Climate change is a threat of global dimensions requiring concerted action at the international level. Yet, in light of the slow progress in negotiations conducted under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, some states have started to pursue bilateral and regional cooperation on this issue. The EU-Korea Framework Agreement contains provisions calling for further cooperation between the parties to combat climate change and the purpose of this chapter is to explore the measures that could be taken by the parties in furtherance of this mandate. In particular, it looks at the possibilities for linking the EU and the future Korean emissions trading schemes, the creation of a crediting mechanism for so-called National Appropriate ‘Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) in Korea, and the consequences for the use of ‘carbon equalisation’ measures enshrined in ‘the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) Directive. In doing so, the chapter also consider the possible obstacles that may be posed by the trade rules to the adoption of climate change mitigation policies.
