Technology Transfers for Climate Change
International climate agreements are extremely difficult to achieve. Uncertainty about the country-specific benefits of climate protection as well as the fact that the efforts are contributions to a public good and provide the possibility for non-contributors to free-ride, strengthen the incentives to wait and postpone own mitigation efforts. At the same time, the irreversibility of the damages makes early contributions desirable. A recent article by May Elsayyad and Florian Morath explains why technology sharing may be a way out of the dilemma.
