International Policy Coordination to Equitably Phase Down Fossil Fuel Production

Invitation Only

Awareness is growing of the need to align the production of coal, oil, and gas with global climate and sustainable development goals. A globally just transition from the fossil-fuel system currently underpinning the global economy will require significant international coordination and cooperation. We are initiating a dialogue over the next several months to explore existing efforts and opportunities to enhance global cooperation and collective action to align production with the Paris Agreement’s climate goal of limiting warming to below 1.5°C. 

The Stanley Center for Peace and Security and the Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty Initiative organize this preliminary scoping meeting with the following objectives:

  1. Gather a core community of interested stakeholders to examine and advance international policy goals related to equitably phasing down coal, oil, and gas production. 
  2. Define a set of key issues that need to be addressed by international policy in order to phase down fossil fuel production in line with a global just and equitable transition and 1.5°C for future workshops and dialogues.
  3. Develop a roadmap for building alignment over the next year on international policy changes related to equitably phasing down fossil fuel production. 

This informal discussion gathers 15-20 participants representing key points of view in efforts to advance the phase-down of fossil fuel supplies at the international level.
