In order to demonstrate the benefits of long-term planning and showcase the lessons learned from countries, the GIZ Global Carbon Markets (GCM) Programme in Uganda and Tunisia with support from the Germany Federal Ministry of Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety in partnership with the Climate Finance Innovators (CFI) Project and the World Bank conducted a webinar during the Innovate4Climate online sessions.
This event shares insights from the updated study on global Article 6 piloting and enabling initiatives, including stakeholder experiences made so far.
The event introduces the next generation of global carbon markets under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement. Drawing on work from the IKI funded Climate Finance Innovators (CFI) and West African Alliance on Carbon Markets and Climate Finance 2020-2023 (WACC) projects, the presentation focuses specifically on the relevance of Article 6 for Africa.
