China carbon market to launch as early as November

According to reports, China will launch its nationwide carbon emissions trading system by November at the "very earliest."

A government researcher told Reuters on Tuesday 6 June that the nationwide emissions trading platform – which forms part of the nation’s Paris Agreement commitments – will be launched later this year.
Cyril Cassisa's insight:
It was announced for 2017. But is the goal to have a full operational national carbon market this year? I do not think so. It would be more to have a clear national regulation with fix and transparent policy design. Then provinces would join national market little by little. ???

Climate change: 'Monumental' deal to cut HFCs, fastest growing greenhouse gases - BBC News

Climate change: 'Monumental' deal to cut HFCs, fastest growing greenhouse gases - BBC News | Climate change negotiations and cooperations | Scoop.it
Countries meeting in Rwanda have agreed a "monumental" deal to phase out gases used in fridges that are worsening global warming.
Cyril Cassisa's insight:
Like the Paris Climate Agreement, this HFC amendement of Montreal Protocol seems ambitious regarding what it is writing on paper. However, concrete reduction actions are always planned to late and leave huge uncertainty on what will happen and on the accuracy to reach the long term goal. 
As Paris, the good point is that all countries commit. Hope that they will stay in forever (or as long as possible). :)

Putting a price on CO2 is one of the most effective ways to tackle climate change - at least in theory - but which county has the highest carbon price?

While extending its coverage worldwide, carbon prices remain too low to accelerate significantly the needed energy transition! But it is a first step, with a carbon pricing instrument in place, policy makers can now show us their climate change commitments by rising prices.
