Financial support for developing countries is a core issue under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Industrialised countries strongly emphasise the potential role of carbon markets in mobilising needed finance. The research project “Analysis of the Role Carbon Markets Can Play for Global Climate Finance from Today to 2020 and Beyond“ aimed at providing an analysis of and recommendations for how carbon markets can contribute to financing emission reductions in developing countries.
This report summarises the main findings from the project. The detailed results are available in the second and third interim reports of the project, which are annexed below. The project’s findings were discussed at a project workshop, the documentation of which is also annexed below.
