COP24 will be held in Poland in December 2018, three years after the adoption of the Paris Agreement. Has the implementation of the 2015 commitments been up to the climate challenge? How can States raise their ambitions and coordinate efforts for effective and equitable action? These are the challenges for the 24th annual conference on the fight against climate change.
Meanwhile, debates are taking place, commitments are being made and measures are being implemented on closer scales, such as at the level of the European Union (2030 Climate-Energy Package), France (Multiannual Energy Plan, National Low-Carbon Strategy 2050), and local authorities (territorial climate plans). What influence does the Paris Agreement have on these scales? Conversely, in what way do the actions of France and the European Union impact on international dynamics?
IDDRI, I4CE and La Fabrique Ecologique are organising a conference to decipher the practical issues of international climate negotiations. It is aimed equally at climate action stakeholders at the different scales and also journalists and a wider interested audience.
The conference will be organised around three issues that are key to the negotiations and to climate action at every scale: the coherence between the effective ambition of climate action and the collective objective, the funding of this action, and its support for short-term and medium-term social added value.
Each of these issues will be addressed with a short introduction, a discussion panel involving three key figures at the French, European and international levels, and an exchange with the audience.
Contributions in English will be simultaneously translated into French.
