Harnessing Self-Interest to Realize the Double-Dividend? Achieving Other Environmental Benefits through Carbon Credits

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The article investigates whether the self-interest associated with generating carbon credits will necessarily realize other potential environmental benefits in Canada under the government's action Plan to combat climate change. The Plan endorses the domestic recognition of a private property right, in the form of carbon credits, as the principal vehicle for expanding national carbon sink capacity. The government, has emphasized however, that managing forests and agricultural soils to increase carbon stores will deliver other significant environmental benefits.
