Carbon pricing policies play a critical role in delivering on the goals of the Paris Agreement and stabilizing global temperatures. On the road to meeting their respective climate targets, over twenty jurisdictions in the Asia Pacific region are in various stages of establishing their own carbon pricing initiatives, ranging from emissions trading systems to carbon taxes. 2020 was initially set to be the year that signatories concluded the first phase – and began the second phase – of the Paris Agreement by revising and increasing the ambition of their Nationally Determined Contributions.
With Glasgow COP26 postponed until next year and in the context of ongoing global COVID-19 recovery efforts, this workshop provides a space for COP26 organizers and policymakers from the Asia Pacific to share the latest updates on the role of carbon pricing in accelerating climate ambition, and other mitigation strategies in the region.
This event is a public virtual workshop.
