Climate Change Expert Group (CCXG) Global Forum

 

26-27 September 2012 - OECD Conference Centre, Paris (France)

 

This seminar, organised by the OECD and the IEA, aimed to promote dialogue and enhance understanding between a wide range of countries on technical issues in the international climate change negotiations.

Breakout Group 2a: Leveraging/Mobilising Climate Finance

Focus

This breakout group explored policy interventions to mobilise climate finance and definitions of leveraged climate finance. Discussions focussed on which policy interventions could be considered as mobilising climate finance to meet the needs of developing countries; how effective these interventions have been in mobilising climate finance; and how leveraging or mobilising has been assessed to date.

11:30 – 18:00 Breakout Group 2b: Good Practice in Setting National Baselines

 Focus

Examples of good practice in national baseline setting in developing countries were shared in the first part of this session, highlighting progress made in the workstream initiated by the Danish Energy Agency in conjunction with UNEP RISOE and OECD. The second part of the session will involve a presentation by the CCXG Secretariat of the draft discussion document suggesting options for improving transparency and consistency in baseline setting, with presentations and responses from a range of country experts. Discussions will continue into the third part, focussing on elements of convergence/divergence in moving towards baseline guidelines.

DAY 2 

 9:30 – 16:00 Breakout Group 3a: Leveraging/Mobilising Climate Finance

Focus 

This second session on finance took stock of how much climate-related finance has been mobilised and what types of project flows may be included. Discussions included an examination of whether any initial lessons can be drawn from the current data on leverage ratios (e.g. are leverage ratios similar for similar types of projects or similar types of countries?) and which project types and flows should count as climate finance. The session concluded by identifying areas of convergence and divergence, as well as research gaps or needs for further policy dialogue that CCXG work could help to fill.

  Identifying areas of convergence and divergence, needs for further policy dialogue

Background documents

9:30 – 16:00  Breakout Group 3b: Design and Governance of Market Mechanisms
Focus At COP 17 Parties agreed both to define a new market-based mechanism and to consider a framework for various approaches undertaken by Parties, including the use of markets. This session focussed on commonalities in the purpose and design of market mechanisms, whether under the “framework” or the “new market mechanism”. The first session examined the role of market mechanisms in evolving international space and what mechanisms are trying to achieve both inside and outside of the UNFCCC. The second session focussed on identifying design elements common to different types of mechanism, and how tools and lessons learned from the operation and governance of non-KP mechanisms can be relevant. The third session aimed to identify areas of convergence and divergence in the discussion as well as areas where CCXG work could be valuable.
