Projected contributions of the Kyoto mechanisms and carbon sinks on the overall change of assigned amounts
These figures present relative and absolute projected changes in assigned amounts (Kyoto units) (annual averages of assigned amounts for the commitment period 2008–2012).
Countries are ranked according to their projected use of Kyoto mechanisms (as a share of base‑year emissions).
The Kyoto mechanism data presented here are based on information officially reported by Member States, which does not necessarily include all known sales and purchases of AAUs under international emission trading.
