Proceedings for a workshop (Jan. 1994, Bermuda). Reviewed 12 criteria proposed by the Interim Secretariat of the Framework Convention on Climate Change, and discussed several commissioned papers. The workshop concluded, for example, that as many strategies as possible must be mobilized toward stabilizing atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations, and that if properly structured, joint implementation can link environmental protection and development in a new, positive partnership.

A brochure developed from a discussion paper. If JI is to be successful, the rules must be well defined and the criteria crystal clear. Favors a test phase of about three years during which the avoided greenhouse gas emissions should be tracked but not counted. A fund to finance JI projects should come from investors wanting to buy CO2 credits.

Item #d95apr115

Consideration of different parties' expectations and the ways of meeting those expectations suggests a pilot phase of two-to-five years, using a step-by-step approach.
