Official COP24 side event

Katowice, 04.12.2018

The first round of NDCs lacked sufficient ambition and clarity to provide a pathway for reaching the Paris Agreement' long term goals. Learning from past experience, the side event presents strategies for improving countries' next NDCs based on research from several upcoming academic publications.

Presentations by:

  • Niklas Hoehne (New Climate Institute)
  • Saleem Huq (ICCCAD and IIED)
  • Angel Hsu (Yale University)
  • Pieter Pauw (FS-UNEP Centre for Climate and Sustainable Energy Finance)
