COP 26 Side Event - German Pavilion stream 

Robust and ambitious rules for the cooperative mechanisms of the Paris Agreement’s Art. 6 are one important stepping stone to raise global ambition beyond existing NDC commitments and towards a 1.5 degree path. Then Art. 6 can become an instrument to channel funds and investments into additional action in developing countries, benefiting local communities and host country economy. Country and private sector stakeholders are waiting for transparent and robust rules to enhance ambition via Art. 6. The panel will pinpoint the opportunities for carbon market cooperation that ambitious and robust rules for Art. 6 will create if and when they are agreed here in Glasgow.
