New Zealands Ministry for the Environment released a discussion paper on the design of a domestic emissions trading regime for the country. "Technical Design Issues for a Domestic Emissions Trading Regime for Greenhouse gases" looks specifically at the questions that would have to be resolved in setting up an emissions trading system in New Zealand, including the unit of trade, allocation of certificates, and the sort of market used for trading, administrative issues, and transition considerations. Following a review of the climate change policy in 2005, the Government is pursuing the introduction of an emissions trading scheme (planned to become law mid-2008) for all sectors and all gases.
