Climate Agreements in a Mitigation-Adaptation Game

Basak Bayramoglu (), Michael Finus () and Jean-François Jacques

No 2016.17, Working Papers from FAERE - French Association of Environmental and Resource Economists

Abstract: We study the strategic interaction between mitigation (public good) and adaptation (private good) strategies in a climate agreement. We show that these two strategies are strategic substitutes considering various definitions of substitutability. Moreover, adaptation may cause mitigation levels between different countries to be no longer strategic substitutes but complements. We analyze under which conditions this leads to more succesful self-enforcing agreements. We argue that our results extend to many important externality problems involving public goods.
