In response to climate change, countries across the world are assessing different approaches to mitigate their country’s carbon emissions. One such approach is developing carbon taxes (CT). The purpose of this paper is to assess the effectiveness of such taxes in decreasing carbon emissions in countries with a Human Development Index scores less than 0.8. Furthermore, a comparative analysis between these is necessary to determine how effective each carbon tax has been and provide policy recommendations for other less developed countries seeking to mitigate carbon emissions.
