Article 6 of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) acknowledges that countries can voluntarily cooperate in the implementation of their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to allow for higher mitigation ambition and to promote sustainable development. It outlines the possibility of cooperative approaches and the transfer of Internationally Transferrable Mitigation Outcomes (ITMOs) between different actors, including countries and private sector companies, through bilateral agreements. Article 6.8 provides a framework for the creation of a UNFCCC centralized website where countries and other stakeholders can submit mitigation projects that are being planned and outline where support is needed. This online platform can be voluntarily used to facilitate matching projects with financial and technical support available in several focus areas.
