From 19-28 March 2012, the International Carbon Action Partnership (ICAP) will convene a Training Course on Emissions Trading for Emerging Economies and Developing Countries in Alajuela, Costa Rica.
Following the successful ICAP Summer Schools held in previous years in Berlin, the Hague, Beijing, and Madrid, the course is designed for 25 to 30 carefully selected policy makers and other stakeholders from the nongovernmental, academic, and the private sector. It will convey an in-depth understanding of emissions trading as an instrument to mitigate greenhouse gases, and build capacity on the technical design and implementation of carbon trading systems.
Over the span of one and a half weeks, participants will have ample networking opportunities with each other and with the teaching faculty, composed of representatives from ICAP members and other recognized experts in the field. Alumni work will help promote active virtual discussions among participants beyond the duration of the course.
Participation in the Alajuela training course is open to applicants from Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Uruguay, and Venezuela.

A similar course, the ICAP Summer School 2012, will take place in July 2012 in Ireland. It will be open to applicants from around the world. More information will be posted on the ICAP website in due course.
