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.
