The course provides a comprehensive economic approach to climate change: its origins, links to climate science, tasks of mitigation and adaptation, and economic instruments needed for both goals. The course places much emphasis on international climate agreement and international instruments to implement it. European union emissions trading scheme, separate policy towards land-use and effort sharing sectors are analyzed separately. Discussion on instrumented targeting emissions is complemented by an analysis of instruments promoting production of clean energy. The rest of the course is devoted to adaptation policies. Economic principles concerning tasks left to private agents and the society, respectively, are examined and so are the instruments promoting adaptation.
