Global Climate Action Beyond 2020: Bolstering Non-State and Subnational Action for Ambition

The Workshop Global Climate Action Beyond 2020, held on 14-15 June 2019, explored the role of non-state and subnational actors and cooperative initiatives between them in post-2020 climate governance. The event convened policy-makers, researchers and practitioners from developed and developing countries, conferring an opportunity to exchange and to debate through interactive plenaries and as well as breakout sessions. As the negotiations to formulate a post-2020 agenda are underway, the workshop aimed not only at debating climate action within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), but also within the broader ecosystem of non-state and subnational climate action.

Global Climate Action Beyond 2020 put forward concrete proposals around four overarching themes: first, key interactions among non-Party actors, as well as between Parties and non-Party stakeholders, with a focus on stimulating actors that are not yet engaged on climate action; second, tracking and transparency to ensure credible climate actions; third, expanding and deepening climate action to overcome geographical and sectoral gaps and imbalances; and finally, just transition and synergies with other sustainable development questions as a premise to build a narrative for climate action.
