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.
