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.

    After Bonn and towards COP 29: the battle on finance and the role of financing plans for the transition

    Tense climate negotiations just ended in Bonn with limited progress on finance and the revised climate commitments under the Paris Agreement. During the opening ceremony of the sixtieth sessions of the subsidiary bodies (SB 60) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Simon Stiell –Executive Secretary– highlighted the need to “make serious progress on finance, the great enabler of climate action” and to aim for bolder, broader and inclusive third generation Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs 3.0) that “can serve as blueprints to propel economies and societies forward and drive more resilience”.

    EU election time: climate policy and finance challenges under scrutiny

    This weekend, citizens across the EU head to the polls. Many expect a swing to the right, in stark contrast to the “green wave” of 2019. In Brussels, leaders are looking ahead to a five-year mandate dominated by questions of security and competitiveness.  In these turbulent times, what is the future of Europe’s flagship climate package, the Green Deal? The Green Deal and the Fit for 55 package gave us the regulatory framework – but implementation requires investment. I4CE’s flagship EU Climate Investment Deficit report shows that climate spending must double to make the 2030 target achievable.

    Carbon pricing revenues: their role in financing the climate transition

    Last month, the Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC, Simon Stiell, stressed how important this and next year are for the achievement of the Paris Agreement and called for “a quantum leap in climate finance” ahead of the Spring Meetings of the World Bank Group and International Monetary Fund. Indeed, with emissions required to peak before 2025, our window of opportunity is rapidly closing to keep 1.5°C within reach. More and better finance is urgently needed. Carbon pricing policies and their revenues are part of the tools available that can help fill the climate finance gap.
