Main Description
Trading mechanisms in relation to greenhouse gas emissions are emerging market-based instruments for climate change policy, and are increasing being seen as a cost-effective, flexible and environmentally efficient method for securing sustainable development. This publication contains a selection of papers from an international workshop, co-sponsored by the OECD and Concerted Action on Tradeable Emissions Permits (CATEP), held in Paris in March 2003. The papers consider key research and policy issues regarding the design and implementation of greenhouse gas emissions trading instruments, particularly in relation to the experiences of developing and transition countries.
