Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 December 2020).
We invite you to contribute to the Special Issue “Cooperation, Innovation and Safeguarding of the Environment”.
As the issue of global warming is becoming increasingly severe, new collective strategies are essential to develop a new global climate policy. Thus, the safeguarding of the environment can be significantly improved if important aspects such as cooperation and innovation are considered. The global and international dimension of environmental problems requires multiple and heterogeneous methods of analysis appropriate to the several implications of the environment. To some extent, commitments to respecting nature will motivate countries to stimulate investment in new technology. However, there are large externalities or technological spillovers associated with such investments. Models of game theory applied to this problem must take into account that the agents can build their strategies combining cooperation and/or innovation aspects.
This Special Issue aims to bring together researchers from various disciplines (including but not limited to economics and applied mathematics) to collect a series of papers that will contribute toward theoretical, empirical and experimental approaches to explain how all the actions for efficient international environmental regulation can be encouraged in order to reduce pollution and to implement investments in new technologies. The Special Issue is particularly devoted to gathering some new game theoretic solution concepts and correlated equilibrium that face the environmental problems in an original way and interesting contributions that detail novel instruments able to encourage more efficient policy decisions.
