BC3 is an admitted observer organization that organizes Side Events at COP. This year, 2018 BC3 will be contributing by organizing its own Side Event in collaboration with the Centre For Research on Energy and Environmental Economics and Policy (IEFE) of Bocconi University Milan and the Foundation for Gaia. Since 2010 BC3 has been playing an active role at COPs with a variety of contributions.
The side-event addressing the implementation of climate policies and targets by non-state actors is organised by the Basque Centre for Climate Change (BC3) in collaboration with the Centre For Research on Energy and Environmental Economics and Policy (IEFE) of Bocconi University Milan and the Foundation for Gaia.
Regional governments, cities, businesses, non-governmental organisations and others are progressively committing to ambitious climate targets and policies, both in adaptation and mitigation. The challenge is how to implement them effectively and increase ambition. We will discuss recent developments and ways forward in non-state action.
