Border measures have made headlines in recent months as countries pursue policies that square global climate action with international economic activity. These measures aim to create a more even playing field across international trade by preventing leakage of economic activities away from countries with ambitious climate policies.

This virtual RFF Live event taps experts across three continents to discuss recent border measure proposals across the European Union and in the United States. As conversations unfold at COP26, join us for this webinar next week on Tuesday, November 9, to explore border measures and their impact on competitiveness, carbon leakage, and economic activity in developing countries.
