The adoption of the Article 6 rulebook at COP26 in Glasgow in November 2021 stirred up the debate about the role of market-based forestry activities under Article 6. The Article 6 rulebook decisions provide guidance for the implementation of bi- or multilateral cooperation under Article 6.2 while the Rules, Modalities and Procedures (RMPs) outline the functioning of the Article 6.4 mechanism. This Carbon Mechanisms policy paper analyses the decisions on Article 6 taken by Parties at COP26 and what they might imply for implementing market-based forestry activities.
