Urban climate action: pilot projects under article 6 of the Paris Agreement in Indonesia & Thailand
As of: January 2022
Cities cause over 40% of direct global CO2 emissions. However, mobilising significant emission reductions in cities is a major challenge due to the very heterogeneous urban structures. The project develops pragmatic approaches for the implementation of activities corresponding to the article 6 of the Paris Agreement in cities. In other words, the project pilots the integration of cities in the global emission trading system. A particular focus lies on the involvement of relevant actors at the local, national level and international level. Furthermore, pragmatic structures and distribution mechanisms for Article 6 will be conceptualised with the partners and relevant actors in the target countries. The expected outcome of the project is to have at least one pilot city in each country that is able to generate emission certificates according to Article 6.
