Home > LAIKA Project > Objectives


The LAIKA project aims at:

  • make the methodological approach developped by the partners operational (Cartesio Guidelines);
  • upport the European and Italian institutions to activate a scheme which will allow to valorise the contributions of the local authorities towards the achievement of the objectives aiming at decreasing the gas emissions as foreseen by the Kyoto protocol and the EU Energy and climate package. This can be achieved through the definition of a cross-check procedure for the emission trading and the creation of a national register;
  • develop and check a methodology for the appraisal, evaluation, and assignment of economic incentives directed towards the voluntary decrease of greenhouse gas emissions, through the emission trading in the European, national and local calls for funding;
  • implement and simulate a voluntary market for the emissions generated during the LAIKA project lifespan.
