Welcome to the JIAG website
The Joint Implementation (JI) mechanism under the Kyoto Protocol has developed a project pipeline that is expected to generate 404 million tons of greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions in the period 2008-2012. Its central principle has proved simple and effective: countries under the Kyoto Protocol with capped emissions can trade project credits and reduce their total emission profile. The JI mechanism delivers low transaction costs, substantial benefits, and should be expanded in the next climate framework.
The Joint Implementation Action Group (JIAG) was formed in March 2008 to support the post-2012 negotiations with hands-on experience from market participants. The consortium of carbon market pioneers representing over 100 millions of tonnes of greenhouse gas emission reductions through JI projects constantly interacts with policy-makers and interest groups to communicate its views. The JIAG believes it is essential that JI is enhanced in the next climate agreement, maximize its potential as a project finance mechanism, creating incentives to reduce GHG emission in a wide range of sectors and among a broad range of actors. On this web-site you will find an overview of the JIAG's activities, its publications, policy papers, legal papers, information on how the JIAG works and how entities can support its activities by becoming a JIAG member.
