Elinor Ostrom Room, Palazzo Buontalenti

Session as part of the EUI Climate Week 2024.

While COP28 fell short of bringing the full operationalisation of Article 6 of the Paris Agreement closer, international carbon crediting piloting schemes and approaches continue to develop. Ensuring environmental integrity of the international credits remains a critical point regardless of the mechanisms used (Art. 6 or VCM). While actors agree on the end goal of high-quality credits, how to fulfil this objective is subject to debate and national circumstances. This session aims to reflect on what are the policy interventions needed to correct market shortcomings and ensure good governance in international carbon markets, shedding light on best practices and useful lessons in view of finalising the negotiations on Article 6 sooner rather than later.
