This workshop held in Bangkok is part of the Informal Forum on Implementation of Article 6 of the Paris Agreement under the UNFCCC process. The aim of this workshop was to create an informal atmosphere where the main objective is to explore, discover, explain and understand different points of view related to the issues in Article 6 of the Paris Agreement.

This meeting included a recap of where we left off in Bonn as SBSTA 48 and what were the main accomplishments for that session. Additionally, it summarised where we are compared to the timetable that the co-chairs have set up and what is needed from Bangkok to stay on schedule. This was followed by reactions from the participants.

The second panel focused on double counting and corrsponding adjustments and covered issues such as what gets to be adjusted, timming and how to use the information, among others. The following panels identified the linkages between Art. 6 and other elements of the PAWP and what would the packages for Art. 6.2 & Art. 6.4 would look like, as this would also help determine how the different elements in each package will work together. 

The meeting concluded with the priorities for COP 24 in Katowice, Poland this December.

The Paris Agreement officially entered into force on 4 November 2016 and aims to pursue "efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels”.

The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) agreed in early 2016 in Nairobi on a timeframe for its next major series of climate reports – including a special report in 2018 on the ramifications of a 1.5 degree Celsius increase in global temperatures above pre-industrial levels.

The IPCC has responded to this “temperature goal” by working on a special report on "Global warming of 1.5°C" that has been adopted by Governments less than 10 days ago in Incheon (Republic of Korea).

This report attempts to put in perspective, through the most recent scientific literature, the impacts of a 1.5°C world and related global greenhouse gas emission pathways to get us there.

But what policy implications does the 1.5°C target have, both globally and for the EU’s climate policy? How will it affect the new EU Long Term Climate Strategy, currently being developed by the European Commission, and how might it affect the potential enhancement of the EU’s NDC?

During this meeting, the IPCC 1.5°C report will be presented and the policy implications discussed in a roundtable setting with policymakers and stakeholders.
