'A collection of contributions by leading Australians in the field, this publication presents a range of perspectives on domestic and international r=trading of greenhouse emissions. Following an overview that provides readers with a high-level view of Article 17 of the Kyoto protocol and associated negotiations, the first chapter explains current Australian programs and policies with respect to reducing greenhouse emissions and generating carbon sinks.
Sectoral issues are addressed in chapters on the business perspective, prospects for Australian industry with clean development mechanisms in the Asia-Pacific region, the transport sector, and the international movement of people (including a possible means of tackling emissions from international aviation). A method of accounting for carbon sequestration in temporary sinks, such as tree plantations, is presented as an alternative to current provisions in the Protocol. Appendixes reproduces in full the Kyoto protocol and the FCCC, and provide values of Global Warming Potentials.'
