The Future of the Global Climate Action Agenda: Potential Priorities and Options for Institutional Arrangements
On December 4, 2019, the Stanley Center for Peace and Security is co-hosting a roundtable discussion on “The Future of the Global Climate Action Agenda: Potential Priorities and Options for Institutional Arrangements,” along with WWF; Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford; and German Development Institute/Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE).
Since COP21, the UNFCCC process has increasingly welcomed and supported the “groundswell” of climate action from cities, regions, businesses, investors, civil society, and others. However, current arrangements agreed in Paris and Marrakech will expire in 2020. As such, there is an important opportunity to rethink how Global Climate Action (GCA) arrangements in the UNFCCC can support ambition and implementation under the Paris Agreement beyond 2020.
This roundtable builds on previous consultations and workshops held over the course of 2019. Our purpose is to clarify our collective thinking around what arrangements for GCA might be most suitable after 2020. The event’s goal is not to arrive at a common view. More discussions along these lines will be needed next year. Rather, we are brainstorming and discussing a wide array of options so that we can collectively understand more what might be possible and desirable.
