Programme Description

After a three-year hiatus, the International Carbon Action Partnership (ICAP)  resumes in-person trainings with the 2022 edition of its flagship training activity, the two-week ICAP Summer School on Emissions trading

Emissions trading is a market-based instrument for climate change mitigation. From the EU to South Korea and from China to California, more and more jurisdictions around the world use emissions trading as a tool to achieve their climate goals. At the beginning of 2022, around 17 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions are covered by emissions trading systems (ETS). Emerging economies and developing countries around the world are taking steps towards developing such systems.

Over the course of two full weeks, participants will explore concepts and key elements of ETS implementation, through a mix of presentations from expert speakers and policy practitioners as well as interactive activities. Each session will draw on experiences from existing ETS to explain the main design choices for setting up an ETS and to convey solutions for their implementation. Over the course, participants will have ample opportunities to network with each other and with the teaching faculty, composed of representatives from ICAP members, carbon market professionals and other experts in the field.

This is an event organised in cooperation with the Ecologic Institute and Get2c on behalf of ICAP, the International Carbon Action Partnership. It is made possible through the generous support of the European Commission. Further information on the training.
