THE DIALOGUE

 
     
 
Thursday, 16 November 2006
 
 
 

12:00 am - 1:30 pm
Realizing the full potential of market-based opportunities

  • Presentations
    • An EDF contribution to the dialogue: sharing experience on climate change, development, and policy instruments (Ms. Claude Nahon – Electricité de France)
    • Africa’s developmental aspirations, the energy challenge and maximizing opportunities (Ms. Mandy Rambharos – ESKOM)
  • Exchange of views among Parties on concrete actions that would capture the full potential of market-based opportunities

Questions:

  • What is the full potential of market-based opportunities? How can this potential be realized, including by building on the experiences with the Kyoto Protocol and emerging national/regional greenhouse gas (GHG) emission trading schemes? Are there novel market-based approaches that have not yet been deployed that could contribute to action on climate change?
  • What is the potential of sectoral approaches?
  • How effective are economic instruments, such as eco-labels, standards, subsidies and taxes and incentives in influencing voluntary action, consumer choice and promoting investment in less GHG intensive activities?
  • What innovative ideas could be developed to engage business in such a way that significant private sector capital is unlocked and the gaps in the innovation chain are addressed?
  • What is the potential of various approaches to provide positive incentives for climate action?
