 GUIDE 

ALIGNING THE VOLUNTARY CARBON MARKET WITH THE PARIS AGREEMENT: A practitioner's guide


With a focus on the voluntary carbon market, we have created an online guide that provides the most up-to-date information on what changes will, or are likely to, be needed to existing approaches in order to align with the Paris Agreement. This page will be updated over time to reflect latest developments, lessons learned and new reading materials.
 
PRACTITIONER'S GUIDE

 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.
