Audit report concerning the Admin. of the Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Program by the Cal. State Air Resources Board & the 4 local air dist. Policies & practices they used resulted in the Moyer Program achieving less cost-effective emission reductions than it otherwise could have achieved. Calif. law impedes emission reductions by allowing the state board to set aside only 10% of Moyer Program funds for projects that operate in more than one dist. A higher cap could lead to projects having intended emission reductions with lower costs per ton. Also, the methodology the

'State and Trends of the Carbon Market 2004' examines the status of the emerging market for greenhouse gases emissions allowances and greenhouse gases emission reduction projects—the so-called "carbon market". Based on a database of 354 transactions, this study shows that the market has been growing steadily over the past years, with demand still heavily concentrated and supply shifting from Latin America to Asia. It also explores the determinants of the price of carbon, showing that, in the absence of a standard contract for the purchase of emission reductions, the structure of the transact

Climate change is one of the key challenges facing the international community. The world's industrial countries and those with economies in transition have, under the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, collectively agreed sharp limitations of their greenhouse gas emissions. Innovative provisions in this Protocol offer potentially cost-effective ways to meet these pledges. They allow investors - nations, as well as companies - to credit emission reductions they accomplish in foreign countries against their own commitments. The two schemes, Joint Implementation and the Clean Development Mechanism, will encou
