Actions to Combat Climate Change: Roles of Key Stakeholders

The Paris Agreement stipulates the long-term goal of limiting global warming to well below 2℃ and to pursue efforts to limit the warming to 1.5℃ above pre-industrial levels. However, those nationally determined contributions (NDCs) that Parties have submitted up to now fall far short of the stipulated long-term goal. By focusing on the roles of key stakeholders (i.e. science community, business, finance and cities), this session aims to discuss specific actions with which they can contribute to ratchet up the ambition level of NDCs and realise the long-term goal of the Paris Agreement. An overarching theme is how short-term climate actions can be linked to long-term goals or visions from each stakeholder’s viewpoint.
