Summary Following international agreement on the Kyoto Protocol in December 1997, there is now a serious prospect of trading greenhouse emissions on a global scale. The Protocol has the potential to affect international economies in an unprecedented way, and few details are available as to the form that emissions trading schemes might take. International negotiators are faced with the problem of settling the framework for emissions trading without knowing the potential effects and pitfalls that may arise in practice. The major aim of this publication is to service as a source of information and ready reference for negotiators at international conferences
