After CoP 24, Katowice: have the rules to deliver on the Paris Agreement been agreed?

Date: 18 Dec 2018 10:00 am — 11:30 am
Speaker(s): Lord Nicholas Stern, Dr Alina Averchenkova, Mr Archie Young, Dr Achala Abeysinghe
Venue: Fawcett House (Formerly Tower 2), Room 9.04, London School of Economics

CoP 24 in Katowice, Poland is being held three years after the landmark climate change agreement reached in Paris and only a few months after the IPPCC 1.5 degree report called for urgent action. Commitments on action however remain too low and action from all countries needs to be ramped up.

The imperative for all countries now is to implement at the pace and scale required to meet the mutually agreed scale. CoP 24 is a critical step on this process as the rules that govern signatories are being discussed, and hopefully agreed. Once the rules are established, they will set the requirements and trajectory for the ramping up commitments in 2020.

Join a panel of distinguished speakers drawn from those who participated in the latest summit and hear their reflection and insights into the progress that has been made, as well as thoughts on where to next.
