Watch session’s recording 


As the Partnership for Market Readiness (PMR) came to closure in June 2021, it was time to reflect on program achievements, learnings, challenges and how this valuable experience can help countries that are planning to implement carbon pricing, and programs like Partnership for Market Implementation (PMI) that are aiming to support countries with increasing readiness and implementation.  

This session presented the PMR journey, lessons, and challenges captured from country programs and processes, followed by a panel discussion by country participants on their experiences with PMR and takeaways for the future.
