Global NDC Conference 2019: Inspiring Action and Enabling Change, 12-14 June 2019

11th June 2019 by Jane Struver

We’ll be attending the Global NDC Conference in this week. The conference takes place from 12-14 June in Berlin, Germany.

This conference contributes to the implementation and updating of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) in 2019. It aims to inspire and enable policy makers and practitioners to accelerate the pace and scale of transformational change through NDC implementation in order to reach the long-term goals of the Paris Agreement.

In collaboration with CDP we’ll be delivering a workshop on Strengthening NDC ambition and accelerating implementation through private sector engagement and our Executive Director Margaret-Ann Splawn will participate in the opening plenary session on Friday.

Break-out Session

Schedule: Thursday 13 June, 11:00-12:45

Our session on Thursday will be answering one of the three key conference questions: What actions and innovations are driving NDC implementation and advancing sustainable development priorities?

The interactive session connects private sector and public policymaking and will use several case studies to cover the following topics: Disclosure & Transparency, Science-Based Targets and Accelerating Climate Finance

The session will be in collaboration with Jasmine Hyman from E Co Ltd, James Harries from Ricardo, Victor Osu from the Republic of Nigeria, Pietro Bertazzi  from CDP and Gillian Nelson from We Mean Business.

Plenary Session

Schedule: Friday 14 June 9:00-10:30

Margaret-Ann Splawn will join the plenary session on Friday which will address one of the other key conference questions: How do we increase the pace and scale of change to bring the NDCs in line with the Paris Agreement?

The keynote will be delivered by Andrea Meza of Costa Rica and Claudio Forner of the UNFCCC will moderate the panel The session will explore what ‘increasing pace and scale’ could mean in different contexts and identify the structural changes we all need to make for a zero-carbon economy by 2050.
