Gore, T. et al. (2021). What can Least Developed Countries and other climate vulnerable countries expect from the EU Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM)? IEEP, IDDRI, IEED, IISD, ODI.


This briefing explores the potential implications of an EU Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) for climate vulnerable countries. It looks at questions around:

  • strengthening the dialogue between EU and climate vulnerable country actors around CBAM;
  • ensuring CBAM has environmental integrity by avoiding double compensation for EU industries;
  • potential exemptions;
  • use of CBAM revenues and wider aid for trade measures to support low carbon transitions in climate vulnerable countries.
