Abstract :

The book provides an in-depth analysis of how local semi-public agencies have performed in the diffusion process for spreading knowledge and capacity for the CDM. Based on extensive research of four provincial CDM centers, the analysis discloses how these agencies contributed to kick-starting the local Chinese carbon market. The surprising success of the CDM in China reveals how market mechanisms work out well even in countries with economies in transition and market actors that are public-private hybrids. The book concludes that the Chinese CDM center approach is a recommendable, but improvable model for other countries in need for local CDM capacity development. (© Miriam Schröder)
