Climate Agreements In A Mitigation-Adaptation Game

Adaptation can lead to larger self-taxation agreements. Rubio SJ (2019, self-imposed international agreements on the environment: adaptation and complementarity.

Adaptation is rather a private good: its marginal advantages depend only on individual levels of adaptation. Assumptions (e-i) describe the strategic interaction between mitigation and adjustment. Adoption is the new element of this theoretical work. The effectiveness of adaptation is defined as an increasingly concave (or linear) function of the entire reduction phase. The logic behind this assumption is the idea that adaptive measures cannot be applied in the same way, regardless of the amount of damage. In the event of a disaster, no adaptation can be applied: even with extreme effort, the damage cannot be substantially mitigated.

Mitigation prevents extreme damage and, as emissions decrease and climate change slows, adaptation begins to become more effective. In this context, the “Varepsilon” file defines the amount of damage that can be avoided by adaptive measures. It can be understood as a 0:1 variable: for example, value 1 would mean that the damage could be fully absorbed by the adjustment, while with a value of 0.5, the damage could be reduced by 50%. The lower the severity of the damage, the greater the proportion that can be eliminated by adjustment. This is what the hypothesis covers. The literature on IEA games has developed over the years. Finus and Caparrs (2015) provide a collection of some of the most influential works on this theme. Many aspects of the climate negotiations are analysed and, in some cases, more optimistic conclusions are drawn (see z.B.

Barrett and Dannenberg 2012, Eyckmans and Finus 2007 and Finus and Maus 2018). The existence of an adjustment could indeed change the nature of the emissions reduction game by acting on the incentive to freedom of movement. The intuition is that if adaptation is possible, the optimal response to a potential copycat to a climate agreement could be more adaptation and no longer mitigation.
