International Carbon Action Partnership
On October 29, 2007, leaders of more than 15 governments met in Lisbon, Portugal to launch the International Carbon Action Partnership (ICAP). ICAP members are countries and regions - including regional approaches in the US - that have implemented or are actively pursuing the implementation of carbon markets through mandatory cap and trade systems. The partnership provides a forum to share experiences and knowledge. Sharing and evaluating best practices will help ICAP members determine the extent to which their respective programs can be supported by, and or benefit from, the ICAP process.
