Booklet for sub-national stakeholders heading towards the COP 21 Agricultural and forestry focus

23 July 2015 - Special issues

At a time when the international community is striving to construct an overall framework for the future fight against climate change, regional actors have
already been taking measures for several years to mitigate their greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to the changing climate. The purpose of this booklet is to present the situation, tools and actions of French local authorities in this field. It will attempt to offer open, direct and informative access to the most up-to-date knowledge on climate change to encourage and facilitate the continuation of these approaches. It has been jointly produced by I4CE, ONERC and Météo-France, in partnership with ADEME and AFD which have also contributed to developing its content. DGEC and research laboratories such as CIRED and the CSTB also contributed with their expertise.

This booklet is aimed at local authorities, as well as public and private actors working alongside them, and addresses four themes identified by colour:
• The impacts of climate change
• Climate policies at a global, European and French level
• Economic tools available to local authorities
• Agricultural and forestry focus

    World bank and IMF Spring Meetings: How can the reformed institutions play a leading role in funding the transition?

    Rethinking how development can be financed to take into account the rising challenges of our time is a fastidious task, especially when thousands of experts, decision makers and practitioners want to leave their print. The outline of the new international financial architecture is being debated again this week, with more questions open for discussion than consensus on the answers.

    More and better finance: maximising positive climate impacts for a timely transition 

    Since the Paris Agreement in 2015, significant strides have been made to foster the commitment of countries and financial institutions to address the climate crisis and ensure that climate risks and opportunities are considered in investments. However, with emissions required to peak before 2025, our window of opportunity is rapidly closing to keep +1.5°C within reach. Financial needs to lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and to address adaptation priorities are increasing rapidly in the meantime. Luis Zamarioli Santos and Diana Cárdenas Monar, from I4CE, believe that commitment must urgently translate into action, and action must bring the urgent change the world needs. Both governments and public financial institutions have a central role to play to deliver more and better finance, maximising positive impacts. This blogpost highlights some opportunities to advance in the path for a systemic transformation, involving key stakeholders with a whole-economy approach.

    Ambitious alignment with the Paris Agreement in public development banks

    At the Spring Meetings, during an event with senior climate representatives from Multilateral Development Banks, I4CE, E3G, Germanwatch and NewClimate Institute officially launched a common position paper on what ambitous Paris alignment means for public development banks. This paper summarises years of research on Paris alignment to shed light on best practice and hopefully support decision makers in taking and implementing credible climate commitments.
