Preparatory Workshop for Alliances and Coalitions Global Forum

Invitation Only

This workshop is convened by Galvanizing the Groundswell of Climate Actions and is organized in collaboration with the Stanley Center, the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE), WWF, and NRDC.

The objective of the workshop is to engage in a preparatory dialogue on crosscutting issues of the Action Agenda in order to make the discussions during the Forum as successful as possible. Specifically, the workshop will focus on three themes. First, how to define and operationalize a set of criteria or characteristics that initiatives should share to feature within the various circles of the Action Agenda, including the COP High-level Event, NAZCA, etc. Second, the workshop will consider institutional arrangements for the Action Agenda, including a) the ways in which initiatives, non-Party stakeholders, and other actors can play an effective role in supporting the strategic direction and workings of the Action Agenda, and b) the practical staffing and resource requirements required to support effective climate action through the Action Agenda. Third, the workshop will consider ongoing efforts to track the delivery of pledges from non-Party stakeholders and initiatives.

To inform the workshop, Galvanizing the Groundswell of Climate Actions will be preparing non-papers on criteria for cooperative initiatives, institutional arrangements, and tracking. The non-papers will be distributed ahead of the meeting.
