Workshop on Carbon Market Design: Issues and Opportunities

The USDA Economic Research Service, Farm Foundation, NFP, and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission will co-host a workshop on carbon market design, bringing together policymakers, industry participants, NGO’s, and academics to discuss issues facing the establishment of efficient market(s) for carbon in the United States. Rather than focusing on existing legislation or political concerns, we intend for the forum to consider the lessons learned from existing carbon/environmental markets in order to inform policymakers about potential hurdles to the design of domestic carbon markets.

The workshop is free and open to the public, but space is limited and registration is required. Please register to attend.

An agenda that includes speaker bios and topic abstracts is available.
