Linking Emissions Trading Systems

4 WEEK ONLINE COURSE

-Registrations closed-

In the context of the Paris Climate Agreement, there is today a strong need for enhanced international cooperation fostering emissions trading around the world. Based on the research of the project called LIFE DICET – Deepening International Cooperation for Emissions Trading*, this training will provide a better understanding of the regulation of carbon markets and the implications for their possible integration.

The Linking Emissions Trading Systems online course combines scientific and policy expertise to learn about the relevance and challenges of linking emissions trading systems (ETSs). The objective of this 4-week online course (31 January-27 February 2022) is to translate into practical learning the issues discussed in the Carbon Market Policy Dialogue of the LIFE DICET project and to bring them to a wider audience.

The participants in the training will gain knowledge about the theory of ETS linking as well as on the state-of-play of existing ETSs. Special attention will be devoted to the six ETSs represented in the Carbon Market Policy Dialogue (those of California, Quebec, EU, Switzerland, China and New Zealand) and to the implications of differences in use of offsets and in measures to prevent carbon leakage for ETS linking. In addition, participants will be able to learn more about what policy reforms and governance mechanisms can facilitate carbon market integration.

Each week of the training includes recommended readings, quizzes, forum discussions, and a live class at the end. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with each other and with the instructors.


*LIFE DICET is a project co-financed by the EU LIFE Programme of the European Commission.
