Climate Change Expert Group (CCXG) Global Forum - March 2014

 

 

This Global Forum was held at the OECD Conference Center, Paris (France). Organised by the OECD and the IEA,  it aimed to promote dialogue and enhance understanding between a wide range of countries on technical issues in the international climate change negotiations. This seminar is an informal meeting outside of the UNFCCC negotiations and discussions were non-attributed.

The Secretariat would like to thank Australia, Belgium, the European Commission, Germany, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK for their direct funding of the CCXG in 2013/14, and the OECD and IEA for their in-kind support.

- AGENDA - 

Welcoming remarks and recap of outcomes of September 2013
by Karine Hertzberg, Chair of the Climate Change Expert Group
Opening Plenary: Towards a 2015 climate change agreement - relevant recent research

Focus: key questions from Warsaw based on recent research by the IEA and the OECD.

The IEA outlined results of recent research on the energy sector. These analyses could inform development of countries’ domestic mitigation ambition. The OECD presented initial results of the CIRCLE project, which quantifies the future costs of inaction and benefits of environmental policy actions. These results could be relevant to current discussions on loss and damage.

Speakers: Philippe Benoit, IEA (IEA analysis to inform domestic ambition); Rob Dellink, OECD (Initial results of the CIRCLE project ); Edward Mazria, Architecture 2030; Kishan Kumarsingh and Artur Runge-Metzger, ADP co-chairs

Breakout Group Climate Finance
Scale-up and replication of climate finance interventions 

 
Focus 1: The topic of scaling up and replicating climate finance interventions

The first Part of this breakout group outlined broad lessons on the issues learned from various experiences to date. 
The second Part discussed challenges facing institutional frameworks of climate finance sources. 
The third Part looked into how to identify and tackle barriers to facilitating further climate finance interventions.

Breakout Group Post-2015 Agreement
Designing a flexible and durable 2015 agreement

 

Focus: Building some flexibility into the design of the 2015 agreement could make it more durable in the face of new scientific discoveries, external changes and shocks. The aim of this session was to explore what a flexible and durable climate change agreement could look like and to propose pragmatic options for the design of such an agreement.

Co-facilitated by Gilberto Arias (Dominican Republic) and Paul Watkinson (France)
Draft Background document: “Built to Last: Designing a Flexible and Durable 2015 Climate Change Agreement” by Gregory Briner, Takayoshi Kato and Takashi Hattori

Breakout Group Accounting
Accounting for post-2020 mitigation contributions: facilitating clarity, transparency and understanding
 

Focus: The implications of a diverse range of possible mitigation contribution types for accounting in the 2015 agreement. 
Part 1 explores the importance of accounting and implications of non-GHG contributions. Part 2 focuses on double-counting and single-year targets. Part 3 considers the way forward: how the timing of negotiations on accounting issues could fit with the communication of intended national mitigation contributions.
