International Workshop on Establishment of Carbon Market: Learning From International Experience, Planning for the Future

11 Sep 2014 Tianjin, The People's Republic of China

This emissions trading workshop was jointly organized by ADB and the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) of the PRC. The forum aimed to: (i) update and share knowledge and expertise on developments with the emissions trading scheme (ETS); (ii) discuss possible approaches to building a national system based on the practical experiences and lessons from pilot schemes in the PRC and other countries; and (iii) discuss the feasibility of linking systems between ADB’s developing member countries (DMCs).  

More than 90 representatives from the PRC and DMCs attended the workshop. Policy makers and personnel from the seven pilot ETS in the PRC, the European Union, India, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Thailand, and Viet Nam, as well as representatives of the World Bank and other international organizations shared their experiences in policy and regulatory development, and methodologies and guidance for establishing or planning to establish a national ETS.
