Upcoming Webinar | 28 September 2022 | 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm GMT +1

Ahead of our participation in COP27 in Sharm El-Sheik, Egypt, in November, we will explore in this webinar how the new mechanisms agreed under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement can play a key role in NDC implementation. Our focus will be on both the opportunities these mechanisms provide and the near-term challenges to accessing these.

Specifically, we will cover:

  1. How Article 6 can assist in delivering climate finance
    • Article 6 as a potential additional tool to wider multilateral climate finance
    • Brief overview of Article 6.2 and Article 6.4 mechanisms, including their interface with voluntary carbon markets
    • Ability of emerging markets to implement these mechanisms in a way that can channel finance and technology transfer to key areas relevant to an NDC
    • Key near-term steps needed to prepare for this
  2. Perspectives on opportunities and challenges, including the needs of business investors
  3. What the climate finance needs of emerging markets are to deliver their NDCs
    • Importance of significant climate finance for emerging markets
    • Needs of Egypt as the host country for COP27 under the updated NDC
