Worldwide, carbon markets play a vital role in supporting climate ambition. Amid the backdrop of COVID impacts and economic recoveries, growing attention is being paid to the promise of carbon markets to efficiently reach climate goals while simultaneously supporting other socio-economic objectives. Today's mature markets, hold years of experience. How are today's major carbon markets evolving and weathering the challenges of 2020? How are regions cooperating to strengthen market resiliency, address competitiveness concerns, and build cross-border alignment and alliances? And what's in store for emerging carbon markets?
