Using Article 6.2 to foster ambition

How Germany could use the cooperative approaches of the Paris Agreement to raise climate ambition


The research project explores how Germany can increase ambition by using carbon market approaches under Article 6.2 of the Paris Agreement. This paper explores possible uses of Article 6.2 by Germany beyond the attainment of the EU-NDCs. The paper explores different options to use Art. 6.2 for compliance as well as voluntary purposes. Moreover, reporting possibilities under UNFCCC are discussed for the different options.

It finds that using Article 6.2 for voluntary or a combination of different purposes holds great potential for an increase in ambition, while compliance purposes is fraught with challenges.
