The Kyoto Protocol sets out binding emission reduction targets for the industrialized countries, including economies in transition. It also introduces the so-called 'Kyoto Mechanisms' to help meet these targets in 'flexible' and cost-effective ways. The Russian natural gas sector will be an important player in Russia's achievement of its own target (stabilization at 1990 levels) and in the emissions trading and joint implementation markets. This book analyses Russian climate policy and the special place of the natural gas sector and its potentially powerful combination with the Kyoto Mechanisms.
