Accounting framework for the Post-2020 period

Accounting rules and procedures will dictate how progress is tracked for various possible types of mitigation contributions that might be included in the 2015 agreement and how their achievement will be determined. Without such rules, it will be difficult, if not impossible, to accurately track progress toward individual contributions as well as towards limiting warming to 2° C or below.The report explores the components of a robust and rigorous accounting framework, lessons learned from existing accounting frame-works, and how such a framework can be developed for the 2015 agreement. The objective is to support the establishment of a sufficiently robust and rigorous common accounting framework for the 2015 agreement, including accounting rules for international transfers of units from marketbased mechanisms and the land sector.

Hide / Show Abstract

This annex evaluates the each accounting option described in the report based on the criteria of transparency, comparability, and maximizing measurable emissions reductions. When assessing the potential for maximizing emissions reductions, in particular, it should be noted that it will also depend on other aspects of goal design, but all other things being equal we assess how the options can lead to more measurable emissions reductions.
