Conditionality and Article 6: An Analysis of updated NDCs of African countries
Mai 25, 2021 @ 17:30 - 18:30
Workshop for Climate Innovation Series
25 May 2021, 11.30AM EDT / 3.30 PM GMT/ 5.30PM CET / 6.30PM CET
In 2021, countries are expected to increase ambition by updating their NDC targets, as they enter their first year of NDC implementation. Looking at this experience, it becomes clear that the conditionality of NDC targets is a crucial feature, in particular for international support through Article 6 carbon markets. However, how to apply conditionality is not clearly defined in the UNFCCC rulebook and a lack of conceptual clarity opens space for different applications in NDCs, with potential consequences for access to Article 6 cooperative approaches.
The workshop launches the study “Conditionality and Article 6: An analysis of updated NDCs of African countries” that analyses the evolution of conditionality and its implementation with a focus on Africa. Practitioners and experts discuss how conditional/unconditional elements may impact Article 6 eligibility. The workshop concludes with whether a more broadly shared understanding of conditionality in NDCs is important for advancing Article 6 implementation.
