To meet their national greenhouse gas emission commitment under the Kyoto Protocol, governments need to implement domestic policies to limit or to reduce emission by various sources. This document describes four categories of domestic policies for managing greenhouse gas emission: domestic emissions trading, including credit trading, allowance trading, emission rights trading and substance trading; emission fee or tax; regulations; and other policies, including energy auditing and pollution prevention plans, utility demand-side management programs, procurement programs, and financial incentives. It also examines the potential use of the Kyoto Protocol mechanisms with the different types of domestic policies.
