As plans for the establishment of emissions trading systems (ETS) emerge in various developing countries, prospects for creating a global carbon market seem to finally get in reach.
Links among ETS of every type of country will have to deal with several design issues, all of which raise several challenges that policy makers have to solve in order to establish working systems.
