Blockchain and Emerging Digital Technologies for Enhancing Post-2020 Climate Markets

We are pleased to share with you the World Bank publication ‘Blockchain and emerging digital technologies for enhancing post-2020 climate markets’, produced by the World Bank Carbon Markets and Innovation Practice which we co-authored/peer reviewed along with other experts.
This paper outlines the potential opportunities blockchain and related digital technologies could bring to meet the anticipated needs of post-2020 climate markets, as well as the challenges that need to be addressed to seize these opportunities.

As is BLOC, the World Bank Group is also currently working on a range of blockchain-related use cases designed to develop expertise with blockchain/distributed ledger technology, to explore potential applications and test out the viability of solutions, in order to better assist member countries and clients to understand and potentially harness these emerging technologies.
