November 2013 - A New JIKO Policy Brief gives an overview of current pilot activities relating to new market-based mitigation instruments. The authors assess how these contribute to the development of New Market Mechanisms (NMM) under the UNFCCC and in particular on initiatives that embrace the concept of Sectoral Crediting Mechanism (SCM) as proposed by the EU. Based on a series of interviews, donor programs of the Worldbank, KfW, GIZ, NEFCO, the European Commission as well as Japan's Joint Crediting Mechanism were screened.
