Sarkar co-authored the paper, entitled “The Benefits of the Kyoto Protocol to Developing Countries,” with Dr. John Swinton, from the University of Wisconsin at Madison.
The paper examines the constraints and opportunities offered to developing countries with the Kyoto Protocol, an international agreement between industrialized countries designed to limit greenhouse gas emissions.
According to Sarkar, the Kyoto Protocol relies on incentive-based regulations layered underneath a global cap on net emissions of greenhouse gases. Of concern to developing nations are the constraints the Protocol could place on future economic growth and development.
Sarkar received his master’s degree in economics and his doctorate in resource economics from the University of California-Berkley. He has been a member of the BHSU faculty since 2004.
