ASPI Partners with the World Bank to Advance Global Carbon Pricing
Kevin Rudd at the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition Second Annual High Level Assembly Meeting
On April 20, 2017, Asia Society Policy Institute (ASPI) President Kevin Rudd presented the case for Northeast Asian carbon market cooperation at the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition (CPLC) High Level Assembly convened by World Bank and IMF Presidents Jim Kim and Christine Lagarde.
The CPLC is a voluntary initiative that brings together governments, the private sector, and civil society leaders to catalyze the adoption of carbon pricing systems around the world. ASPI co-convened a roundtable with the CPLC on the sidelines of the Global Carbon Expo in Cologne last year, bringing together regional and global experts and policymakers to explore carbon market cooperation in Northeast Asia. On April 14, 2017, ASPI was invited to officially join the CPLC as a Strategic Partner, where it will collaborate to expand and deepen the carbon pricing agenda in Northeast Asia and beyond.
In this short interview with the CPLC, Rudd speaks about the ASPI initiative, Toward a Northeast Asian Carbon Market, highlighting that carbon market linkage in Northeast Asia could significantly impact global climate change, and boost cooperative carbon pricing efforts around the world.
