The Paris Agreement recognises cooperative approaches as an important element in the climate change mitigation effort. Article 6 of the Paris Agreement includes several provisions to this end.

However, before the agreement enters into force, a substantial amount of work needs to be done. It is necessary to arrive at a common understanding and reach consensus on the concrete meaning of the various provisions in order to help ensure that the opportunities for collaboration are seized and effectively contribute to achieving the agreement’s goals. Moreover, operationalising the article will also require technical work, such as establishing the modalities and procedures for the new mechanism or defining the accounting guidance for internationally transferred mitigation outcomes. 

This side-event will convene climate negotiators for a dialogue based on informal discussions as well as exchanges at the SB 44, with the objective of helping to arrive at a common understanding on Article 6.

The event will take place on Wednesday, 9 November at 17:30-19:00 in the IETA Pavilion of the COP, located in the Business Hub of the Blue Zone.

The Paris Agreement recognises cooperative approaches as an important element in the climate change mitigation effort. Article 6 of the Paris Agreement includes several provisions to this end. However, before the agreement enters into force, a substantial amount of work needs to be done at the political and technical level in order to operationalise this article.

This meeting will be the third of the project “Implementation of markets and non-market provisions in the Paris Agreement”. It will bring together carbon market negotiators in an informal setting with the objective to explore, discover, explain and understand different points of view related to the issues in Article 6. That purpose is to understand the options available to define rules, modalities and procedures on Article 6, as well as the consequences of adopting each option. It will also seek to understand why the different views are held.  

The discussions are free and informal, and will be held under Chatham House rule. This process is totally separate from the UNFCCC negotiating process. There is no intention or mandate to produce any text or negotiate an outcome.

Participation is by invitation only.

The new climate change agreement, reached in Paris in December 2015, is to be further defined with rules, modalities and procedures by the Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC. Article 6, which covers markets and non-markets, is an important element in the Agreement, which will need a substantial amount of political and technical decisions to be taken before it can be implemented.

This meeting was the second meeting of the project “Implementation of markets and non-market provisions in the Paris Agreement”, which aims to create an informal atmosphere with the objectiveto explore, discover, explain and understand different points of view related to the issues in Article 6. That is, to understand the options available to define rules, modalities and procedures on Article 6, as well as the consequences of adopting each option. What is also very important is to understand why the different views are held.  

The discussions were free and informal. Discussions were held under Chatham House rule.

This process is totally separate from the UNFCCC negotiating process. There is no intention or mandate to produce any text or negotiate an outcome.

Participation was by invitation only.

The new climate agreement, reached in Paris in December 2015, covers markets and non-market approaches in Article 6. While this is an important achievement of the Paris Agreement, operationalising the article will require a substantial amount of political and technical decisions to be taken.

This meeting was the first meeting of the project "Forum on the implementation of markets and non-market provisions in the Paris Agreement (Article 6)". The informal discussion sought to explore, discover, explain and understand different points of view related to the issues in Article 6 of the Paris Agreement in order to contribute towards arriving at a common understanding so that the opportunities for collaboration are seized and effectively contribute to achieving the objectives of the Paris Agreement.

The scientific community gathered in Paris in July for the Scientific Conference “Our Common Future under Climate Change”. With just a few months to go until the pivotal 21st Conference of the Parties (COP21) of the UNFCCC, this was the largest forum for the scientific community to come together to discuss and address key climate change issues.

In this context, ICTSD and several other leading institutes organised a session to explore options for a restructured architecture for the 2015 climate agreement with the goal of strengthening governance and broadening engagement to deliver better outcomes.

As the limited progress to address the build-up of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions in the atmosphere over the last two decades since the launch of the Framework Convention on Climate Change has demonstrated, a successful global response to climate change will require a more wide-ranging set of actions and behavioural changes than national governments can generate on their own.

This parallel session therefore brought together various proposals for injecting new life into the global community’s response to climate change. This included establishing systematic links to the trade regime which can contribute to furthering climate action; creating a legal structure that provides a mechanism for engaging mayors, governors, premiers, CEOs and other civil society leaders to broaden engagement; and exploring options for a framework of plurilateral climate “clubs” to enhance cooperation among coalitions of the willing and drive more ambitious climate action.

The session was jointly organised by Yale University, Fondation pour les Etudes et Recherches sur le Développement International (FERDI), Centre des Etudes et de Recherches Internationales et Communautaires (CERIC), the Institut du développement durable et des relations internationales (IDDRI) and ICTSD.
