In this 45-minute webinar, ETS and developing countries, guest speaker Duan Maosheng (Tsinghua University) will comment on China’s pilot carbon markets and experiences in becoming ETS “market ready.” He will provide unique examples of capacity gaps that were overcome and others that remain a challenge. For those currently taking the European Commission’s online course, this topic is most relevant to Units 6 and 13.

Host Elizabeth Zelljadt (Ecologic Institute) will provide course context and facilitate a question and answer session between the guest speaker and participants.

If you are unable to participate, a recording of each webinar will be made available here and on the course website.

The course and guest-speaker webinar series is a project of the European Commission.
