Copenhagen - Beyond the Kyoto Protocol

Wednesday, Sep 16, 2009

The first commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol will end in 2012 and negotiations for a post-Kyoto agreement have been taking place since 2007. A final treaty is expected to be adopted in Copenhagen in December 2009. What improvements will be proposed to the Kyoto Protocol? What will be the major obstacles to an agreement? What lessons have been learned from the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), Joint Implementation JI), the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) and other trading schemes, such as the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) and the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX)? What is the future of the growing multi-billion dollar annual emissions trading market? This panel will provide insight into the major provisions of the international post-Kyoto climate change agreement, how the major obstacles to agreement may be overcome, and the future of emissions trading markets.
