ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to analyze the policy coherence of the Korean Emission Trading Scheme in the era of climate change. In order to evaluate the policy coherence, four dimensions were constructed by combining policy and administrative dimensions. These four levels of policy coherence combinations were evaluated for contextual coherence and normative coherence, which are eventually divided into eight dimensions. The results showed that the contextual coherence at each quadrant was high both in the external- vertical and internal-horizontal dimension, intermediate in the external-horizontal dimension and low in the internal-vertical dimension. The normative coherence of all dimensions was evaluated to be over 70% at an absolute level. However, if we look at the precedence of each dimension, the normative coherence at the internal-vertical dimension is the lowest, while the normative coherence at the internal-horizontal dimension is the highest. Overall, this study emphasizes the importance of the policy coherence of K-ETS at both internal-vertical and external-horizontal dimensions.
