Turning Points: Near-Term Climate Action for Pursuing 1.5°C

Invitation Only

In pursuing the 1.5° C temperature goal set by the Paris Agreement, new policies will be required in the near- and medium-term for reaching a turning point in global greenhouse gas emissions by 2020. Participants in this roundtable will discuss climate action objectives leading to 2020 by countries and nonparty actors in pursuit of the 1.5° C goal. The discussions will focus on how formulation of long-term strategies toward 1.5° C and identifying decarbonization and 100 percent renewable energy targets can spur ambitious climate action in the near- and medium-term; the policy options available for immediate climate action necessary to achieve 1.5° C; and the implications, challenges, and opportunities of different policy options. The Stanley Center is hosting this event with the Climate Vulnerable Forum, Climate Action Network, and CARE International.
