The Future of Carbon Markets in Major Asian EconomiesVIEW EVENT DETAILS
On the sidelines of the COP24 summit in Katowice, Poland, Asia Society Policy Institute (ASPI) in partnership with the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) and the Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership (CGP), is pleased to convene a roundtable on the future of carbon markets in major Asian economies.
Major Asian economies contribute roughly half of total global emissions; a share that is likely to increase as large South and Southeast Asian countries continue to develop. Carbon markets can be fundamental tools for enabling such development without rapid emissions growth, but they must be prioritized politically and deployed effectively. Given growing environmental and economic connectivity in Asia, countries at varied stages of development would also benefit from mitigation cooperation to yield offset credits and from exploring targeted market links across borders. This session will explore these issues while presenting the current state-of-affairs on carbon market trends in the Asia Pacific.
Please note a reception will follow the discussion.
