He calls upon governments to increase their emissions reductions targets, commit more financing, and ensure that mitigation is measurable, reportable and verifiable. Responding to fears that carbon taxes and cap-and-trade schemes could harm competitiveness, Gurría says that these concerns are exaggerated and that sharing green technologies and international co-operation can help level the playing field.
