ICAP is the only multilateral forum focussing on emissions trading schemes only, thereby allowing detailed technical discussions on design and compatibility issues.

ICAP brings together regional, national and sub-national governments to discuss crucial ETS design issues and the way forward for a global carbon market.

Technical Dialog: ICAP provides a forum where government representatives can compare the various designs of their schemes, exchange on challenges faced in the design and implementation of their ETS, and share lessons learned and best practices. To that end, ICAP holds regular technical workshops in closed or open settings, as well as public conferences on specific ETS design issues. See Technical Dialog

Outreach: By participating in ICAP outreach activities, ICAP members and observers can present their schemes and engage with international experts, fellow policy makers and/or other stakeholders from established and emerging ETS. See ICAP Courses and UNFCCC Side Events
