This article assesses a vital aspect of the flexible mechanisms of the Kyoto Protocol: the rules governing participation in the carbon market created by these mechanisms, and the effects of non-compliance with applicable legal provisions. Part one of this two-part article described the flexible mechanisms of the Kyoto Protocol with a view to rules on market access, participation and eligibility. It proceeded to discuss suspension of eligibility to use the flexible mechanisms, starting with a description of the Kyoto Protocol’s compliance mechanism, and then drawing on the recent proceedings against Greece to
assess the implications and consequences of ineligibility. In this second part, the author resumes her analysis by identifying the relevant legal provisions and their interpretation. She concludes with an examination of the evolving role of the Kyoto mechanisms beyond 2012.
