December 2009. What improvements will be proposed to the Kyoto
Protocol? What will be the major obstacles to an agreement? What
lessons have been learned from the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM),
Joint Implementation JI), the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) and
other trading schemes, such as the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative
(RGGI) and the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX)? What is the future of
the growing multi-billion dollar annual emissions trading market? This
