In 2021, all eyes are on the climate agenda as the world gears up for COP26 in Glasgow in the hope to accelerate the implementation of the Paris Agreement. Delivering on this ambitious global commitment will require developing, promoting and scaling all available low-emissions technologies and solutions without discrimination, including sustainable nuclear and hydro- power while seeking to balance between SDG 13 and SDG 7. However, to make this work, we will need better understanding and partnerships between the public and private sectors, working with relevant stakeholders and local communities to communicate clear benefits and tradeoffs. This session will bring stakeholders together to find new ways to make sure that economies use all available tools to manage long-term emissions.
Topics for discussion: ➢ How can all low-emissions solutions be used to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement, while maintaining the nationally-determined nature of contributions? ➢ What experiences and practices can be shared to facilitate the scaling of low-emissions solutions to economies that need them the most? ➢ How can transformations aimed at managing emissions foster sustainable growth and deliver jobs creation and upskilling? ➢ How can governments and businesses partner in low-emissions tech for a sustainable recovery?
