LONDON, 6 July - The final chapter of IETA’s oral history of the carbon market, looking at the road to Paris and beyond, is released today.
The closing video chapter of From Kyoto to Paris, available online, focuses on the Paris Agreement and the outlook for carbon markets in the coming years – particularly in China.
“The future for carbon markets is truly exciting, with new initiatives emerging around the world – and this is set to increase as the Paris Agreement starts to be implemented,” says IETA President and CEO Dirk Forrister. “It’s been a rollercoaster 19 years since the Kyoto Protocol was agreed – we hope the lessons captured by From Kyoto to Paris stand us in good stead for the next 19.”
Previous chapters have focused on markets and the Kyoto Protocol, early experiments with emissions trading, the growth of the EU ETS, the CDM and carbon funds. All seven video chapters are available on our dedicated web page, www.ieta.org/kyototoparis.
The book will shortly be available via Amazon; please email firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure you don’t miss out on this year’s essential summer reading!
