This meeting was intended as a brainstorming session with invited stakeholders and policy makers which took stock of the decisions taken on the EU ETS Phase 4 review and brainstormed on the outline and issues to be covered in the 2018 State of the EU ETS Report. 

 

The 2018 State of the EU ETS Report is a joing effort between ERCST/ICTSD, Nomisma Energia, I4CE and the Wegener Centre at the University of Graz.

The brainstorm sessions were focussed on three broad topics:

  • Market functioning of the EU ETS
  • EU ETS and the transition to a low-carbon economy
  • Carbon Leakage and competitiveness

For each topic, we had a limited number of panellists discussing the main issues and recent developments, and give their view on what should be covered in the Report. We then proceeded with a roundtable discussion and closed each session with a short wrap up.

This workshop will feed into the project “Developing the EU long-term climate strategy” that aims to provide a “roadmap” for the development and delivery of a long-term decarbonisation strategy for the EU. The project itself will deliver two products: A Technical paper and a Policy paper.

The Technical Paper will describe all potential choices that can be made in the new long-term climate strategy, with an in-depth analysis of the trade-offs implied. This will include the main elements that will need to be considered in reviewing the current 2050 Roadmap, and will also cover the process that should be used in the development and the delivery of the new roadmap.

The Policy Paper will present different bundles of inherently consistent set of choices that may serve as basis to build the new roadmap.

The workshops that are part of the project will discuss key choices to be made in a new decarbonisation strategy document. This event will feed into the project, and it is organized in cooperation with the French Direction Générale de l’Energie et du Climat, of the Ministère de la Transition Ecologique et Solidaire.  A minimum of four other workshops will be held in other EU capitals over the next few months.

Given the amount of information and issues for discussion we decided that all workshops will cover certain crucial elements and the general structure. However, to ensure that an in-depth discussion is possible, each workshop will focus on a selected number of issues (as identified in the agenda below) which will vary from workshop to workshop.

This project is a joint initiative of Bruegel and ERCST/ICTSD, and is made possible by grants from the Governments of France, Denmark, Sweden, as well as the European Climate Foundation, Climate-KIC, ENEL, EdF and Shell.

Article 6 of the Paris Agreement (PA) addresses the issue of “cooperative approaches” under the Paris Agreement. A significant part of it aims to create the framework to ensure that international markets can be a tool to meet National Determined Contributions (NDCs) under the PA.

 

After COP 21 in Paris, negotiators have a mandate to create a rulebook to ensure that this, and other parts of the PA become operational. Negotiators are aiming for completing this task in 2018 at COP 23.

This side event is an opportunity for stakeholders to be briefed by and enter in discussion with some of the most knowledge participants in these negotiations to understand the progress and challenges  towards the implementation of Article 6 of the PA.

The Paris Climate Agreement adopted in December 2015 recognises cooperative approaches as an important element in the climate change mitigation effort.

Article 6 of the Paris Agreement includes several privisons 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 is a continuation 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. The 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 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.
