Climate Finance at COP21 and After

Finance has emerged in the last few years in and outside the Conference of the Parties (COP) process as a key ingredient of climate policy design. It also appears to be a key sector for structural reform in order to align it with the new low-carbon horizon. This policy brief, by  Etienne Espagne, draws lessons from a discussion platform launched jointly by CEPII and France Stratégie in the four months leading to COP21 and analyzes three directions for future debates.

China is one of the countries most affected by RASFF rejections

There is an increasing trend in rejections of Chinese shipments over time (with a dip in 2009 related to the crisis) suggesting a positive correlation between Chinese exports and Chinese rejections at the Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF) border. The strong increase in the number of rejections in 2008 might suggest that at the beginning of the 2008-2009 crisis, inspections and rejections were used potentially in a protectionist way, i.e. to protect European producers from Chinese competition.
