COP 24 – Side Event:
Implementation on non-state climate policies and targets
December 7th, 2018
Bug Room 11:30-13:00
Side Event theme:
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.
