GGGI-Norwegian Ministry of Climate and Environment - Panel discussion

Policy Approaches – Increasing Ambition Through Large Scale Carbon Trading

11 November, 11:15 AM – 12:15 PM (CET)

The crediting of national policies, never possible under the Kyoto Protocol-era mechanism of CDM, but now feasible under the broader rules of Article 6 of the Paris Agreement will allow for scaled-up carbon transactions. This session will hear from actors how policy approaches could work, challenges to their implementation. We will discuss how the appropriate application of policy approaches may be the trigger needed to open the gates for carbon finance to help fund the COVID recovery. We will see how various institutions' work in this space has progressed and debate the ongoing outstanding issues.
