Carbon taxes and the attainment of emissions reductions targets in South Africa –A critical stocktaking of recent analyses and policies.

The Working Group report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), covering recent developments in the physical science of climate change, serves as a stark warning of the environmental dangers humanity faces.

In an Institute of Social and Economic Research (ISER) working paperProfessor Martin Gustafsson reviews South Africa’s carbon taxes and emission reduction targets aimed at bringing together the knowledge and sources non-specialists such as teachers and journalists may require to understand the complexities around the country’s obligations to reduce emissions, and the existing policies aimed at achieving this.
