dc.description.abstractEconomic models suggest that in many cases, market leakage rates of greenhouse gasabatement reach the two-digit percentage range. Consequently, the Marrakesh Accordsrequire Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects to account for leakage. Despitethis, most project proponents neglect market leakage for their project, because the influenceof an individual project on market prices seems to be negligible. Insufficient leakageaccounting is facilitated by a lack of theories and applicable proposals regarding thequantification and attribution of leakage effects. The aim of this paper is to develop aproposal for the attribution of market leakage effects to CDM projects. To this purpose,we identify the transmission mechanisms for CDM project leakage, investigate the currentpractice of leakage accounting, and analyse alternative attribution methods forleakage effects that are transmitted through price changes. We find that project-specificapproaches must fail to take account of such leakage effects. Consequently, we proposeto estimate aggregate market leakage effects and attribute them proportionally to individualprojects. Our proposal is based on commodity-specific leakage factors which canbe applied by project developers to any emission reductions that are associated with aproject?s leakage-relevant demand or supply changes. The proposal is conservative, equitable,incentive compatible and applicable at manageable costs.en_US
