The event introduces the next generation of global carbon markets under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement. Drawing on work from the Climate Finance Innovators (CFI) project and the West African Alliance on Carbon Markets and Climate Finance (WACC), the presentation focuses specifically on the relevance of Article 6 for Africa. Both IKI-funded projects aim at establishing innovative linkages between UNFCCC market mechanisms and international climate financing institutions such as the Green Climate Fund (GCF), but also support African countries in accessing carbon markets and climate finance in order to strengthen their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).
