The European Commission on Nov. 14, 2012, published a study on design options for the new market mechanism agreed under the UN climate change convention. The study, carried out by a consortium of consultants, will assist the Commission in negotiations at the forthcoming Doha climate conference on setting up the new mechanism, which was agreed to at last year's conference.

The study outlines three alternative design proposals for the mechanism and assesses the potential for implementation in five case studies. It includes recommendations for sectoral crediting and trading.
