The latest issue of the Carbon Mechanisms Review features a number of articles on initiatives paving the way for the transition of the market mechanisms of the Kyoto world into the new Paris framework.
The issue analyses the role that markets can play and the prerequisites for meaningful use of market-based instruments. The authors comment on selected elements of the negotiations texts and analyse the role that markets play in INDCs. Furthermore, the Carbon Market Platform for Strategic Dialogue, initiated by the G7, is presented.
The international carbon markets face a twofold challenge: currently operating projects suffer from the market crisis and many actually run the risk of being discontinued. At the same time, the future of the global Carbon Markets is being shaped in the UNFCCC negotiations. This issue of the Carbon Mechanisms Review takes up both challenges and reports on dedicated intiatives and features analyses and an interview with a UNFCCC negotiator.
What Role for Market Mechanisms in the 2015 Agreement? Flexible instruments pre and post 2020.
