Joint Implementation in the CIS: Market, Projects and Barriers

The Kyoto Protocol allows developed economies that domestically fall short of their target to contribute to compliance through cooperation with the Economies in Transition (EITs) through two routes. 'Joint Implementation' (JI) allows the generation and transfer of emission credits through investment in emission reduction projects. In addition, Parties can transfer part of their total 'Assigned Amount Units' through international emissions trading.

The research tasks of the project are:
   to analyse the development of the institutional framework for Joint Implementation approval and Kyoto compliance in Russia and other CIS countries.
   to assess the potential of JI through an analysis of JI projects offered until now.
   to evaluate the JI projects offered based on a set a criteria.
   to assess the quality of project hosts and project providers.
   to explore the barriers to JI.
