With the goal of introducing principled guiding language into the final text of the 2015 Paris Agreement, the Paris Intervention Carbon Pricing Workstream is an action-focused initiative, within the Pathway to Paris Working Sessions, aimed at shaping language that can be included in the text of the Paris agreement to anchor a wide range of national carbon pricing initiatives and ensure that the voice of stakeholders is heard and included in the international climate agreement.
We will review and assess the current working text of the international climate agreement, explore its structure, examine the specific language used to address to carbon pricing, define and refine that language, expose weaknesses, “loop holes” and “escape hatches”, and identify areas of opportunity to introduce new language that supports economically efficient, socially equitable, and environmentally effective carbon pricing and climate solutions.
Our target is to have draft text sponsored and introduced at the UNFCCC Intercessional in Bonn this June. Once introduced, we can then refine and build further cross-sector support for its inclusion in the final text of the Paris Agreement in December. This Working Session is the first in a series.

We are building a tool kit, to include regular support and additional training, to allow partners around the world to host their own Working Sessions, or to add that element of this work to their already planned events.
