On 26 May 2016, the German Federal Ministry of Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) and ICAP co-hosted a side event on joint governance structures for linking. Benjamin Görlach, senior fellow at the Ecologic Institute, presented the findings of a report on the legal arrangements for linking, as well as the institutional frameworks for managing a joint carbon market. This was followed by a discussion with policymakers from Germany, New Zealand and Vermont.
