IMPLEMENTATION OF ARTICLE 6 OF THE PARIS AGREEMENT
This side event is an opportunity for stakeholders to be briefed by and enter in discussion with some of the most knowledgeable negotiators to understand the progress and challenges towards the implementation of Article 6 of the Paris Agreement, which addresses the issue of ‘cooperative approaches’. 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. As for other parts of the PA, negotiators received a mandate after COP21 in Paris to create a rulebook by the end of COP24 to ensure these elements become operational.

IMPROVED FORUM ON RESPONSE MEASURES
During this side event, stakeholders will be briefed by and will enter in discussion with some of the most knowledgeable negotiators on Article 4.15 of the PA, which covers the forum on response measures under the PA whose functions, work programme, and modalities and procedures are being developed. Presently, the improved forum continues its work programme under joint SBI and SBSTA leadership. Both are extremely important issues, with an SBI/SBSTA recommendation to the CMA to be considered in Katowice by the end of COP24. At the same time the review of the improved forum is to take place.

THE POTENTIAL OF CARBON PRICING IN THE TRANSITION TO A LOW-CARBON
ECONOMY

Carbon pricing policies significantly reduce mitigation cost and unlock economic opportunities of transition. Since the first carbon pricing instrument was launched in 1990, 50 initiatives now operate worldwide. A diverse set of speakers will present achievements and recommendations for carbon pricing instruments under the Paris Agreement, including the potential of these instruments to support resource mobilization in developing countries.

Part 1: Presentation of the state of the art of carbon pricing initiatives worldwide
The panel will be composed of representatives from ICAP Secretariat, the European Comission, California Air Resources Board, World Bank Group, Sweden and Mexico.

Part 2: Focus on fostering effective engagement on carbon pricing for government agencies and civil society, through both effective communication and adapted revenue use
The panel will be composed of representatives from Climate Focus, World Bank Group, I4CE, Ecofys.

Part 3: Presentation of perspectives for internal carbon pricing to align investments and procurements with the Paris Agreement
The panel will be composed of representatives from CDP, Ecofys, and Businesses.

Part 4: Presentation of perspectives around future carbon markets under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement
The panel will be composed of representatives from IETA, Carbon Market Watch, and SEI.

CAPTURE PROJECT STUDY: CCS IN NATIONALLY DETERMINED CONTRIBUTIONS
AND MID-CENTURY STRATEGIES

The Paris Agreement requires nations to submit nationally determined contributions (NDCs). There was also a decision at COP21 which provides for nations to voluntarily submit a long term strategy by 2019 about actions beyond 2050. The CO2 Capture Project, in partnership with ERM, released a report earlier in 2018 that studied the role of CO2 capture and geological storage in NDCs and the midcentury strategies of nations. This session will highlight the results of the study. Technology and policy experts from other research organizations will also contribute their perspectives about CCS in national policies and in the longer term strategies to transition to a low carbon future.

UNLEASHING THE POTENTIAL OF MARKET MECHANISMS: WHAT IS NEEDED TO
SUPPORT THE MARKET DEVELOPMENT?

This side event will discuss measures and means required by carbon market players to foster further development and use of programmatic approaches in market mechanisms for supporting the transition from Kyoto to Paris market environments. These could relate to issues including conducive policy frameworks, and suitable financing arrangements. The debate shall also derive preconditions and minimum requirements for conducting pilot initiatives to inform negotiations and promote enhanced ambition of countries’ mitigation efforts currently laid out in the NDCs. Lessons learnt from past initiatives shall support the discussion.

  • The reasons why double-counting matters for business certainty, the environment and the
  • integrity of the global environmental architecture.
  • The steps that need to be taken in Article 6 negotiations, and beyond.

EMERGING GUIDELINES FOR CORPORATE CLIMATE ACTION IN SUPPLY
CHAINS

With nearly 500 companies committing to set science based targets, there are emerging tools for accounting for supply chain emissions, related to land use change and agricultural practices. To influence these supply chain emissions, companies must support interventions outside of their direct operations, where direct control is a significant challenge. This session will look at some of the carbon accounting guidelines and methodologies emerging. The goal is to advance addressing gaps and
barriers and establishing a more standardized way for companies to manage supply chain emissions.

THE FUTURE OF CARBON MARKETS IN MAJOR ASIAN ECONOMIES
Major Asian economies contribute roughly half of total global emissions; a share that is likely to increase as large South and Southeast Asian countries continue to develop. Carbon markets can be fundamental tools for enabling such development without rapid emissions growth, but they must be prioritized politically and deployed effectively. Given growing environmental and economic connectivity in Asia, countries at varied stages of development would also benefit from mitigation cooperation to yield offset credits and from exploring targeted market links across borders. This session will explore these issues while presenting the current state-of-affairs on carbon market
trends in the Asia Pacific.

FINANCING AN INCLUSIVE GREEN ECONOMY TRANSITION
Many Governments and companies are contributing to the Paris Agreement by advancing their green economy transition agendas. This transition has the strong potential to bring economic prosperity and pave the way for a sustainable future. However, it could entail short term adverse impacts on certain jobs and assets, often labelled as “stranded assets” and “stranded labour”. This session will discuss the extent of the challenge and possible routes to overcome it, focusing on the role that financial institutions can play. It will combine corporate and political views, and comment on the degree of awareness/action plans of institutional and multilateral investors. Some pilot initiatives will be shown.

NOT “OR” BUT “AND” – THE ROLE OF CCS IN ACHIEVING THE 1.5 °C OBJECTIVE
Most scenarios in the IPCC SR15 show that achieving stabilization at 1.5°C is not achievable without the significant deployment of CCUS technologies, particularly in emission intensive industries such as cement, steel and chemicals. The panel will discuss how policies will need to be framed by Governments to enable this - both for immediate mitigation and as laying the infrastructure to enable DAC in the future.
