This chapter evaluates the effect of a constraint on the rate of temperature change for the determination of policies. It proposes a climate policy assessment within a cost-efficiency framework using constraints referring to global mean temperature rise. The chapter also explores integrated assessment models in the context of climate stabilization and considers optimal climate policy under uncertainty on climate sensitivity.

Keywords:   temperature change, climate policy, temperature rise, climate stabilization, uncertainty, climate sensitivity
