“The Paris Agreement is not the CDM”: this is a statement frequently made to emphasise the difference between the two regimes with respect to their requirements for mitigation activities. Under the Paris Agreement, all countries committed to their own, nationally determined contributions to the global fight against climate change: as a consequence, the baselines of mitigation activities under Article 6 must be carefully reviewed in order not to compete with or duplicate domestic climate change policy measures. If this cannot be ensured, there is a risk of overselling, incoherent policy measures and even (despite corresponding adjustments) impaired environmental integrity. This explains why mitigation activities under Article 6 will be fundamentally different from mitigation activities under the CDM. But what constitutes a mitigation activity specifically workable under Article 6?
This webinar showcases specific mitigation activities setups that comply to a high degree with the requirements of an Article 6 transaction. It draws upon implemented pilot activities, proposals submitted to the KliK Foundation, and more importantly concrete activities developed with a view to authorisation under a bilateral agreement.
