International Workshop on Emission Trading ProgramsPolicy Innovation and Business Opportunity

Conference Venue: NJU-JHU Chinese-American Culture Center, Nanjing University, Nanjing, China

Conference Time: November 09-12, 2008


The application of economic instruments is the latest development and trend in environmental policy reform and innovation. Emission trading, one of the most effective environmental economic policies, is being used effectively in addressing regional pollution problems and global environmental issues. During the 11th Five-Year Plan, with the urgent targets of energy-saving and emission reduction, the Chinese government has been actively developing the emission trading system. In this context, Chinese Academy of Environmental Planning, Ministry of Environmental Protection and School of Environment, Nanjing University, are jointly holding the International Workshop on Emission Trading Programs.


The main objective of the conference is to exchange domestic and international experiences of using market-based tools and emission trading policy in the arenas of water pollution control, air pollution control and climate change. On the other hand, policy suggestions will be provided in applying market-based tools in pollution reduction and enhancing its efficiency in China.
