Response measures is an important component of the Paris Agreement and finds resonance in the just transition, economic diversification and decarbonisation discussions. Its international dimension looks at the effects arising from mitigation policies taken by Parties and their cross-border impacts, both positive and negative.
ERCST’s work on response measures has been pioneering in developing a methodology for reporting on the impacts of response measures and by practically applying it with country case studies. In 2019, ERCST carried out a case study on ‘Reporting on response measures under biennial update reporting in Chile’.
In 2021, ERCST developed a case study for ‘Reporting the socio-economic impacts of response measures in Ghana’. The work has been undertaken as a ‘live’ iterative activity, with work done, followed by webinars with local stakeholders and response measures negotiators, in order to gather feedback, refine the methodology and foster capacity building among relevant stakeholders. This work will feed into the discussions of KCI and the Forum on response measures and will culminate with the presentation of the case study at a side event organised at COP26.
Additionally, during 2021, ERCST held a number of workshops under the ‘Informal Dialogue on Response Measures’ initiative to discuss different topics, including Just Transition, CBAM and the progress of the work plan of the KCI and the Forum.
In 2022, ERCST plans to continue holding discussions under the Informal Dialogue project, to continue contributing to the progress of the KCI and the Forum and potentially to develop another country case study for reporting the impacts of response measures.
