The International Carbon Action Partnership (ICAP) is an international forum of close to 40 governments and public authorities from around the world that have implemented or are planning to implement domestic emissions trading systems (ETS). ICAP supports member jurisdictions in sharing best practice and advancing the state of the art on ETS design and implementation. The work of ICAP focuses on the three pillars of technical dialogue, knowledge sharing and capacity building activities relating to emissions trading.
Transitioning to a low-carbon economy is a key imperative if humanity is to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. The required transition is most pressing and urgent in Asia, home to 60% of the world’s population, with some of the fastest-growing economies and largest emitters across the globe. Based in Berlin, adelphi is a leading global think tank and public policy consultancy working on all aspects of this challenge as well as broader climate, environment, and development challenges.
