On 9-19 November the High-Level Champions for Global Climate Action are convening the Race to Zero Dialogues, in close collaboration with the Marrakech Partnership.
Building a climate-neutral and resilient world remains as urgent as ever. Collaboration between Parties and non-Party stakeholders (businesses, cities, subnational regions, investors and civil society) will be essential to grapple with the complexities of global transformation and promote high ambition of all stakeholders in the course of recover better. That’s why the importance of participating in the Race To Zero Dialogues.
In the spirit of inclusivity, the events are being hosted across multiple time-zones, allowing myriad speakers from all over the world to reflect on progress made on mitigation and adaptation.
2020 has been a challenging year for everyone, but these dialogues will chart how entire sectors are already rapidly transitioning to a zero-carbon future, as defined in the Climate Action Pathways.
The Race To Zero Dialogues will serve as critical input to the UNFCCC Climate Dialogues from 23 Nov – Dec 4, which are advancing work governing the rules of the Paris Agreement. Together, both Dialogues will set the stage for the Anniversary of the Paris Agreement on 12 December as the world embarks on the ‘Race to Zero’ towards COP26 in 2021.
Each ‘Race to Zero’ virtual dialogue is organized by a key partner, under an umbrella programme curated by the High-Level Champions. Full details are here (links under ‘more information’ will be added in due course).
