Designing a coherent and robust reporting and review cycle in the context of operationalising Articles 6 and 13 of the Paris Agreement” at https://www.perspectives.cc/fileadmin/Publications/PCG_Article_6_transparency_Nov2020.pdf (direct link to the full study here and the Policymakers’ Summary here.)
Commissioned by the Swedish Energy Agency (SEA), this study analyses the decisive role that transparency plays in ensuring the integrity of market-based cooperation under Article 6. We further develop recommendations for ongoing UNFCCC negotiations to design an effective and integrated reporting and review cycle for market-based cooperation in the context of Article 6. With the draft Article 6.2 Guidance now clearly establishing a link between the ‘Enhanced Transparency Framework’ (ETF) and reporting and review on international carbon market activities, negotiations on the ETF and on Article 6 can be synchronised to ensure a robust outcome. Identifying the synergies between a country’s broader transparency capacity and their respective Article 6 reporting capacity, we emphasise the value of Article 6 piloting and capacity building on anticipated reporting requirements.We are looking forward to your comments and hope this study informs ongoing discussions on how to ensure integrity in international market-based cooperation.
