Professor Stavins explained how the global commons dilemma provides a disincentive for action on climate change by individual countries since the climate benefits they gain individually would be less than the cost of action, while on a global basis the benefits could be much greater. Stavins argued that carbon taxes or cap-and-trade systems are the most effective solutions to reduce emissions.

Project Director Robert Stavins noted at a COP-20 event that the U.S.-China announcement begins the real fulfillment of the promise of the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action.
