Plenary Session 5

10:55 - 12:45 Room No.301+302

Innovators Catching the Winds of Transition

The Paris Agreement—the normative foundation that the international community agreed upon to help guide global decarbonisation by mid-century— was adopted at COP21 in 2015 and entered into force in 2016. Currently international negotiations are continuing under the UNFCCC process to operationalise the Agreement including developing and adopting a detailed implementation of guidelines (also known as the “Paris Rulebook”) at COP24, in December this year. With COP24 rapidly approaching, a variety of different options have been put on the negotiating table.
Against this background, this session aims to introduce the most updated information pertaining to international negotiations and examine potential proposals on important elements of the Rulebook to be adopted at COP24. The session will start with a short framing presentation followed by presentations from IGES researchers on selected items of the Paris Agreement. The presentation topics will include transparency, nationally determined contributions (NDCs), market mechanisms, finance and the global stocktake, since rules for those particular elements have substantial implications for domestic
policies and business strategies. After a short, moderated discussion between presenters, the session will open the floor for an interactive exchange of views with the audience.
