Joint Implementation (JI) - Definition, glossary, details

JI is a mechanism under Kyoto protocol that allows developed countries or companies in these countries to invest and cooperate in projects related to reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and thereby share the emission reduction units (ERU).  The difference between clean development mechanism and JI is that in case of JI no new emission units are generated unlike the projects qualified under CDM. JI can be viewed as an investment for ERUs swap.
