Non-Party Stakeholders are essential in the global effort to realise the goals of the Paris Climate Change Agreement. Wide-ranging cross-sectoral partnerships will be fundamental for nations to fulfil their objectives. In November, the UN Climate Change Conference (COP23), will showcase a wide array of the thousands of leading examples of game-changing climate actions from the private sector, cities and other sub-national governments across the world but more commitments and urgent actions are needed.
Organised by the UNSSC Knowledge Centre for Sustainable Development in partnership with UN Climate Change (UNFCCC), the webinar featured Yunus Arikan, Head of Global Policy and Advocacy at ICLEI, and James Grabert, Director, Sustainable Development Mechanisms, and Lead, Global Climate Action at UN Climate Change. The discussion was moderated by Simona Costanzo-Sow, Policy Support Team Lead, UNSSC Knowledge Centre for Sustainable Development.
