimes, trade, investment and climate policy.
