The Future of Global Climate Action in the UNFCCC

Since Paris and before, there have been increasing efforts to ensure that climate action by cities, businesses, states/regions, investors, and other sub- and nonstate actors are helping to advance the goals of the Paris Agreement. Current arrangements under the Marrakech Partnership (which broadly include the High-Level Champions, NAZCA, climate action events at COPs, regional climate weeks, etc.) will expire at the end of 2020. The question thus arises: what role might sub- and nonstate and cooperative climate action play in the UNFCCC process post 2020? What is the function of the “climate action space” in the UNFCCC process, and how can we make this more effective going forward?

Building on the High-Level Champions’ recent consultation and on previous meetings in Paris and Bonn, the meeting will serve as an opportunity to further discuss these ideas with interested Parties and other stakeholders.
