Greater cooperation through carbon trading could reduce the cost of climate change mitigation by 32 percent by 2030, according to a new World Bank report released at an international carbon event in Vietnam.

The report “A new approach for pre-financing ERPAs for household energy access programs” presents the concept for an innovative facility that provides financing ahead of the signing of an Emission Reduction Purchase Agreement (ERPA) and - if implemented – could substantially reduce the delivery risk of carbon credits and act as a model for repli

The report “The impact of INDCs, NAMAs and LEDs on Ci-Dev operations and programs” provides recommendations on how to manage the delivery risks of emission reductions, and opportunities after 2020.

International carbon offsetting can help reduce compliance costs in emissions trading schemes and at the same time support carbon mitigation projects in developing countries.

Question raised in Lok Sabha on Carbon Trading, 03/05/2016. To support India’s active participating in Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), the Government of India has set up the National Clean Development Mechanism Authority (NCDMA) for according Host Country Approval (HCA) to eligible CDM projects in the country.

This report aims to inform the current progress and lessons from the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM) and how they will contribute to the efforts in climate mitigation, especially for the Post-2020 to achieve the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) in the context of Article 6 of the Paris Agreement.

India's climate action plan ahead of the United Nations' Paris summit in December will come with sector-specific emphasis on emission reduction.

Heavy Duty Vehicles conforming to Euro IV and V standards frequently show poor real-world NOx emissions performance. Evidence indicates that new certification protocols in Euro VI resolve this problem, and Euro VI-compliant HDV NOx emissions meet expectations.

In many regions of the world, older, high-emitting vehicles account for a small percentage of the overall vehicle fleet but a disproportionately large share of total emissions. It is estimated that these vehicles may be responsible for more than 50% of particulate matter (PM) and black carbon (BC) emissions by 2020 (Yan et al., 2011).

This technical paper provides background information on the second review of the Adaptation Fund based on the terms of reference for the second review as annexed to decision 2/CMP.9, taking into account the deliberations and conclusions of the Subsidiary Body for Implementation at its fortieth session.
