Delivering the Paris agreement

Abbey room
Tuesday, February 27, 2018 - 15:15 to 16:15

Climate change fundamentally challenges existing paradigms and pathways for development, raising questions of what development looks like in a changed and changeable climate; who pays for climate change mitigation, adaptation, and the inevitable loss and damage in rich and poor countries; and the political challenges of turning a global agreement on climate change into reality in all countries of the world. 

In December 2015 an historic agreement was reached at the 21st Conference of Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Paris. To date 174 of the 197 Parties to the Convention have ratified the Paris Agreement, which entered into force on 4th November 2016. Now the real work begins.

In this session, experts from civil society, HMG, and the private sector discuss the “package” needed to deliver the Paris Agreement. They will discuss what's needed to enable developing countries to meet their development goals in a changing climate, and what developed countries must do to support those efforts and decarbonise their economies to keep global warming "well below 2°C", and to "pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5°C". The session will also look at the role of the private sector in both the global North and South.

This session is for: policy and advocacy professionals, leaders and anyone interested in climate change
