3 components to ensure protection of human rights under Paris Agreement's carbon market mechanisms

"Integrating Human Rights in the Modalities Related to Carbon Markets Established under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement", 2 Dec 2019

Article 6 of the Paris Agreement establishes cooperative approaches in the form of market and non-market mechanisms and approaches to achieve the goals of the Agreement.... If designed correctly, all three could help countries meet their individual climate commitments and help contribute to an overall reduction in emissions and meeting the global goal of keeping temperature rise to no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius. However, if designed poorly, these approaches could not only contribute to rising emissions, but also could cause significant environmental and social harm and human rights violations. Ensuring the respect for and protection of human rights in Article 6 activities is therefore critical. Preserving human rights in Article 6 activities includes three key components: social and environmental safeguards, public participation, and an independent grievance redress mechanism/process.
