Multiple climate change policies: killing no birds with two stones?

Europe wastes billions of euros by having overlapping climate-change policies. Is Australia about to make the same mistake?

A price on carbon is critical for effective climate change policy. But what happens when cap-and-trade is combined with other policy instruments?

Dr Cameron Hepburn explained why more than a carbon price is needed and the potential pitfalls from multiple overlapping instruments that can interact in undesirable ways, undermining rather than complementing a carbon price. He will be joined by an expert panel to discuss how we might learn from Europe’s experience.
