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.
