The history of international climate negotiations is marked with contentious issues on multiple grounds: language, goals, mechanisms, whether the provisions are binding or not. In this context, and just ahead of COP26, the CARICOM makes the Article 6 Negotiations Handbook available. The handbook is a technical manual that aims to bring the complexity of Article 6 negotiations in a simple but yet exhaustive manner. It draws on the technical aspects of Article 6 of the Paris Agreement and is instrumental to CARICOM climate negotiators at COP26.
The CARICOM Article 6 Negotiation Handbook was developed with the support of the Global Carbon Market Project in the Caribbean, and it is adapted from the original Article 6 Negotiations Handbook for Eastern Africa.
