COP21 session – Getting the house in order: Aligning Policies for the Low-carbon Economy

Organizer: OECD

Date: Fri / Dec. 4 - 11:15

Time: 11:15

Area: Blue Zone

Location: Conference Centre – Blue Zone – Delegations Area – Hall 3 – Pavilion 7

At the request of the OECD Ministerial Council, the OECD, IEA, ITF and NEA joined forces to create a first-of-its-kind diagnosis of policy misalignments restricting the transition to a low-carbon economy. The effectiveness of climate policies is limited by regulatory and policy frameworks outside the specific “climate agenda” that are not aligned or coherent with climate objectives.

The result is that our economies continue to be hard-wired to fossil fuels.

Released in 2015, Aligning Policies for a Low-carbon Economy identifies policy misalignments and possible solutions across investment, taxation, innovation and trade policy, as well as specific chapters on electricity, urban mobility and land-use, all critical for the low-carbon transition.

This event will provide insights on key misalignments identified and invite a range of perspectives on possible policy solutions in different countries.
