These pilots form the basis for dialogue with governments on key institutional and capacity building requirements that need to be met for decision-making on Article 6.

How We Work

The Climate Warehouse work program has initiated analytical and piloting work to kickstart the operationalization of Article 6 through learning-by-doing to ensure that climate markets can be rapidly scaled up when the Paris Agreement becomes effective in 2020.


The objective is to produce analytical and technical outputs to enable participation in Article 6 transactions by the WB’s client countries and shape the next generation of climate markets.

The Bank has four complementary work streams as shown in the chart below:
