Thesis Abstract

In my research, I pursue a theoretical and empirical understanding of how innovation and international trade interact with measures to cope with climate change. My first and second chapter address mitigation and adaptation of climate change by focusing on innovation of adaptation technology as a response to natural disasters, and as a determinant of international cooperation on mitigation. In the third chapter, I explore the impact of international trade on international cooperation and unilateral initiatives on mitigation.
