Tom Kram Departs A report, Is Kyoto Fatally Flawed? An Analysis with MacGEM, was presented at the ETSAP workshop in Paris, 9-11 October 2001, by Denise Van Regemorter. The report, which examines the effect on the Kyoto Protocol of the US withdrawal and the Bonn agreement, was prepared by Johan Eyckmans and Denise Van Regemorter of the Center for Economic(More)
We propose a class of sharing schemes for the distribution of the gains from cooperation for coalition games with externalities. In the context of the partition function, it is shown that any member of this class of sharing schemes leads to the same set of stable coalitions in the sense of d’Aspremont et al. (1983). These schemes are “almost ideal” in that(More)
We combine the newest concepts of non-cooperative coalition theory with a computable general equilibrium model close to the seminal RICE-model of Nordhaus and Yang (1996) to determine stable coalition structures in a global warming game. We consider three coalition games that allow for the formation of multiple coalitions. The coalition games represent(More)
We analyze the formation of international environmental agreements (IEAs) employing the widely used concept of internal&external stability and suggest several modifications. Countries ́ objective functions are derived from from an integrated assessement model of climate change. We relax the assumptions of a single agreement and open membership rule. It(More)
In this paper we investigate emission trading within the EU and, more specifically, some proposals to impose ceilings on emission trading. We compare different proposals put forward by the EU negotiators at the international level in the framework of the Kyoto Protocol and apply them to intra-EU greenhouse gasses emission trading. It turns out that these(More)
In this paper we investigate the EU Burden Sharing Agreement on the distribution of the Kyoto emission reduction target over the EU member states. We use an inverse welfare optimum approach to compute the implicit weights making the Burden Sharing Agreement a welfare optimum for the EU. This methodology enables us to visualise the efficiencyequity trade off(More)
Both landfill taxes and Enhanced Waste Management (EWM) practices can mitigate the scarcity issue of landfill capacity by respectively reducing landfilled waste volumes and valorising future waste streams. However, high landfill taxes might erode incentives for EWM, even though EWM creates value by valorising waste. Concentrating on Flanders (Belgium), the(More)
We analyze stability of self-enforcing climate agreements based on a data set generated by the CLIMNEG world simulation model (CWSM), version 1.2. We consider two new aspects which appear important in actual treaty-making. First, we consider a sequential coalition formation process where players can make proposals which are either accepted or countered by(More)
