This Final Report of the study: “Design options for sectoral carbon market mechanisms” includes an assessment of different elements and features for the design of the New Market Mechanism (NMM) under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Based on this assessment, three coherent packages of design elements have been compiled as proposals for the (potential) design of the NMM. These three design proposals have been analysed in five case studies, in which the emission reduction potential of the NMM has been assessed for several policy scenarios in certain country/section combinations. Next to the assessment of the emission reduction potential of the NMM, the project team has conducted interviews with carbon market observers and sector representatives to verify the feasibility of and to receive feedback on the design proposals. Each of the abovementioned elements will be discussed in different chapters (Chapter 3 – Chapter 6) within this Final Report.
