eC2: Design of a National Registry System to Support Cost-Effective Greenhouse Gas Reductions in Sri Lanka

Deadline: 29-Aug-2018 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.)

A carbon registry is required to perform two basic functions (i) determine the quantity of index carbon units held by account holders and (ii) enable the exchange of carbon units between account holders. with the support from the Partnership for Market Readiness (PMR), the Government of Sri Lanka aims to design a national registry system for recording project or mitigation action details, registration and approval, reporting of monitoring data, and the transactional features of carbon units. The registry is an essential tool through which the success of the mechanism will be measured and improved. It will be used for all reporting, collecting, and checking purposes, storing compliance data and identifying any cases of enforcement. It will also track the emissions and trading activity for registered users over the life of a particular scheme.

The registry system serves two purposes. The first is data management: developing systems and processes to collect, organize and report data on both emissions and mitigation actions. The second function is the transaction registry, which would include facilitating voluntary cancellation of offsets and eventually linking with any domestic Carbon Pricing Instrument (CPI) or possibly different market mechanisms in other regions or countries.
