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.

Article 6 of the Paris Agreement (PA) is often referred to as the “markets article”, but it is more than that. Indeed, it offers a framework for international cooperation between Parties to meet the goals and objectives of the PA. 

Understanding of the elements needed to operationalize Article 6 of the Paris Agreement (PA) has evolved since COP 21 through formal and informal discussions, through workshops as part of the UNFCCC process, and through Party submissions to SBSTA. 

This meeting is part of the project “Implementation of markets and non-markets provisions in the Paris Agreement” project, which aims 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. That is, to understand the options available to define rules, modalities and procedures on Article 6 of the Paris Agreement, as well as the consequences of adopting each option.

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.

This meeting, organised by ERCST in Brussels, aimed to bring together key stakeholders that are both affected by, and involved in managing,the negative social and economic impacts associated with the global transition towards a low-carbon society and economy. It was designed as a brainstorming session and will discuss the state of debate in Europe, and identify possible gaps between the EU, members state and international levels in the work to successfully manage the transition. 

The first panel aimed to illustrate how social and economic impacts caused by transitions have been dealth with in the past and present, and what we can learn from these examples and best practices. The second panel focused on the question to what extent the issue is being recognized and tackled by policy-makers and stakeholders, and how progress can be made, including in cooperation among different levels of policy-making.
