EU Pavillion – COP24
Wednesday 5th, 10:00-13:00 – (CMW Session 12:20 – 13:00)
The proliferation of carbon pricing policies over the past years has also seen a rise in the introduction of carbon markets as a key policy tool to meet NDC commitments. Nevertheless, NDCs, domestic emissions trading systems and offsetting mechanisms are being developed in a heterogeneous manner, reflecting the bottom up nature of the Paris Agreement.
This panel event will discuss opportunities and challenges in designing and harmonizing heterogeneous systems and mechanisms. New research on assessing and comparing emissions trading systems and offsetting mechanisms will be presented and discussed by a panel of business and NGO representatives.
Simon Henry, International Emissions Trading Association
Martin Cames, Öko-Institut
Gilles Dufrasne, Carbon Market Watch
Moderator: Lambert Schneider
The panel discussion will be followed by Q&A with the audience.
