Presents a statement prepared in consultation with about 30
European NGOs that begins with a position against the concept of
joint implementation for credit under the Climate Convention.
Includes two papers by outside researchers that provide a
scientific basis for the position.
for Joint Implementation Under the Framework Convention on
Climate Change, K. Ramakrishna, Ed., 58 pp., May 1994, no

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.

Discusses nine basic functions a joint implementation regime
might serve, ranging from monitoring and verification to bringing
interested parties together. 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
