An Analysis of the Impact and Uncertainty of the Coordination Effects of Climate Change Policy
Greenhouse gas emission reduction in response to climate change will not only reduce emissions of other air pollutants, but may have indirect impacts, which are related to greenhouse gas emissions. The most widely known policy for addressing climate change can lead to air quality improvement. These coordination effects are not taken into account in policy formulation, mainly due to the uncertainty in the cost of GHG abatement and the barriers to institutional mechanisms. However, the coordination effects of air quality in the design and evaluation of climate policy is almost certainly certain, which will increase social output and improve social welfare because these effects are significant. The existing policy analysis does not pay attention to these, and thus does not put the effects into consideration for the improvement of the overall social welfare.
