ICTSD/ERCST and EUI would like to invite you to the launch of their policy paper 'The EU's NDC after the Talanoa Dialogue', held on November 26 at the Permanent Representation of France to the EU in Brussels. 

ICTSD/ERCST and EUI have jointly been working on a project which provides the opportunity for a public debate on the possibility of increasing the ambition of the EU climate policy in the 2030 perspective. As final element of this project, a policy paper is being written outlining the various options to enhance the EU NDC which were assessed using a set of criteria developed by the project team and tested through surveys with key experts and stakeholders.  

Six 'Open Fora' were organised in the EU Member States in the weeks leading up to COP24 are part of this project. Here, local stakeholders were given the opportunity to discuss the different options of increasing the EU NDC and the criteria to assess them. A background paper proviced input for debate, and the outputs of these Open Fora are captured in the Policy Paper. 

During this event, the policy paper will be presented by the authors and commented on by key stakeholders, which will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A. 

 

This project has been made possible by the support from the governments of the Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany and France.

IETA and ICTSD held a joint workshop on Article 6 of the Paris Agreement in Glion, back-to-back with the Informal Dialogue on Article 6, organised by ICTSD. The workshop brought together IETA members and key UNFCCC market negotiators, presenting an unique opportunity to discuss Article 6 priorities and share private sector experiences with international carbon markets.

Participants had the opportunity to participate in a discussion on whay they view as the main issues related to Article 6.2 and 6.4. Business participants provided their views on what should be addressed at COP 24 in order for them to start exploring business opportunities related to the new emerging global carbon market under the Paris Agreement. 

This meeting also provided the opportunity to share experiences from a number of 'on-the-ground' experiences which are closely related to how Article 6 may function in the future, including the Japanese Joint Crediting Mechanism and the World Bank's Mitigation Action Assessment Protocol.

This workshop, held in Glion, is part of the Informal Forum on Implementation of Article 6 of the Paris Agreement under the UNFCCC process. This workshop followed the resumed SBSTA 48 Session held in Bangkok. Article 6 negotiations are carried out under Agenda Item 11. A joint reflection note by the presiding officers of APA, SBSTA and SBI was produced after the resumed SBSTA 48 which outlines the progress made to date and identifies ways forward, inclduding textual proposals.

This workshop intersected SBSTA 48 and SBSTA 49 (COP24 in Katowice) and 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.

ICTSD/ERCST and EUI are jointly working on a project which provides the opportunity for a public debate on the possibility of increasing the ambition of the EU climate policy in the 2030 perspective. In light of this project, a discussion paper was written outlining the various options to enhance the EU NDC and a set of criteria was developed against which these different options can be judged.

This meeting is the first of six 'Open Fora' to be held in the EU Member States, where stakeholders are given the opportunity to discuss the different options of increasing the EU NDC and the criteria to judge these options. A background paper on options and criteria to assess them will provide the input for debate.

The outputs of these Open Fora, together with the discussion paper, will be captured in a Policy Paper to be released on November 26 in Brussels, just before COP 24 in Katowice.

This meeting is part of the “Informal dialogue on Response Measures" project, an independent initiative aimed at creating an informal atmosphere where the participants can explore, discover, explain and understand different points of view related to the issues in Article 4.15 of the Paris Agreement. The objective is to further understanding of the options available to define functions, modalities and work programme of the Forum under the Paris Agreement, as well as the consequences of adopting each option.

What is also very important is, to the extent that participants are willing to explain, to understand the different views, and more importantly, WHY these views are held. The discussions will be free and informal.

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 objective is to further understanding of the options available to define functions, modalities and work programme of the Forum under the Paris Agreement, as well as the consequences of adopting each option. The Informal Dialogue will also be a place where substantive issues that have not been included in the Agenda of the Informal Forum can be discussed.

During the 23rd Conference of the Parties (COP) of November 2017 in Bonn, Parties had the aim to make significant progress on the development of the “Paris rulebook”.

COP24, which will take place from 3-14 December 2018 in Katowice, seeks to continue to work out and ultimately adopt a package of decisions ensuring the full implementation of the Paris Agreement. It will additionally include the Facilitative Dialogue intended to support the implementation of National commitments.

Progress has been made during the last three years, with some issues being at a more mature stage in negotiations than others, but a lot of work remains to be done at COP 24 before a substantive rulebook can be agreed upon.

During this meeting, the discussion will focus on the EU’s position and ambition leading up to Katowice, with a special focus on Article 6 and carbon markets. But also on what the expected or possible outcomes are of COP 24 (the Paris Rulebook) and the political phase of the Talanoa Dialogue.
