COP27 | Empowering countries to operationalize the Article 6 of the Paris Agreement

November 4, 2022
Event Details

11 November 2022

1 - 2pm

COP27, UNFCCC Pavilion

Join UNDP, UNFCCC and the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) to launch and present the new Article 6.2 capacity building and training course to accelerate the implementation and operationalization of Article 6 of the Paris Agreement.

Decisions in Glasgow on Article 6 of the Paris Agreement elaborated the specific focus areas for capacity building across Article 6.2 and 6.4 (2/CMA.3 and 3/CMA.3). Meanwhile the relevance of cooperative approaches in the context of NDC implementation has doubled: the share of Parties that indicated that they plan or will possibly use voluntary cooperation in at least one of its scopes has increased from 46 to 85 per cent in the new or updated NDCs compared with those Parties’ previous NDCs. 

The objectives of the Article 6.2 course are:

  • Relevant government representatives will be equipped to make decisions related to the country participation in cooperative approaches under Article 6.2 of the Paris Agreement. Participants will have a detailed overview of the requirements and implications of their participation.
  • Policymakers and technical staff in charge of the design and implementation of processes and procedures required for the participation in cooperative approaches will understand the different policy, technical and processes components required to operationalize Article 6.2 in the country in the form of an Article 6 framework.
