UNFCCC – Official Side Event – Katowice, Poland
Tue, 04 Dec 2018 – 16:45-18:15
In light of the potential impacts of old Kyoto mechanisms on the Paris Agreement, this event will discuss how to transition towards a new system for international transfers under Article 6, and how to adopt safeguards to ensure that markets actually contribute to reducing overall emissions, respect human and indigenous rights, and promote sustainable development.
Panelists will provide a diverse range of views on the lessons which can be drawn from past experiences, such as with the Clean Development Mechanism, in order to inform the design of new markets.
- Alberto Saldamando (Indigenous Environmental Network): Non-market approaches, environmental justice in carbon markets and the importance of social and Indigenous and Human Rights safeguards
- Gilles Dufrasne (Carbon Market Watch): Designing international carbon markets for the post-2020 period
- Carsten Warnecke (NewClimate Institute): lessons from the Clean Development Mechanism – what is the evidence (tbc)
- Sophie Closson (International carbon markets negotiator, Belgium): transitioning from Kyoto to Paris, what are the options on the table to improve the climate impact of carbon markets (tbc).
Moderator: Erika Lennon (Center for international environmental law)
