The Carbon Pricing Workstream (CPW) of the Citizens’ Climate Engagement Network is an always-active venue for dialogue, analysis, and outcome-focused policy work relating to carbon pricing. It works week to week on the establishment of universal principles for effective carbon pricing, a process which has allowed citizens and stakeholders to play a role in shaping the World Bank’s carbon pricing policy, and contributed to the building of a worldwide coalition supporting the aim of adding carbon pricing to all national climate strategies.

We will examine experiences, challenges, best practices, near and distant future plans, and potential game-changer innovations.

Key Questions

Participants are encouraged to share their thoughts and feelings on questions such as:

  • How can carbon pricing can relate to quality of life and development expectations?
  • In what ways can effective carbon pricing create a culture of transparency?
  • What is the environmental effectiveness of carbon pricing policy? What safeguards are needed?
  • If a macro economic solution can effectively motivate climate mitigation, what are the benefits to people in communities? What is equitable?

Experienced CPW participants and co-facilitators will share examples of language within the Paris Agreement and other texts that could be utilized to anchor national policy changes related to carbon pricing.
