Making Paris Happen – The role of fiscal policies for a low-carbon, inclusive green economy

May 31, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm CEST

The Green Fiscal Policy Network in cooperation with Green Budget Germany organised a side-event at the 2016 EU Green Week to explore how fiscal policies can support implementation of the Paris Climate Agreement.  A keynote speech by Hans Eichel (Former Finance Minister, Germany 1999-2005) was followed by a high-level panel discussion with European, international and national experts. Discussions focused on current approaches to carbon pricing at EU and national level, challenges faced and the need for further action on all fronts to meet the Paris targets.
