Country stakes in climate change negotiations: two dimensions of vulnerability

Piet Buys, Uwe Deichmann, Craig Meisner (), Thao Ton-That and David Wheeler

No 4300, Policy Research Working Paper Series from The World Bank

Abstract: Using a comprehensive geo-referenced database of indicators relating to global change and energy, the paper assesses countries'likely attitudes with respect to international treaties that regulate carbon emissions. The authors distinguish between source and impact vulnerability and classify countries according to these dimensions. The findings show clear differences in the factors that determine likely negotiating positions. This analysis and the resulting detailed, country level information help to explain the incentives required to make the establishment of such agreements more likely.
