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 Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement.
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 to complete 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 Paris Agreement.
