In partnership with the
Czech Presidency of the Council of the European Union
, the European Committee of the Regions (CoR) is organising the Multilevel
Climate and Energy Dialogue on the UN Climate Change Conference 2022
The upcoming UNFCCC COP27 will be held at a turning point in history. The
two reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)
published this year confirmed that the window to secure a liveable future
is closing fast and the implications of the war in Ukraine on energy supply
and prices threaten to impact international climate negotiations. The
European Union, under the leadership of the Czech Presidency, will need to
continue spearheading global climate action, ensuring that the energy
crisis does not endanger the Paris Agreement goals and that the pledges and
announcements on mitigation, adaptation and climate finance made at COP26
in Glasgow are implemented.
This Multilevel Climate and Energy Dialogue will bring together all levels
of government in order to provide concrete and relevant feedback on the
EU's position for COP27. The main issues to be tackled are:
- Are current efforts in the EU and abroad adequate to keep global average
temperature rise to below 1.5 degrees Celsius?
- In view of the current geopolitical situation, is it foreseen that major
emitters will raise their pre-2030 ambition?
- One of the main priorities of COP27 is to advance on the Global Goal on
Adaptation, how can the EU advance on this and increase support to the
countries and people most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change?
- What are the key barriers we need to overcome to realise vertical and
horizontal contribution to climate action?
- Local and regional authorities implement the majority of adaptation and
loss and damage actions, how can they best be enabled to become more
resilient and avert and minimize loss and damage?
The event will take place on:
8 September 2022 from 14.30 p.m. until 17.00 p.m.
Room: JDE 53
The event will be open to public viewership. Please register
to the event no later than Thursday, 1 September 2022, 6.00 p.m.
The event agenda and all additional documents may be found in the sidebar
on the right.
