Harvard Project Event:

Securing Climate Ambition with Cooperative Approaches: Options under Article 6

Wednesday, 10 November, 2021; 4:45 – 6:00 pm, Greenwich Mean Time
Location: Strangford Lough event room in the Clyde Auditorium (within the “Blue Zone” at the COP) 

This event — and all COP-26 official side events — will be livestreamed publicly over the UNFCCC’s YouTube side-event channel here

Article 6 of the Paris Agreement provides opportunities for national governments and the private sector to cooperate internationally to address climate change. In particular, it provides two modalities for international market-based mechanisms. At COP-26 in Glasgow in November, the Parties to the Paris Agreement will attempt (once again) to write the specific rules for implementing Article 6. Speakers in this event — all experts on Article 6 and market mechanisms more generally — will examine the potential of Article 6 — and its prospects at COP-26 and beyond.

Mr. Mehling’s presentation will be based in large part on a discussion paper he recently completed for the Harvard Project on Climate Agreements, which is available here

Speakers: Daniele Agostini, Head of Low Carbon and European Energy Policies, Enel; Kelley Kizzier, Vice President for Global Climate, Environmental Defense Fund; Michael Mehling, Deputy Director, Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Mandy Rambharos, General Manager for Just Energy Transition, Eskom Holdings (South Africa); Robert Stavins, Director, Harvard Project on Climate Agreements; government representatives to be invited.

Co-sponsors: Enel Foundation, Foundation Environment - Law Society (FURG)
