From 9 to 20 July 2012, the International Carbon Action Partnership (ICAP) will convene a Summer School on Emissions Trading for Emerging Economies and Developing Countries in Dublin, Ireland. Following the successful ICAP Summer Schools held in previous years in Berlin, The Hague and Madrid, the course is designed for 25 to 30 carefully selected policy makers and other stakeholders from the nongovernmental, academic and private sectors. It will convey an in-depth understanding of emissions trading as an instrument to mitigate greenhouse gases, and build capacity on the technical design and implementation of carbon trading systems. Over the span of two weeks, participants will have ample networking opportunities with each other and with the teaching faculty, composed of representatives from ICAP members and other recognized experts in the field. Alumni work will help promote active virtual discussions among participants beyond the duration of the course.
Participation in the ICAP Summer School 2012 is open to applicants from emerging economies and developing countries from around the world. The course will be conducted in English. Applications are to be submitted in English.
