Paris Reinforce: Central Asia and Caspian region Stakeholder Discussion Series #2

Second edition of the Paris Reinforce workshop with focus on Central Asian and Caspian (CAC) region.

Date: March 2, 2021, 10:00 am Topic: Green economy

In 2019, a new 3-year research project called Paris Reinforce was launched, funded by the European Commission and encompassing 17 partners from within Europe and across the world. The project’s aim is to understand the potential greenhouse gas emission reduction pathways consistent with the landmark Paris Agreement, in several major economies across the globe.

A key branch of modelling is focussed upon the Central Asian and Caspian (CAC) region, and a fundamental element is engagement with key stakeholders. On 9th December, the project held a first stakeholder-workshop focussing upon the region. This second workshop will provide an opportunity for modellers and stakeholders to progress further in their dialogue around the energy and climate evolutions of the CAC region and countries.

Translation into Russian will be provided.

This event is open only to select experts and Bruegel’s Membership.

Opinion

A phase out of Russian oil may be less effective than a tariff at reducing Putin’s rents

A punitive tariff on all energy imports from Russia would be a better choice than a gradually phased-in embargo on selected fuels.

Cutting Putin’s energy rent: ‘smart sanctioning’ Russian oil and gas

The most efficient way for Europe to sanction Russian energy would not be an embargo, but the introduction of an import tariff that can be used flexibly to control the degree of economic pressure on Russia.
