Green Investment Schemes: Maximizing their benefits for climate and society

Project status: 
Completed

Green Investment Schemes could serve as an alternative instrument for funding projects and programs that other international carbon finance mechanisms (such as Joint Implementation) have not been able to deliver, and as a testing ground for the development of future flexible mechanisms for mitigating global climate change. The purpose of this project was to investigate how the flexibility of GIS can be best utilized for maximizing benefits to climate and society, whilst ensuring that environmental integrity is not compromised at the expense of simplicity and flexibility.

Key outputs:

Report on Green Investment Schemes and maximization of their benefits for climate and society, synthesis report and executive summary of the research, case study on Green Investment Schemes in Hungary.
