Indicators for the promotion of sustainable development in carbon market mechanisms

This report assesses options for the effective implementation of sustainable development impact assessment, in the context of climate change mitigation mechanisms such as those of Article 6 of the Paris Agreement. Existing carbon crediting programmes were analysed to draw insights on the best approaches for sustainable development impact assessment and the use of indicators. The authors also assess approaches for dealing with potential negative impacts of market mechanisms through safeguards.
