Strategic interactions between the climate change policies of China and the United States are analysed using game theory. The role of policy spill-over effects and carbon leakages is emphasised. The case for supposing that substantive strategic constraints bind is examined. Where such constraints do bind policies are considered which offset such constraints thereby promoting the case for policy cooperation. Multi-country extensions, the role of ‘no regrets’ and adaptation policies as well as repeated and dynamic game formulations are discussed.
