Objective of the event

To discuss among national authorities on the use of carbon pricing instruments in LAC, their importance for the fulfilment of emission reduction commitments set forth in NDCs. This event also aims to provide a space for the exchange of ideas on existing initiatives in the region on carbon pricing instruments.

Description

In this side event national authorities and technicians from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica and Mexico, linked to the Ministries of Finance, Planning and Energy, will discuss experiences of the use of carbon pricing instruments: carbon taxes, emissions trading systems, social price of carbon, among others, and their contribution to meeting the decarbonisation goals in the countries. Similarly, this event will feature a panel where organisations, programmes, networks or initiatives are invited to share the work they have been doing to promote the use of carbon pricing instruments.
