Carbon Market Watch

Scrutinising carbon markets & advocating fair, effective climate protection


For two weeks in Doha, Qatar delegates from close to 200 countries negotiated the future of the planet at COP18 in Dec 2012. Carbon markets were an important topic. Decisions on the future of the CDM, the JI, AAU surplus and New Market Mechanisms were made.

Carbon Market Watch was in Doha to advocate for fair and ambitious climate solutions. Our main message for the climate negotiators in Doha was simple and clear. First and foremost countries must dramatically increase their pledges now to reduce emissions. Otherwise we will not stand a chance to prevent catastrophic effects of climate change. A summary of key decisions in relation to carbon markets can soon be found here.

Below is more information about our work and activities in Doha.
