A good policy measure for climate can badly impact low income households. How can this be circumvented when inequalities stagger up & the COVID-19 crisis hits our economies?
Several examples of measures taken to reduce emissions have led to social movements. Citizens feared for their jobs and income – and eventually opposed the proposed measures. We embarked in thorough research with our knowledge partner the Enel Foundation and with two experts consultants (Guidehouse and Cambridge Econometrics) to find solutions. Our findings will identify the climate policies having the least impact on low income citizens and suggest concrete mitigation measures to minimise any regressive effects.
