The European Union Emissions Trading Scheme: Criteria Evaluations & Lessons Learned
Canadian Institute of Resources Law

The IPCC strongly encouraged nations to pursue innovative approaches to reduce GHGs so that the world can avoid the deleterious effects of climate change on human lives, property and ecosystems.
