Working Paper
中国にとっての2019年と2020年の前半は、世界経済の鈍化、米中貿易摩擦の長期化、コロナ問題の勃発など、山積の課題に対処しなければならない時期であった。米中貿易摩擦の影響もあり、中国の2019年のGDPは前年比6.1%の成長に止まった。 2020年1月-3月におけるGDP成長率は、昨年同時期に比べ6.8%下落するなかで開催した中国第十三期全国人民代表大会第3次会議では、内需拡大、雇用安定にフォーカスした政策パッケージを成立させた。  コロナ対策に関連する予算措置規模は、9.2兆元(約147.2兆円)と推計され、「新エネ自動車の普及とEV充電スタンドの拡充」や次世代通信設備や5G技術などへの重点的な投資方針も決まった。  2020年以降における中国経済のGDP成長率が不透明であるため...

2005年に欧州でキャップ&トレード型の欧州連合域内排出量取引制度(EU ETS: European Union Emissions Trading System)が導入された。EU-ETSは世界で最も歴史の長いETS制度であり、世界の気候変動施策を先取りしたものとして、追随して行われている他の国内排出量取引制度のモデルにもなっている。EU加盟国間の大きな経済格差を含む複雑な事情と経済状況の低迷に対処する中、フェーズ1の実施からの14年間、現在に至るまで多くの課題への対処がなされてきた。しかしながら、試行錯誤的なものも含めて制度内容の変遷も大きく、非常に複雑な制度であることも否めない。 EU ETSに関しては、和文での文献、図書及びWeb上での情報は数多く存在し...
