A carbon registry is required to perform two basic functions (i) determine the quantity of 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.

Among carbon pricing policy considerations for Ukraine is the application of a carbon tax to complement the ETS, either through the development of a new taxation system or by improving the existing one with or without changing its current sectoral coverage. In order to assess the impact of carbon tax as a pricing mechanism on the Ukrainian economy, a macroeconomic model will be developed. The study should take into consideration the interaction between carbon taxation and ETS and be coordinated with ongoing technical work in Ukraine with respect to developing an installation-level GHG emissions monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) system (also supported by the PMR project).

The Partnership for Market Readiness (PMR) is a forum for collective innovation and a fund to support countries to prepare and implement climate change policies in order to scale-up mitigation efforts. The PMR consists of 13 Contributing Participants, who provide financial support to the PMR Trust Fund and share their carbon pricing experience, and 19 Implementing Country Participants, who receive funding and technical support. In Thailand, the PMR supports the design of an Energy Performance Certificate scheme and prepares infrastructure such as a database and MRV system. PMR activities also include a study on the legal framework for an ETS and preparation of the Low Carbon City Program and Fund.

The objective is to develop Carbon Pricing Simulation Tool (CPST) to support policy makers in modeling GHG emissions and economic impacts of carbon pricing instruments (such as carbon taxes, emission trading schemes, and carbon markets), as part of NDCs and against the backdrop of international climate policy scenarios. The CPST will help analyze the role of carbon pricing alongside other actions.
More Countries Expand Carbon Pricing Efforts
BARCELONA, May 23, 2017 – The number of carbon pricing initiatives implemented or scheduled has almost doubled over the past five years, according to Carbon Pricing Watch 2017, a new publication released at the Innovate4Climate Summit today.
Since 2016, eight new carbon pricing initiatives have been put in place – three at a national level and five at a subnational level.
Last year, governments raised about US$26 billion charging for carbon emissions – a figure taken from “Carbon Pricing Watch 2016” jointly prepared by the World Bank Group and Ecofys. Ecofys is proud to be able to support the World Bank Groups key ambition to bring down global emissions and drive investment into cleaner options.
The past four years Ecofys has assisted the World Bank in writing the annual report State and Trends of Carbon Pricing. The report is the authoritative reference point for carbon pricing information and provides data and insights of the work of the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition. Recognized by the international community, the State and Trends report provides insights used for the climate negotiations and, in turn, reports on their progress. The 2016 edition will focus on the alignment of carbon pricing with other climate policies. While a future outlook was released in May, the full 2016 report will be published later this year.
