The Paris Agreement entered into force on 4th November 2016 and it is the most ambitious effort to reduce Greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions after it was adopted by the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in 2015. The Parties have through the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) committed themselves to a significant reduction in the GHG emissions. This can be done through an effort in its own country or by using the market mechanism in Article 6 of the Agreement. After the 24th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP) in Katowice, Poland in December 2018, the finalization of Article 6 Rulebook was postponed to being finalized at the COP 25 in Chile.
