American Energy Society recommends a paper on climate accords by Klaus Schmidt and Axel Ockenfels

The American Energy Society recommends in the forefront of the COP26 Climate Change Conference in Glasgow the paper “Focusing Climate Negotiations On a Uniform Common Commitment Can Promote Cooperation” by Klaus Schmidt and Axel Ockenfels about the design of climate negotiations. Utilizing a laboratory experiment and game theoretical analysis, they find that the success of negotiations to promote cooperation strongly depends on the kind of commitment negotiated.
