October 19, 2022.- Francisco Pinto, representing the Coordination of the Technical Subgroup on Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (SGT-MRV) of the Pacific Alliance, participated in the General Assembly of Carbon Pricing of the Americas and the Latin American Climate Summit.
In the first instance, he highlighted both the start of Phase 2 of the SGT-MRV, thanks to the new technical and financial support from Canada that will last until 2026, as well as the updating of the Coordination Framework of the SGT-MRV that guides its work. Regarding the last point, Pinto pointed out that the countries of the Pacific Alliance have expressed the need to continue strengthening capacities and promoting technical exchanges in terms of MRV of carbon price instruments, since a greater deployment of these instruments is observed in the region. Additionally, there is a growing interest in better understanding the implications of Art 6 of the Paris Agreement in practice and the scope of a potential regional carbon market.
