COP21 just around the corner

By Miriam Eisermann on 29 October 2015


In its contribution to the COP21, the EU has committed to a (at least) -40% CO2 objective for 2030. However, in order to get to this goal, more needs to be done than just following the business-as-usual scenario (leading to only 27% according to recent information from the European Environment Agency). With this in mind, will national leaders set stronger focus on assistance and support to cities after climate negotiations? What does the COP21 agenda in December actually tell us about the attention given to local and regional governments?

Amongst the hundreds of conferences, workshops and stands foreseen in and around Paris, Energy Cities has, indeed, identified a number of city-related events: the meeting of non-state actors, the Summit of local leaders, the workshop on the New Covenant of Mayors, the focus on 100% renewables, our own COP21 Dialogue...find the event of your interest!
