Side Event 26

FUTURE CARBON FUND – DELIVERING CO-BENEFITS FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

The Future Carbon Fund, a trust fund managed by the ADB is supporting GHG mitigation efforts by providing carbon finance through the pre-purchase of 2013-2020 CERs from CDM projects in Asia and the Pacific. FCF is pursuing a diverse portfolio of projects which not only reduce GHG emissions but also deliver a range of local, regional, and trans-boundary co-benefits. At the side event, ADB will share its experience and lessons learned on how co-benefits from GHG mitigation projects could be considered in the design of a new market mechanism as envisaged under Article 6.4 of the Paris Agreement.

OVERVIEW AND REVIEW OF COLOMBIA’S GREENHOUSE GAS MRV HARMONIZATION AND DATA MANAGEMENT PLATFORM

The Government of Colombia (GoC), with support from the USAID Resources to Advance LEDS Implementation (RALI) project, is undertaking innovative MRV approaches to implement their NDC. Colombia is applying RALI’s harmonization approach to align mitigation project-level MRV with their national GHG inventory, designing a new data management platform to institutionalize the TACCC principles into Colombia’s biannual inventory reports. This session will introduce the GoC’s MRV approaches and solicit input from experts and country representatives on the design and development of SINGEI.

Side Event 30

SUB-NATIONAL STRATEGIES IN NORTH AMERICA FOR MEETING PARIS COMMITMENTS

Led by California and other states, the US is determined to meet its Paris commitments under the Paris Agreement by fostering action on climate change at the sub-national level. As laboratories for innovation, sub-national leaders have been implementing a wide variety of approaches to reduce emissions, often tackling fundamental complexities for achieving a low/no carbon future across the entire economic spectrum. This session will bring together leading players to discuss various policy approaches, including which sectors to target, the role of market-based mechanisms, integrated strategies for addressing benefits other than climate, and the extent to which policies should be harmonized with other jurisdictions.

Side Event 31

EBRD GREEN CITIES FRAMEWORK: ACCELERATING FINANCING FOR URBAN ACTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE

The Framework offers municipalities the tools to address their significant environmental challenges. This session highlights the needs of climate-focused urban development and infrastructure investment. Experts will discuss their experiences of addressing climate change and finance in urban areas.

Side Event 32

HETEROGENEOUS LINKAGE AND THE EVOLUTION OF ARTICLE 6

The Paris Agreement has achieved one of two key necessary conditions for ultimate success – a broad base of participation among the countries of the world. But another key necessary condition has yet to be achieved – adequate collective ambition of the individual NDCs. How can climate negotiators provide a structure that provides incentives to increase ambition over time? One part of the answer can be facilitating international linkage of regional, national, and sub-national policies. A central challenge is how to accomplish this in the context of the great heterogeneity that characterizes climate policies. Panelists will review the status of linkage in the world, the evolution of Article 6, and the relationship between the two.

Side Event 33

EXPLORING THE POTENTIAL FOR CARBON CLUBS AND LINKED CARBON MARKETS IN THE ASIA-PACIFIC REGION

This event will explore the potential for carbon clubs and linked carbon markets in the Asia-Pacific Region, with a special focus on countries such as Korea, China, Singapore and Australia. This event will look at how international cooperation could help countries reach their NDCs, making use of the Paris Agreement’s market provisions.

Side Event 34

HIGH LEVEL PANEL ON ZIMBABWE’S NDC

The High Level Panel on Zimbabwe’s NDC aims to profile the country’s implementation strategy regarding mitigation and adaptation goals outlined as part of the commitments of the NDC submitted in 2015. Moreover, it will demonstrate and put the MRV framework into perspective to thus foster and strengthen partnerships on the NDC work in key sectors. In this vein, the event will draw on best practices, which will help inform the further advancement of the Zimbabwe NDC.
