Although the Katowice agreement did not go far enough in explicitly asking countries to develop ambitious ambitions on the basis of the IPCC report, a group of developed and developing countries said it intended to do so. The next step is for many countries to strive to step up ambitious efforts in their own countries to achieve a carbon-free and climate-resilient future, while taking advantage of the enormous economic and development opportunities that can be offered by courageous measures to combat climate change. There was no agreement on the rules of Article 6 of the Paris Agreement on the use of carbon markets in an international context or on common target dates for NDCs. However, given the possibility of loopholes that would allow for a double count and possibly undermine the integrity of the Paris Agreement and its general ambitions, it was preferable to postpone a decision on the international co2 markets until next year. Carbon Brief followed the negotiating texts throughout the session in an open access table. This records the number of pages of text in each iteration, the number of hooks – which indicate areas of disagreement – and the number of different “options” that are still on the table. The Paris agreement stipulates that such trade should be “consistent with the guidelines,” but does not rule it out if there are no guidelines, Keohane argues. He adds that this was deliberately formulated so that voluntary market mechanisms against attempts to sabotage a rules agreement would make voluntary market mechanisms “safe for Brazil” voluntary “Brazilian” market mechanisms. Towards the end of the first week, Kelley Kizzier, co-host of the discussions, said at a secondary event: “I think we`re starting to see some landing zones [for the deal], but it`s still bubbling.” In the end, this should not be the case and the whole section has been deferred to COP25. In the absence of an agreement, the discussions were instead postponed to next year`s COP25 in Chile. The COP24 decision on Article 6 is as follows: “The draft decision-making texts on these issues in the President`s proposal have been considered, but… The parties have not reached a consensus on this issue. COP 24 took place in the context of several important developments.
It should be noted that many participants expressed a growing sense of urgency after the publication, in October, the Special Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change on the effects of global warming of 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels (IPCC Special Report of 1.5 degrees Celsius), which showed significantly greater risks when the planet warms by an average of 2 degrees Celsius compared to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
