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.

Latin America has enjoyed almost a decade of continual and more inclusive growth. Now the region has arrived at a crossroads, both in the face of global developments and regional transformations. 

On the one hand, growth rates are stalling, aggravated by external macroeconomic pressures, falling commodity prices and a low savings rate in various countries. This may put social gains at risk and result in political discontent. On the other hand, the region is entering a new phase of international trade and witnessing historic political milestones that will have regional and global impact. With a bold leadership and partnership agenda, these transformations can be actively and strategically shaped. Driven by economic diversification and innovation, built on stable and trusted public institutions and policies, Latin America can build on its strengths and resources.

The World Economic Forum on Latin America convened leaders from numerous sectors, thought leaders, and youth to discuss challenges and opportunities facing Latin America.

In a session entitled "Making COP21 Work,"  Ricardo Meléndez-Ortiz joined fellow panelists Carlos Represas (Swiss Reinsurance Company Ltd), Leo Schlesinger (Aliat Universidades), Luis Gilberto Murillo (Ministry of the Environment and Sustainable Development of Colombia), and Ana Giros (SUEZ). The panel addressed how stakeholders in Latin America's future can decarbonize the economy, strengthen resilience and adaptation, and protect biodiversity and forests.

A video of the session may be seen here. More information about the World Economic Forum on Latin America may be found here.
