Years of stalled negotiations leading up to the Paris Agreement unexpectedly delivered a strong provision for markets in its Article 6, establishing multiple avenues for cooperation, including the transfer of “mitigation outcomes” and the Sustainable Development Mechanism (SDM). Now, when elaborating the guidance, rules, modalities and procedures of these mechanisms, it is imperative that Parties learn from and improve on past experience – especially with the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and Joint Implementation (JI).

At this event, experts will reflect crucial lessons to be learned to ensure social and environmental integrity and discuss key elements to address in elaborating the new mechanisms.
