One Planet Summit marca o segundo aniversário do Acordo de Paris. O evento, que será realizado dia 12, em Paris, e contará a presença do presidente Emmanuel Macron, tem como objetivo buscar formas de viabilizar o financiamento adequado para a concretização de objetivos do Acordo, como redução das emissões de gases causadores de efeito estufa e proteção das populações vulneráveis às consequências das mudanças climáticas.
No evento será apresentado, às xxx horas, o estudo "A climate finance initiative to achieve the Paris Agreement", que aborda os princípios de um Grupo de Iniciativas para o Financiamento Climático (GIFC, sigla em inglês) e busca aproximar países desenvolvidos e em desenvolvimento para impulsionar investimentos em infraestrutura sustentável. O estudo contou com a participação do professor La Rovere e foi coordenado por Dipak Dasgupta (co-fundador do Fundo Verde para o Clima), Jean-Charles Hourcade (Diretor do Centre International de Recherches sur l'Environnement et le Développement) e Seyni Nafo (diretor da Iniciativa de Acesso à Energia na África).
Segundo declaração conjunta que será divulgada no evento, o One Planet Summit tem como objetivo mobilizar os agentes financeiros a investirem em uma nova forma de prosperidade mais justa, resiliente e de baixo uso de carbono. "A fim de transformar radicalmente nossas economias e reduzir drasticamente nossas emissões de gases causadores do efeito estufa, para desenvolver as capacidades de resiliência aos efeitos já muito reais das mudanças climáticas, particularmente para aqueles das populações mais vulneráveis"

The Summit will take place in Paris on 12 December 2017, the anniversary of the adoption of the Paris Agreement. The Summit comes at a key moment in the international agenda and aims to provide a complementary contribution to foster greater climate action by a wide range of actors, in particular regarding the financial angle. In the context of the COP23 on 6-17 November 2017 and in preparation for the facilitative dialogue during COP24 in 2018 as well as other key events such as the Climate Summit of the United Nations in 2019, the Summit on 12 December will be the occasion to strengthen a high-level political impetus on climate action especially focusing on:
In parallel of the One Planet Summit on December 12, many side events are organized on December 10, 11 and 13 in Paris by public, private and civil society stakeholders in order to contribute to the mobilization and the implementation of concrete solutions towards greater climate action.
In this way, besides the main event on December 12, Prof. Emilio was invited to attend the High level seminar, organised by IDDRI under the auspices of the French minister for Higher education, Research and Innovation, December 11th 2017, 9am – 1pm, Paris.

Title of presentation: Carbon revenues: bridging the gap from climate issues to fiscal benefits
Co-organizers: World Bank, AFD, I4CE, Ecofys, the Generation Foundation
Thematic focus: carbon pricing, fiscal policies, NDC
Moderator: James CLOSE, Senior director climate change, World Bank
1. Emilie ALBEROLA, Program Director Industry and Energy, Institute for Climate Economics (I4CE)
2. Ian TRIM, Associate Director, Ecofys
3. One representative from a covered entity - TBC
4. Emilio Lebre la Rovere, Executive Coordinator of the Center for Integrated Studies on Climate Change and the Environment, Federal University of Rio, Brazil
Description: An increasing number of countries are exploring how carbon-pricing instruments could help them meet their NDC goals. This event will look at how to use revenues generated by carbon pricing policies to support a low-carbon and climate-resilient development, from the perspective of policy makers in developing countries (World Bank Group-WBG, the Agence Française de Development-AFD and the Institute for Climate Economics-I4CE) as well as of entities covered by carbon pricing instruments (Ecofys and the Generation Foundation under their Carbon Pricing Unlocked partnership).
Other info: This event will present some early results of the WBG-AFD-I4CE study and will launch the new publication of the CPU partnership. Panelists (researchers as well as practitioners from the public and private sector) will discuss some of the challenges and opportunities associated with their experience of the use of carbon revenues.
Prof. Emilio La Rovere was invited to take part of two side-events on the topics of carbon pricing and green bonds taking place as part of the Interconnections Zone during COP23 at Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) / German Development Institute in Bonn.

The recent decade saw an unprecedented and ongoing growth in national und subnational carbon pricing initiatives around the world. The most exciting developments are currently taking place in emerging economies and developing countries in Asia and Latin America. Carbon pricing policies significantly reduce the cost of addressing climate change and unlock economic opportunities as part of the transition to a low-carbon economy. In addition, carbon pricing generates revenues which can be used to mainstream climate change into public policies to support low-carbon and climate-resilient sustainable development. This side event will bring together academics, policymakers and stakeholders to discuss prospects and challenges for carbon pricing in the context of the Paris Agreement and Agenda 2030.

For achieving a 2°C compatible pathway an enormous investment gap exists which has to be financed both with public and private funds. A promising innovative financial instrument for achieving this goal are green bonds. While the green bond market has expanded sizably worldwide, several barriers to its further development exist including the lack of harmonised standards across countries and types of bonds. The aim of this side event is to discuss the main barriers for emerging economies to the further development of the green bond market and to elaborate policy recommendations among experts from the civil society, public and private sector as well as academics.

On October 18, Prof. Emilio La Rovere made a presentation and discussed topics about carbon pricing in the Plenary 2: “What role for carbon pricing for delivering on the Paris Agreement?” at The Latin American and Caribbean Carbon Forum (LACCF).
This is the abstract of Prof. La Rovere’s presentation:
Smart financial mechanisms can help to foster investment in low-carbon infrastructure with a lower explicit carbon price, alleviating the negative impacts of carbon taxes on economic activity and social gains. Reducing the risk of low carbon investments by lowering their capital costs can be obtained through public guarantees allocated in proportion to the project’s expected reduction in GHGs emissions for agreed upon values per ton. These values should reflect, as required by the paragraph 108 of the COP21 ‘Decision’ of the Paris Agreement, ‘the social, economic, and environmental value of mitigation actions and their co-benefits to adaptation, health, sustainable development” (SVMA). An innovative financial device anchored in the SVMA can help to channel international funds to increase public guarantees and reduce the risk of low carbon investments in the LAC region, allowing for a reduction in capital costs of these projects.
Topic: What Role for Carbon Pricing for Delivering on the Paris Agreement?
On October 18, at 11:30 - 13:00
J. Stiglitz and N. Stern indicate in the recently-launched Report of the High-Level Commission on Carbon Prices that a well-designed and robust carbon pricing strategy is an indispensable component of overall policy to efficiently reduce GHG emissions without penalizing economic growth. To date, only 15% of global emissions are covered by a carbon pricing instrument. This high-level discussion aimed to explore tailored ways to expand coverage and impact of carbon pricing instruments in LAC region, and identify opportunities for growth and revenue generation offered by carbon pricing.
