This website belongs to a programme of training and capacity building for emission trading under the auspices of the International Carbon Action Partnership (ICAP), which the Ecologic Institute and partners have implemented since 2009. Supported by the European Commission, the programme seeks to provide participants from developing countries and emerging economies with knowledge to develop and implement emissions trading as a cost-effective policy instrument to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. A suite of formats help to improve local skills and expertise in the target countries, and thus to enable the establishment of emission trading systems. The various events include summer schools, regional training courses and master classes, where participants will get a comprehensive in-depth training on the design and implementation of emissions trading systems over a period of two weeks. In addition, smaller and more focused training activities in form of regional workshops, seminars and a webinar series are part of the programme.
The consortium is lead by the Ecologic Institute – a Berlin based independent think tank, which conducts inter- and transdisciplinary research in a wide spectrum of environmental topics. The Ecologic Institute can rely on a rich history of project work in the field of carbon pricing and emission trading systems. The institute has conducted a variety of studies and organized emissions trading events and trainings worldwide.
