CCAP at Paris COP21
CCAP participated in the 21st Conference of Parties (COP21) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), in Paris, France from November 30 – December 11, 2015. COP21 was aimed at adopting a global agreement on climate. The Paris Agreement is an ambitious global framework founded on the commitment shown by nearly all Parties—covering 95% of global emissions—in their submission of Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs). CCAP worked closely with developing countries to analyze key INDCs and assess how best they can receive support to convert these into implementable policies and measures, and finance-ready investment plans. CCAP actively participated on the sidelines of the negotiations, including hosting a side event on transformation in the energy sector and achieving INDC targets. We also participated in bilateral meetings and a variety of other public and private events on mitigation, finance, Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs), INDCs, and a global climate agreement.
Schedule of Events
CCAP-ICSE side event: Wednesday, December 2, 11:30 AM -1:00 PM, Observer Room 08
This event will examine how countries can pursue energy sector transformation. Developing and developed country presenters will share their experiences in promoting clean energy and anticipated next steps on turning their INDCs into reality in the sector. A panel of executives from private sector clean energy firms will discuss how policies and technology advancements are creating opportunities to deploy cleaner sources of electricity generation and increase energy efficiency to meet climate change and clean energy policy targets.
Mitigation Momentum: Tuesday, December 1, 10:00-12:00 pm, German Pavilion
CCAP Director of International Policy Analysis, Laurence Blandford, will present at the launch of a new report on the links between NAMAs and INDCs, hosted by the Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN) and Ecofys Germany. CCAP authored a chapter on Financing NAMAs and INDCs, which explores the role of NAMAs as an implementation tool for INDCs.
