Engaging key stakeholders in the implementation of long-term strategies

Webinars - By : Louise KESSLER, PhD

Date : Thursday, 17th November , 13.30 16.30 (Paris time)

Location: IDFC pavilion and online

Organizing: I4CE IDDRI, ADEME

The Paris Agreement enacted two complementary dynamics for an ambitious action on climate. On the one hand, according to a bottom-up approach, the mitigation and adaptation commitments as well as the policies deployed in this respect fall to the national governments, who bear the responsibility to submit their national contributions to the global effort and to define the actions they intend to engage to achieve their objectives. On the other hand, non-state actors, notably companies, have been officially recognized for the first time within the framework of international negotiations, have significantly contributed to the construction of a favorable dynamic and have voluntarily taken more and more decarbonisation commitments.



However, these dynamics remain too disconnected at this stage. Countries continue to revise their Long-Term Strategies (LTSs) and Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), but these strategies are often missing some descriptions relevant for the implementation by the economic actors of the society. On the other hand, non-state actors are very dynamic, developing more and more concrete initiatives, but without strong governmental support as they are struggling in identifying where to act most effectively.


This session has shared lessons from different in-country initiatives regarding the current implementation of long-term strategies and stakeholder engagement. It facilitated a discussion with different stakeholders from finance ministries, from development banks, from the private sector, from experts from developing countries and from international institutions.


Moderator: Cassilde Brenière, Deputy Director of Operations / French development agency

    Green industry: the game is kicking off

    Faced with international competition exacerbated by the US Inflation Reduction Act, Team Europe (and longtime team member, France) is preparing its response. The team’s tactics tackle two challenges: greening existing industrial sectors such as steel or cement, and industrialising the production of green goods, particularly those cleantechs that will make the transition a reality, such as heat pumps or electrolysers. To meet the first challenge, the French government has put 5 to 10 billion euros of public money on the table to decarbonise the most polluting production sites, in return for private investment. But has the extent of the industrial investment needs been properly assessed?

    Investments to decarbonise heavy industry in France: what, how much and when?

    Industry: relocation and decarbonisation at the heart of the debate. The recent succession of crises (health, energy, geopolitical) and increased international competition have prompted France to look for ways to strengthen its industrial and energy sovereignty. It faces this challenge in addition to the challenge of decarbonising its industry. In this context, France and Europe are developing industrial policies with two objectives – relocation and decarbonisation – and with new tools such as the France 2030 plan and the Net Zero Industry Act at the European level. These policies target both ‘historical’ industries, such as steel and cement, and new clean technologies, from solar to batteries.

    The Net-Zero Industry Act: Designing Europe’s launchpad for a cleantech investment plan

    As the world enters a new era of cleantech competition, policymakers must confront two key policy questions – regulation and investment. The Net Zero Industry Act is Europe’s response to the former. Yet key concerns around permitting, sectoral targets and the scope of the Act will need to be addressed if it is to be effective, argue Thomas Pellerin-Carlin and Ciarán Humphreys in this blog post.
