22nd Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate ChangeNov 15, 2016
As part of the 22nd Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change on Tuesday, November 15, a joint High-Level Segment is being held, to which more than 150 heads of States and Governments have been invited by His Majesty Mohammed VI, King of Morocco.
This event will give a strong impetus to the ongoing negotiations over the operationalization of the Paris Climate Agreement. It should also provide high-level guidance in enhancing pre-2020 ambition to reduce GHG emissions in order to comply with the countries’ INDC/NDC commitments.
At this point, despite the efforts of the governments and other stakeholders around the Globe to reduce GHG emissions, there is still a huge gap in attaining the 1,5 and 2 C goals. More on this gap and how to close it, can be obtained from the “Emissions Gap Report for 2016”: http://uneplive.unep.org/media/docs/theme/13/Emissions_Gap_Report_2016.pdf
On November 18, Serbia and UNDP are hosting a Side Event at the Marrakech UNFCCC CoP titled: :Supporting NDCs implementation in Serbia – the role of civil society organizations and local communities”. This event will, among other issues, present the new “Climate Smart Urban Development Challenge” project aiming to support climate resilience and GHG emissions reduction at municipal level. The event can be followed LIVE at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKp3jig4eVg&index=91&list=PL-m2oy1bnLzocWRks4MGBmGKdcf8Nxuns
