Carbon Mechanisms Review (CMR) is a specialist magazine on cooperative market-based climate action. The magazine is published by the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy on behalf of the German Environment Ministry.
Carbon Mechanisms Review critically appraises developments on the Carbon Markets and contributes to the debate with analysis, opinion articles and backgrounders.
The focus is not restricted to the cooperative approaches under the Paris Agreement’s Article 6. Further topics include emission trading schemes worldwide and their offsetting provisions, project-based instruments such as Japan’s bilateral offsetting mechanism, (market-based elements of) nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs), and carbon pricing initiatives in general.
This is covered with a blend of editorial articles and guest contributions from highly regarded authors in the subject area. All articles undergo an editorial review process.
CMR appears quarterly and can be obtained free of charge.
