4th December

The Panel discussion will highlight African positions and priorities regarding the Article 6 negotiations, first pilot experiences and in-country readiness considerations for the implementation of Carbon Markets under the Paris Framework.

5th December

Until recently, support for considering and establishing carbon pricing focused on individual national jurisdictions. Nevertheless, over the last few years, donors and supported countries alike have shown increased interest in establishing alliances and networks on carbon pricing at the regional level. Such cooperation can ensure regional alignment, pave the way for regional markets but also share knowledge and know-how directly in the regions where support is needed, while also preparing countries for article 6 readiness.
This event intends therefore to present the benefits of regional cooperation on carbon pricing, present examples, take stock of the current status quo and potential needs for accelerating action on article 6 readiness on the ground.

September

This private sector workshop series intends to build readiness for the potential CDM transition and future implementation of Article 6 amongst existing and aspiring carbon asset developers with Eastern Africa. The first session will focus on the status of carbon market mechanisms including sharing experiences on the CDM and voluntary standards across the region. This will include exploring key issues of international climate negotiations on Article 6 as well as potential CDM transition. The second session will focus on key impacts of the Paris Agreement and country NDCs on future carbon markets (e.g. accounting requirements for carbon credits such as corresponding adjustments). Lastly, the third and final session, will explore pilot activities that are contributing to the foundation of future cooperative approaches to take place under the Paris Agreement. The series of events will provide a platform for exchanges between different carbon market practitioners in the region and facilitate peer to peer learning

19th October

Article 6 of the Paris Agreement allows Parties to the Paris Agreement to cooperate on a voluntary basis in implementing their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).

However, Parties have not yet been able to agree on a rule book for Article 6 that defines the modalities of such types of cooperation. In the absence of guiding rules on Article 6, pilot and readiness activities become paramount for developing an attractive and credible international post-2020 carbon market that includes participation of the African continent.

Through this event the West and the Eastern African Alliance for Carbon Markets and Climate Finance together with their member countries wish to share experiences and lessons learned through participating in Article 6 pilot activities, particularly in terms of opportunities and challenges. The event will also focus on the perspective of host countries, reflecting, inter alia, on the regulatory requirements for host countries, the role of the private sector and the engagement in Article 6 tenders.
