Practical strategies to avoid overselling

, , | June 26, 2020

Under the Paris Agreement, states can cooperate to mitigate climate change and pur­chase or sell emission reductions internationally. A fundamental difference to the pre­vi­ous Kyoto Protocol mechanisms is that all countries have now mitigation pledges. Thus, if transferring countries sell too many emission reductions, they risk missing their own mitigation targets. A new study commissioned by the Swedish Energy Agency shows strate­gies that could be used to prevent such "overselling".

In order to finance large scale mitigation action, development banks blend climate finance with resources from international carbon markets. A team of experts is developing and analysing a range of solutions on behalf of the World Bank.
