Voluntary Carbon Markets: How can they Serve Climate Policies?
AbstractIn this paper, we aim to examine how voluntary carbon markets can provide a valuable contribution to strengthening domestic and international climate policies. Voluntary markets are defined as small and unregulated segments of an established carbon market that are driven by voluntary offsetting of GHG emissions. Ce document vise à examiner comment les marchés volontaires du carbone peuvent contribuer utilement à renforcer les politiques climatiques nationales et internationales. Il s’agit de petits segments non réglementés d’un marché du carbone bien établi qui reposent sur la compensation volontaire des émissions de GES.
