Flexible mechanisms for monitoring greenhouse gas emissions

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing the world. The task at hand - reversing the trend of increasing global greenhouse gas emissions will require rigorous measures from all the countries of the world.

The Kyoto Protocol introduced three market-based flexible mechanisms, Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), Joint Implementation (JI) and Emission Trading (ET), as an additional means of meeting the targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
