Morocco: Carbon & Energy Policies Consultant


Description : Morocco: Carbon & Energy Policies Consultant. Compagnie : Global Green Growth Institute. Adresse : Rabat

Based in Seoul, The Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) is an intergovernmental organization founded to support and promote an economic growth model known as “green growth,” which targets key aspects of economic performance such a poverty reduction, job creation, social inclusion, and environmental sustainability. GGGI works with countries around the world, building their capacity and working collaboratively on green growth policies that can impact the lives of millions. The organization partners with countries, multilateral institutions, government bodies, and the private sector to help build economies that grow strongly and are more efficient and sustainable in the use of natural resources, less carbon-intensive, and more resilient to climate change.

GGGI has a diverse portfolio of programs in developing countries around the world. These in-country programs, together with global products and services, focus on delivering results through an integrated approach of evidence-based green growth planning and implementation aligned to “countries” development priorities. The organization also focuses on knowledge development and management activities, which build a solid theoretical and empirical basis for green growth, while providing concrete options and guidance for policymakers, as well as creating the conditions for public and private green infrastructure investments.

The Paris Agreement provides a comprehensive framework for signatory Parties to reach an ambitious commitment to limit the increase in global average temperature to well below 2°C, and to pursue efforts to limit the increase to 1.5°C in a cooperative manner. This framework covers several instruments including cooperative approaches under the Article 6 which allows for the potential development of international carbon transactions.

The Carbon Pricing Unit (CPU) of GGGI is implementing several programs related to scaling up international carbon trading, now covered by the Paris Agreement Rulebook finalized in Glasgow at COP26. By opening these markets and the resultant flow of transactions it is envisaged a robust and reliable global price for carbon can be establish, something many areas of the private sector have long called for to motivate the transformational change needed to achieve the ambitious goals of Paris. GGGI’s Article 6 programs provide technical assistance and capacity building to government counterparts to improve their readiness for Article 6 engagement. These programs support the design of projects and policies for pilot transactions and strengthening of institutional frameworks required for their implementation. By 2022, GGGI’s CPU will have secured USD 30M of funding to deliver its Article 6 programs, with operations in 10 countries, making it a leader in Article 6 piloting.

The Designing Article 6 Policy Approaches (DAPA) supports countries to access carbon finance under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement by facilitating the completion of Internationally Transferred Mitigation Outcome (ITMO) transactions between buyer countries and GGGI countries. The activities under each however differ in type and approach. Under the DAPA program the aim is to develop policy approaches, valuing the amount of mitigation outcomes that can be attributed to the introduction of a single, or package of policy measures; then wrapping these into a transaction which will see a flow of carbon finance be exchanged for a share of the resultant mitigation outcomes. The project covers two phases, scoping, and design. The scoping phase of the program was successfully completed in mid-2020 – and work is now commencing on the Design Phase in 4 countries.
