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

In this workshop, invited guests will discuss priorities and proposals for the Italian G20 Presidency for a green local infrastructure agenda.
Which role carbon pricing could and should play in the future policy mix?
New Paris Reinforce workshop with focus on Central Asian and Caspian (CAC) region.
A comprehensive and comprehensible multi-model framework offers a real example of “collective” science diplomacy, as an instrument to further support the ambitious goals of the EU Green Deal, in compliance with the EU claim to responsible research.
What are current greenhouse gas mitigation scenarios commonly proposed for India?
“Only a broad policy framework – taking into account economic, fiscal, industrial, labour, innovation and social policy issues – can address the challenges of the climate crisis in a balanced way.”
Bruegel research fellow Simone Tagliapietra discusses his new book, Global Energy Fundamentals.
European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has set a new destination for EU climate policy: a 55% emissions reduction by 2030. This is a good and necessary step on the way to climate neutrality by 2050, but getting there will not be easy, and Europe should prepare for a bumpy road ahead.
When it comes to global carbon emission is a tax the best form of defence? To make the European Green Deal work, the EU is considering a levy on carbon-intensive goods manufactured beyond its borders. But will a carbon border tax spawn a massive bureaucracy and lead to accusations of protectionism? To find out, Nicholas Barrett talked to Georg Zachmann and Ben McWilliams from Bruegel and Gabriel Felbermayr, President of the Kiel Institute for the World Economy.
Most foreign direct investment into Russia originates in the European Union: European investors own between 55 percent and 75 percent of Russian FDI stock. This points to a Russian dependence on European investment, making the EU paramount for Russian medium-term growth. Even if we consider ‘phantom’ FDI that transits through Europe, the EU remains the primary investor in Russia. Most phantom FDI into Russia is believed to originate from Russia itself and thus is by construction not foreign.
Concern is growing in the European Union that a rapprochement between Russia and China could have negative implications for the EU.
