Other players do not distinguish  Continuous monitoring is applied in all sectors, but especially in coal, plus monthly for coal and annually for oil and gas  CH4 emission standardization mandated by law more often for coal than for oil and gas 4 Survey Conclusions ENERGY  Methane management attracting attention  Information regarding methane emissions has improved  Much effort and resources are going into remediation  A range of practices exist BUT  The essential conclusions remain unchanged:  Data collection is not rigorous nor comprehensive; estimates not verified  Procedures for MRV and remediation are variable  Enormous opportunity for knowledge enhancement and remediation 5 GEG Session Key Takeaways ENERGY  Survey identified critical gaps in information on methane emissions.  Recommended that work on best practice guidelines and methods to manage and reduce methane emissions be continued in the 2018– 2019 work plan.  Survey highlighted the need to update and refine data to reflect more accurately volumes of methane emissions.  Future work should be carried out in close collaboration with other international mechanisms, companies, organizations and associations  UNECE invites all interested parties to join this effort. 6 Survey + GEG Session Conclusions and recommendations ENERGY  Explores current practices and technologies along the value chain in key energy-related extractive industries.  Seeks to: • Determine and promote best practices for measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) of methane emissions in these industries. • Identify and disseminate best practices to reduce methane emissions.  Four subject-specific pillars: • Coal • Downstream Oil (processing through distribution), • Downstream Gas • Upstream Oil and Gas (i.e. exploration and production) 7 UNECE Project Methane management ENERGY 8 Extractive Industries BPG MRV BPG Remediation Upstream Oil Downstream Downstream Coal and Gas Oil Gas Next Steps ENERGY  UNECE in cooperation with US EPA has begun implementing the project on Methane Management in Extractive Industries.  Objective: • To increase capacity of the UNECE Member States for MRV and to reduce methane emissions in extractive industries.  Where we are?

In this context, I would like to emphasize the importance of Principle 6 of the 2006 draft on "International and domestic remedies" as regards adoption of relevant national and international legal frameworks to provide easy access to remedy by victims and that of Principle 7 concerning "Development of specific international regimes" whose consideration by Member States would improve the existing legal arsenal to prevent and provide remedy for victims of transboundary harm resulting from hazardous activities and pave the way for more harmonized compensation. (...) Moreover, as vast territories in Iran have been exposed to transboundary harm and many people have been suffering from and remain prone to serious health problems particularly resulting from haze, the Islamic Republic of Iran believes that should all Member States consider their due diligence in case of transboundary harm, no State will remain injured and uncompensated and no victim will remain without remedy. In the end, I have to reiterate our interest in following up the issue.

A Member shall apply safeguard measures only to the extent necessary to prevent or remedy serious injury and to facilitate adjustment. (...) Since the safeguard measure in US – Line Pipe is a tariff, not a quantitative restriction, the Appellate Body upheld the panel's conclusion that an importing Member is not required to demonstrate, at the time of imposition, that the line pipe measure was "necessary to prevent or remedy serious injury and to facilitate adjustment". (...) Rather, we believe that the question of adjustment, along with the question of preventing or remedying serious injury, must be a part of the authorities' reasoned explanation of the measure it has chosen to apply.

For the purposes of discussion it might be useful to separate analytically the issues of trigger and remedy while noting that: · The current quantity-based SSG has a fixed remedy ("one third of the level of the ordinary customs duty in effect in the year in which the action is taken") and a variable trigger; · The current price-based SSG has a fixed trigger and a remedy that varies depending on the difference between import price and price trigger; and · The new quantity- and price-based SSMs could, as proposed by G-33, have variable remedies and fixed triggers (or, to be more correct, the reference period for the trigger is fixed relative to the year in which the SSM might be applied). (...) However, this could be taken as a change in the character of the SSM from safeguard to countervailing duty and goes beyond the narrow objective of protecting against import quantity and price fluctuations per se. Quantity-based remedy 15. Several ideas have been put forward of what should be the remedy under the quantity-based SSM. (...) In consultations, other delegations have suggested caps on the remedy e.g. to prevent total duty rising above UR bound rates.
