Main project features:

The IKI project developed pragmatic approaches for the implementation of Article 6 activities in selected cities and conceptualised them as urban Article 6 pilots. A particular focus was on the involvement of relevant actors at the local and national levels – e.g., city authorities, state governments, urban industry, landlords, etc. – as well as at the international level, e.g., with regard to the requirements of Internationally Transferred Mitigation Outcomes (ITMO) buyers. Furthermore, pragmatic structures and distribution mechanisms for Art. 6 were developed with the partners and relevant actors in the target countries Indonesia and Thailand. The knowledge generated was shared both in the partner countries and internationally and thus invited for replication.

Project Overview

Local and national capacities were supported in the definition, conceptualization and implementation of urban Art. 6 activities – so that at the end of the project in each partner country there was at least one “ready-to- generate emission reductions” Art. 6 pilot. The generated knowledge ws disseminated nationally and internationally and was thus invited to replicate. In order to achieve this goal, we provided for the following steps: 1) Analysis of status-quo in the selected cities, 2) Identification of key city-specific climate policy measures and gap analysis to identify barriers and obstacles to the implementation of policies, 3) Dialogue with key stakeholders such as municipalities on prioritization of policy instruments, 4) Assessing the suitability of policy instruments for Article 6, 5) Dialogue with municipal, regional and central governments in partner countries to ensure that Art. 6 pilots are supported, 6) Development of concepts for the financing and marketing of Art. 6 pilots (incl. option of public- private partnerships (PPPs), 7) Promotion and facilitation of national and international knowledge sharing. The intended impact was to develop pragmatic approaches that not only allow the pilot projects to generate ITMOs/A6.4ERs, but also inspire other cities worldwide to set up urban Art. 6 programmes themselves.
