Where: Diplomatic Club, Doha, Qatar
What: This complementary breakfast event draws together governments that are in the process of designing domestic emissions trading and/or offset schemes for both voluntary and future regulatory requirements. Carbon markets have ventured beyond the borders of the traditional vision of an international carbon market framework. Globally, we now observe as countries take action by employing a variety of markets and market-like mechanisms to control their carbon emissions. Both developing and developed nations are “borrowing” from existing programs and
infrastructures developed within the carbon markets and recognising the necessity of engaging the private sector to ensure long-term feasibility.
In our 3rd Carbon Market Assembly we discuss the choices and implications of carbon offsetting mechanisms employed by different governments and the key decision points that are common to all programs at various stages of implementation. The event will host governments that will outline their experiences alongside private sector experts panel to give commentary on differing approaches to the emerging schemes.
This dialogue will be informed by a survey of emerging domestic program actors and experts. The survey follows from the survey-based
report launched by Ecosystem Marketplace in partnership with IETA’s International Carbon Reduction and Offset Alliance and the Carbon
Markets and Investors Association in March 2012. Bringing it Home: taking Stock of Government Engagement with Voluntary Markets profiles 13 early mover jurisdictions’ domestic GHG mitigation policies – and the program design choices they made that incentivise projects and private sector engagement.
