Joint Agreements: Enabling Cooperative Action by Countries in Paris

Invitation Only

The 2015 international climate agreement is an opportunity to enable groups of countries that wish to lead by
undertaking cooperative actions to do so.

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) regime can expand ambitious efforts by establishing “joint agreements” linked to the broader agreement—thereby recognizing, facilitating, and supporting ambitious action by groups of countries.

Participants will be given the opportunity to explore joint agreements. They will discuss the implications of taking this approach forward in the UNFCCC and opportunities for countries to move “further and faster” in specific issue areas both in the pre-2020 and post-2020 time frames.
