Abstract: Tackling climate change is increasingly recognized as a policy challenge of utter importance. One of the most interesting and innovative building blocks in the Kyoto Protocol climate regime is the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). Since its inception, this so-called flexible mechanism has evolved into a volatile and booming market for the first internationally traded commodity created by an international environmental agreement, certified emission reduc-tions (CERs). During the process of market establishment and its functioning, private actors such as companies, project verifiers, carbon funds and CER traders have become leading actors in the global CDM market. Although the market continues to be intimately policy dependent as demand derives from the stringency of emission allocations and future nation state commitments for greenhouse gas reductions, this article investigates the transformation of a market that has been initiated by public actors, kick-started by public-private partnerships (PPPs) and that has evolved into a market in which governments are withdrawing and private actors are increasingly taking up their governance function.

Abstract: The financial sector has become an important part of the carbon markets and the clean development mechanism (CDM) of the Kyoto Protocol. The governance of the CDM is an innovative model where private and public bodies work together under the supervision of an intergovernmental body, the UNFCCC secretariat. The functioning of the CDM has moved away from the original intent of a developmental objective (Paulsson, 2009) towards more inclusion of the financial sector. The carbon markets have also been relatively not much affected by the financial crisis even if fears have been raised of « sub-prime carbon » (FOE, 2009). But is the financialization of carbon markets undermining their environmental integrity? And what are the consequences of the financialization in the CDM? We inquire the financialization of carbon markets using actor-network theory and cultural political economy literature and by looking at three caracteristics in carbon markets and the CDM in particular : mobility of individual and organizations, implication by the actors and the nature of financial tools used. We show that this financialization demonstrate an important shift in the political authority but that authority can only be exerced with the right political signal.
