Abstract This chapter identifies a number of issues that arise when carbon pricing coverage is incomplete. These include unexploited cheap options for GHG emissions reduction, carbon leakage and competitiveness concerns. A number of policies that have been suggested to address these issues, such as countervailing duties on imports or border tax adjustments and free allocation of permits (‘grandfathering’), are closely examined. The chapter also assesses the role that Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD) can play, and discusses the main implementation issues and options for financing mechanisms for REDD.
