Measuring the Impact of Multiple Air Pollution Agreements on Global CO2 Emissions

Measuring the Impact of Multiple Air Pollution Agreements on Global CO2 Emissions <p>This paper studies the effect on CO<sub>2</sub> emissions of the various agreements that follow the Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution Convention and are related to acid rain problems. The analysis is based on a panel dataset of 150 countries over the period 1970–2008 and deals with the problems linked to the analysis of multiple agreements (e.g., time and membership overlap). We show that ratifying an additional treaty has a significant and negative impact on the level of CO<sub>2</sub> emissions, even if it is not targeted toward CO<sub>2</sub>.

Abstract

<p>This paper studies the effect on CO<sub>2</sub> emissions of the various agreements that follow the Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution Convention and are related to acid rain problems. The analysis is based on a panel dataset of 150 countries over the period 1970–2008 and deals with the problems linked to the analysis of multiple agreements (e.g., time and membership overlap). We show that ratifying an additional treaty has a significant and negative impact on the level of CO<sub>2</sub> emissions, even if it is not targeted toward CO<sub>2</sub>.
