Michael A. Mehling, Deputy Director at the Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research of MIT, wrote a paper that recently came out on the Harvard Project on Climate Agreements with the scientific contribution of Enel Foundation.
The research serves as basis for two panel events conducted by the Harvard Project on Climate Agreements in connection with COP26, one that took place last week online, and the other, “Securing Climate Ambition with Cooperative Approaches: Options under Article 6”, that will happen on November 10 in Glasgow at COP26, co-hosted by Enel Foundation and Foundation Environment - Law Society (FURG).
Article 6 of the Paris Agreement provides opportunities for national governments and the private sector to cooperate internationally to address climate change. In particular, it provides two modalities for international market-based mechanisms. At COP26 in Glasgow in November, the Parties to the Paris Agreement are currently attempting (once again) to write the specific rules for implementing Article 6. Speakers in this event - all experts on Article 6 and market mechanisms more generally - will examine the potential of Article 6 - and its prospects at COP26 and beyond.
Beside Michael Mehling, speakers will include: Daniele Agostini, Head of Low Carbon and European Energy Policies, Enel; Kelley Kizzier, Vice President for Global Climate, Environmental Defense Fund; and Robert Stavins, Director, Harvard Project on Climate Agreements.
