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.

    European certification framework: a high-quality outline that does not guarantee the value of the final picture

    The European co-legislators have just reached an agreement on the content of the future European Carbon Removal Certification Framework (CRCF). Negotiations were swift and fruitful, against a backdrop of a general step back in the adoption of the various Green Deal texts. While today sees environmental issues played off against farmer’s livelihoods, this draft regulation brings these two elements together to create the conditions for investment in the transition of agriculture and forestry sectors. However, several details still need to be clarified to ensure that this framework actually enables effective and ambitious climate financing.

    European Climate Investment Deficit report: an investment pathway for Europe’s future

    Climate investments in the EU economy grew by 9% in 2022. This report finds that the European Green Deal is gaining economic momentum but investments in modernising energy, transport, and buildings must still double for the EU to hit 2030 climate targets.
