April 15: Carbon Pricing Workstream stakeholder perspectives roundtable

  • Moderated discussion and stakeholders’ stocktake
  • Inside the Civil Society Policy Forum venue

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.

About The CCEN Team

The Citizens’ Climate Engagement Network is a new global framework to support and expand direct citizen and stakeholder engagement in the intergovernmental climate negotiating process. It emerged from the Pathway to Paris project—with the support of Citizens’ Climate Education and Citizens’ Climate Lobby, in collaboration with the UN Millennium Campaign and the World We Want platform. The foundational structure was announced on October 25, 2015, during the Minneapolis 2015 Climate Action: Last Stop Before Paris, and the COP21 in Paris is the venue for its global launch. Everyone is welcome to participate in the shift to a thriving climate future.
