This COP22 side event, organised jointly with The Climate Group and C40 Cities, looks at what do cities, states and regions need to deliver on the 1.5°C temperature limit in the Paris Agreement.
Paris Agreement climate pledges (Nationally Determined Contributions, or NDCs) submitted to the UNFCCC only deliver greenhouse gas emission reductions policies that are heading towards 2.7°C warming, almost twice the 1.5˚C warming limit set out in this Agreement. This long term goal will not be achieved without engaging all political, social, economic, financial and cultural resources into climate action.
This event brings together a number of mayors, governors and other high level speakers who will present how they have defined what the 1.5°C limit means to them and present specific examples of types of actions needed to be delivered to reach this goal.
Laurence Tubiana, French Ambassador for Climate Change, will moderate the event.
More details will follow soon.
