Jakarta ● Wed, October 13 2021
A mere two weeks before the 26th United Nations climate change conference (COP26) opens in Glasgow, diplomats in Jakarta are pushing for the completion of international rules to govern emissions trading, a highly technical but potentially effective scheme mandated by the 2015 Paris Agreement, also known as the Paris Accords.
The stakes could not be higher for the parties to the agreement to conclude their provisions on carbon emissions trading and other forms of international cooperation under Article 6 of the climate deal, one of the last articles left unresolved in the 2018 Paris rulebook.
Complexity was a big reason why Article 6 was not agreed until the final morning of the Paris negotiations in 2015 or at subsequent COPs, so the issue is expected to be in the spotlight at COP26 in November, considered by many to be decisive for the future of the planet and all living creatures on it, including human beings.
