This COP22 side event, organised jointly with The Climate Group and C40 Cities, looks at what cities, states and regions need to do deliver on the 1.5°C temperature limit in the Paris Agreement.
As part of this year's Climate Week NYC, we will hold an event focusing on how delivering on the 1.5°C temperature limit of the Paris Agreement will not only avoid severe risks and damages, especially to the most vulnerable, but will strongly contribute to global prosperity through enhanced food security, energy independence, health and wellbeing, livelihoods and resilience.
In light of the inclusion of the 1.5°C limit in the Paris Agreement, this UNFCCC side event looks at the avoided impacts and feasibility of holding warming below 1.5°C, the consequences for energy systems and the benefits of boosting pre-2025/2030 action.
On the eve of the Signing Ceremony of the Paris Agreement, our experts present their analysis of the delicately balanced global climate deal and the next steps for its entry into force and implementation. They also clarify the latest climate science, assess the emission reduction pledges to date and debate how the world can adopt pathways consistent with the agreement to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 °C.
Climate Analytics event focusing of some of the key issues for vulnerable countries following the adoption of the Paris Agreement, an exploration of what the 1.5°C temperature limit means for European climate policy and steps in the implementation of the agreement.
