Flexible Mechanisms

The CAN Flexible Mechanisms Group coordinates advocacy and policy work around carbon markets. The group’s main focus is to strengthen the environmental and social integrity of both offsetting and cap-and-trade schemes.

In the international climate policy process, the group has made submissions to the UNFCCC on all three Kyoto trading mechanisms and engages actively in the current carbon market negotiations under the Paris Agreement Article 6.

The group also exchanges information on regional and national carbon markets and helps national NGOs in the network on developing their policy positions.
