Description:The Netherlands government (ministry of Economic Affairs) is an active participant and contributor to the World Banks Prototype Carbon Fund which began operation in early 2000 to help developing countries invest in technologies to curb greenhouse gas emissions. The $180 million new fund, launched by the World Bank, is financed by industrial nations and corporations which will receive emissions reduction certificates.

This measure is part of Netherlands Climate Policy Plan Part II.
