Towards Implementation: EU and India climate activities one year after Paris

Donnerstag, 10. November
18:30-20:00 Uhr, EU Pavillon

Alongside other programmes, the EU-India Climate Change Dialogue and Partnership aims to facilitate and foster cooperation in addressing the climate-change-related challenges that India faces with participation of  EU member states and businesses. adelphi and DG CLIMA co-convene a side event focusing on how to bring in experiences on technology and policy innovation in India and the EU to support the implementation of the NDCs. Linking NDC implementation to the key technology needs of both partners, as well as with the relevant policy frameworks to enable the diffusion of innovations is considered a key pillar of successfully implementing the Paris Agreement. Based on input statements by experts on innovative approaches in the EU-India context in different climate sectors, discussions with decision makers should help to shape a proactive agenda for the next years. Speakers will include representatives from DG CLIMA and the Indian Government.

Die Podiumsdiskussion wird von Dennis Tänzler (adelphi) moderiert.

Carbon Market Cooperation under the Paris Climate Regime

Samstag, 12. November
18.30 - 20:00 Uhr, EU Pavilion

Last year’s adoption of the Paris Agreement and launch of several carbon pricing initiatives, such as the CPLC, the G7 Carbon Market Platform, and the Ministerial Declaration on Carbon Markets, have provided unprecedented momentum for cooperation on carbon markets, including the formation of carbon market clubs. Cooperation can help move towards a more harmonised global carbon price and incentivise more countries to implement carbon pricing schemes, thus reducing competitiveness and carbon leakage concerns that accompany unilateral carbon pricing measures. Cooperating on carbon markets could hence help overcome some of the barriers that constrain the ambition of carbon pricing tools and contribute to scaling up climate action. In this event, experts and policymakers will provide a state of play of ongoing efforts towards linking and carbon market cooperation, discussing their potential for and value. The panel will further explore how the momentum for carbon market cooperation can be translated into concrete action.

Climate security and climate resilience – what role for diplomacy?

Montag, 14. November
10:30 - 12:00 Uhr, EU Pavillon

How can we deal with the impact of climate change on peace and stability? What are key climate-fragility risks and how may integrated policy responses be designed? Initiatives such as the G7 Working Group on Climate and Fragility or the Planetary Security Initiative (PSI) have been starting to focus on this nexus. In addition, there are numerous initiatives at the regional level that are aiming at building resilience under challenging environmental, political and social conditions. This also includes the strategic level - the EU level, for example, acknowledges the role of climate security and resilience in the EU Global Strategy. This side event brings together a selected group of policy-makers and experts to discuss relevant programmes and policies to strengthen resilience related to climate change and security. The panelists will also report on the state of play of their initiatives and on how adaptation, humanitarian aid and peacebuilding could be linked in order to integrate approaches to resilience building.

Managing land and water and addressing climate-fragility risks for resilient development and food security

Dienstag, 15. November
16:00 - 17:30 Uhr, African Pavilion, Room 2

This side-event is a workshop with a selected group of high-level officials and experts. The participants will discuss relevant programmes and policies of African Regional Economic Communitiesin land and water management to identify lessons learned and to develop a deeper understanding of the potential to address and to integrate climate-fragility risks. The aim is to identify possible ways forward along the following guiding questions: What are the most pressing regional climate-fragility risks to development? How are they addressed and where are gaps? How can  climate risks be integrated into regional land and water management programmes?

To this end, what can be the role of early warning centres of the Regional Economic Communities and Regional Mechanisms for Conflict Prevention, Management and Resolution (RECs/RMs) in building national early warning capacities on potential climate change-related conflicts? How can financial and economic instruments such as the African Risk Capacity’s agricultural insurance scheme help build local resilience to climate-fragility risks by improving food security and managing disaster risks?

From Climate Finance Readiness to formulation of bankable projects: supporting the MENA Region through an online Help Desk Platform

Dienstag, 15. November
19:00 - 20:30 Uhr, Green Zone, Room 6 - Moulouya

The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region is the most water scarce region of the world. The region is home to 6.3 % of the world’s population but has access to less than 1.4 % of the world’s renewable fresh water. Several factors combined are rapidly increasing the pressure on water resources: population growth, climate change, increasing demand and genuine supply risks. Water scarcity exacerbated by climate change poses a serious threat to the sustainable development of arid countries of this region. MENA countries are preparing adaptation policies and measures to combat climate change. However, implementation of these policies and measures require international support in terms of funding, capacity building and technological transfer.

The GIZ through its Regional Program ACCWaM intends to initiate an online interactive platform to provide reliable and customized information to government and non-government stakeholders (NGOs, academia, private sector) on climate finance opportunities and procedures. The event is organized in cooperation with the League for Arab States. It will be an opportuninty to exchange knowledge on the follwing key topics: Adaptation issues and solutions in the MENA region; overview of the international climate finance architecture; lessons learnt from MENA countries with respect to international climate finance; presentation of the MENA climate finance help desk plateform: content, registration and available technical assistance.

“Multi-level and multi-stakeholder governance for climate action: learning from good practices"

Mittwoch, 16. November
11:00 - 12:30 Uhr, Green Zone

In 2016 the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), the European Committee of the Regions (CoR), the French Committee for Sustainable Development (Committee 21 France - C21F) and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) decided to work together to create a new international coalition on climate dedicated to multilevel and multi-stakeholder governance. They propose a methodological coalition which aims to facilitate dialogue and multi-stakeholder actions for faster, more efficient and inclusive implementation of the Paris agreement.
