Presentamos evidencia empírica sobre convergencia en magnitudes medioambientales para países
desarrollados y en vías de desarrollo. Además, partiendo de un modelo standard "putty-clay" de
uso de energía, introducimos un stock de contaminación sobre el que se fija un objetivo de reducción
de emisiones. El análisis teórico ofrece indicaciones sobre qué variables deberían ser objeto de
futuros acuerdos de reducción de emisiones entre países heterogéneos.
We present some empirical evidence on convergence of environmental magnitudes for a pool of
developing and developed countries. Additional, we enlarge a standard model of energy use with
putty-clay technology in order to allow for a stock of pollution, on which a target on emission reductions
is set out in finite horizon. The theoretical analysis offers some insights on what variables
should serve as basis of emission reduction target agreements among heterogeneous parties.
