Good Practice: China ETS pilots, carbon markets

Seven ETS Pilot schemes were successfully implemented across different cities/provinces in China in order to pave the way for a domestic ETS system. The pilot cities/provinces are different in terms of economic structure and development, the corresponding MRV systems reflect the specific needs of each pilot ETS. This good practice case study focuses on the pilots and lessons learned from the design and implementation of pilot phase and how these contributed to rules and procedures for the national system.
