The proposed TA aims to build on this success and continue to support DMCs and ADB's operations departments through the technical support facility with special focus on bilateral mechanisms amidst the increasing complexity of carbon market schemes particularly during 2013 and 2017 before a new global framework is in place. The TA will complement ongoing RETA 8223: Supporting the Use of Carbon Financing to Promote Green Growth in Asia & the Pacific which supports the (i) development of CDM projects and (ii) facilitation of linkages among domestic ETS. RETA 8223 does not support new forms of international carbon market mechanisms that are expected to emerge after the first commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol, e.g., bilateral carbon market. Bilateral carbon market is an emerging mechanism which not only helps GHG mitigation projects through carbon credits but, also supports them with technology transfer, concessional finance and other financial support.
