Thus ET allows Parties to transfer and acquire the full range of Kyoto units.

This requires international negotiations to address Annex I Parties’ mitigation commitments for the post-2012 period. Many countries are sensitive about discussing the 2012 period because this will bring the question of US engagement to the fore as well as providing an opportunity for developing countries to contribute to the evolution of the Kyoto mechanisms and their role in the design of the future climate regime.
