Greenhouse Gas Emissions Trading and Project‐based Mechanisms: (Complete Edition ‐ ISBN 926410576X)
Abstract:Greenhouse gas emissions trading and project‐based mechanisms for greenhouse gas reduction are emerging market‐based instruments for climate change policy. They are also increasingly viewed as cost‐effective, flexible and environmentally efficient instruments for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Experience in the application of these instruments is rapidly developing. While OECD countries are at the forefront of these developments, there is also much activity in transition and developing economies.
This book presents a selection of papers from an international workshop co‐sponsored by the OECD and Concerted Action on Tradeable Emissions Permits (CATEP), to discuss key research and policy issues relating to the design and implementation of these instruments. The papers cover the experience of developing and transition countries with greenhouse gas emissions trading and project‐based mechanisms. In addition, the papers examine the use of tradeable permits in policy mixes and harmonisation of emissions trading schemes, as well as transition issues relating to greenhouse gas emissions trading markets.
