PESD research fellow Varun Rai is featured in the Harvard International Review
In a new article in the Fall 2009 issue of the Harvard International Review PESD research fellow Varun Rai discusses the critical elements of effective international carbon offsets markets. The article argues that fundamental problems of perverse incentives and huge transaction costs render the clean development mechanism (CDM) unfit as the backbone of international carbon offsets markets post-2012. Instead, the article emphasizes the need for multilateral deals around large sectors that leverage synergies between climate change benefits and the core interests of developing countries.

PESD releases new working paper on the real drivers of carbon capture and storage in China and implications for climate policy
PESD researchers Richard Morse, Gang He, and Varun Rai offer a cutting-edge analysis of China's carbon capture and sequestration efforts, which are now widely viewed as critical for stabilization of the global climate. They argue that China's energy security interests are the primary drivers of current CCS projects. Contemplating CCS at scale in the Chinese context, they argue that Chinese energy markets present special obstacles for deploying CCS in China and offer insights into how international climate policy can engage this crucial problem.
