Enhancing sustainable development in Ethiopia through climate change mitigation and adaptation

This scoping study explores potential challenges and opportunities for the development and implementation of mitigation market mechanisms (MMM) under Articles 6.2 or 6.4 of the Paris Agreement, as well as the above-mentioned ABM under Art. 6.8 in Ethiopia. Moreover, the study compares the strengths and weaknesses of the MMM and ABM to provide recommendations on how the Government of Ethiopia can use Art. 6 mechanisms to its advantage pre- and post-2020, including contributing to GTP II, the CRGE Strategy and Ethiopia’s NDC. Furthermore, the study seeks to contribute to the implementation of the AfDB’s 2016-20 Country Strategy Paper (CSP), the High 5 strategic priorities which are designed to accelerate the realization of the Bank’s Ten-Year Strategy (2013-22) and achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in general.
