  • Abstract: In an attempt to slow down and stabilize the pace of climate change, most countries have ratified the Kyoto Protocol. So far, several international markets for carbon permits have emerged. The existence of a trading mechanism allows most GHG abatement to occur in those sectors of the economy in which it is cheapest - achieving the cap with the lowest possible economic impact. This research will evaluate the relative effectiveness of the few existing trading schemes and their relative efficiencies. An expected outcome will be a recommendation of a trading scheme that is most applicable to Australia's circumstances.
