About the Carbon Pricing Dashboard

The Carbon Pricing Dashboard was developed by the World Bank Group with the help of Ecofys in order to provide up-to-date information on existing and emerging carbon pricing initiatives around the world. It builds on the data and analyses of the annual State and Trends of Carbon Pricing report series .

This analytical initiative, part of the Carbon Pricing Intelligence program, complements other World Bank Group activities to advance well-designed carbon pricing systems around the world:

  • Created in 2011, the Partnership for Market Readiness (PMR) supports countries to assess, prepare, and implement carbon pricing instruments in order to scale up greenhouse gas mitigation. It also serves as a platform for countries to share knowledge and work together to shape the future of cost-effective climate change mitigation.
  • The Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition (CPLC) is a voluntary initiative launched at COP21 in Paris with the goal of catalyzing action towards the successful implementation of carbon pricing around the world. The CPLC brings together leaders from government, business and civil society to support the introduction of carbon pricing, share experiences and enhance global, regional, national and sub-national understanding of the emerging practices in the implementation of carbon pricing.
  • The Networked Carbon Markets (NCM) initiative works with governments, private sector, academia, and civil society to develop the tools, services and institutions needed to link international climate markets that accommodate a "patchwork" of different domestic climate actions. NCM and its partners have developed the Mitigation Action Assessment Protocol (MAAP) online interface, a tool that establishes a transparent and independent framework to help governments, project developers, investors and other relevant stakeholders to design, assess and compare the relative risks and performance of mitigation efforts across the globe.
  • The CF Assist Program was launched in 2005 to support capacity building and technical assistance for carbon markets, and has since evolved into a comprehensive program to help developing countries that seek assistance on improving policies and initiatives to combat climate change. It provides technical assistance, customized knowledge and capacity-building solutions. Last May, the Program launched the Innovate4Climate conference, a new global dialogue of government, multilateral, business, banking and finance leaders focused on shaping the next generation of climate finance and policy instruments.
