Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV)
In order to achieve the two-degree target set out in the Paris Climate Agreement, several countries are considering introducing a carbon price as part of the implementation of their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). Market-based climate protection through emissions trading offers the opportunity to reduce emissions cost-effectively. This is another reason why an increasing number of countries and regions are interested in introducing an emissions trading system (ETS), especially emerging and developing countries.
The Federal Ministry of the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) wants to disseminate knowledge, practical experiences, and best practices on the topic of emissions trading and to support countries in setting up their own national emissions trading system. To achieve this, it has already successfully implemented this, as well as a predecessor project of the same name.
The project, coordinated by adelphi, supported the Federal Ministry of the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety in bilateral capacity building activities in the field of emissions trading. To this end, adelphi, together with its partners Ecologic Institute, FutureCamp and Öko-Institut e.V., developed information and teaching materials on emissions trading and were responsible for the conception and implementation of events, trainings, study tours, workshops and consultations of foreign experts in Germany and in selected target countries.
