Whitepaper – Understanding and Implemenitng Article 6 of the Paris Agreement

• Clear and internationally agreed rules for implementation under Article 6 have not yet been agreed and much effort is needed to conclude. • However, Article 6 provides substantial latitude to Parties to implement cooperative approaches, which enable them to start piloting and experimenting initiatives to undertake internationally transferred mitigation outcomes (ITMOs). • Clear and transparent disclosure of key environmental integrity approaches employed under cooperative approaches, and robust MRV and accounting procedures will be important elements of ensuring that early movers on Article 6 implementation have their activities recognized under future modalities and procedures that may be adopted by the Conference of the Parties serving as the Meeting of the Parties to the Paris Agreement (CMA).
