  POSITION PAPER  

SDI RECOMMENDATIONS TO INFORM COP26
ON ARTICLE 6 OF THE PARIS AGREEMENT


This position paper is intended for use by the Parties to inform negotiations on Article-6 related decisions. While the references included to date in adopted and draft CMA Decisions are welcome and should be preserved, the Sustainable Development Initiative (SDI) recommends further work to develop tools and approaches to ensure sustainable development can be rigorously and consistently monitored and reported. Doing so can help to ensure that sustainable development is genuinely integrated into the design of activities and information is available for host countries and other stakeholders.

The Sustainable Development Initiative is a collaboration between Gold Standard and UNEP DTU Partnership, supported in 2021 by the governments of Germany, Norway and Sweden. It aims to promote strong provisions on sustainable development in Article 6 rules and activities.
