SUMMARY

Summary: The document contains the proceedings of the annual joint workshop of UNCTAD and the International Rubber Study Group on the opportunities and constraints of internalizing environmental costs and benefits in prices of rubber and rubber products, held in Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia. The background paper of the meeting and the discussion focus on two clusters: (i) Internalization of scrap tyre management costs; and (ii) Opportunities of carbon offset funding in the context of climate change for enhancing profitability of natural rubber production. On the first cluster, expert papers dwell on the North American and Malaysian experience on the use of economic and supportive regulatory instruments for internalizing costs of sound management of scrap tyres. On the second cluster, expert papers focus on the carbon sequestration potential of rubber trees, reflecting various agronomic and climatic conditions and risks, such as forest fires.
