Global Green Policy Insights - April 2012 edition

The past few months have seen some interesting developments in international green policy. In South Africa’s 2012 budget review, the Government confirmed that it will introduce the country’s much anticipated carbon tax from 2013. In other parts of the world, a series of national climate strategies have been unveiled, as Governments set out their plans to transition to low carbon economies and look to secure their energy futures. In this edition of Global Green Policy Insights, we feature the strategies of Chile, Scotland and the United Arab Emirates.
