The Kyoto Protocol requires countries to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. To help countries achieve their emission reduction targets, the Kyoto protocol introduced two market based mechanisms: The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and the Joint Implementation (JI).

The course provides a comprehensive overview of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and the Joint Implementation (JI). It was developed by WBI’s Carbon Finance Assist program and the Greenhouse Gas Management Institute.

The course is delivered in 10 modules which take about 20 hours to complete. It uses interactive presentations, case studies, and discussion forums. The course will enable participants to:
  • Understand all aspects of the Kyoto Protocol’s project based mechanisms
  • Understand the governance of these mechanisms
  • Start a CDM of JI project
  • Understand the CDM and JI Project Cycles and corresponding rules and procedures.

Target Audience:
This course is designed for carbon finance experts and practitioners, including project developers, technical consultants, decision makers, representatives of cities and civil society organizations.
