After the postponement of COP26, 2021 is a crucial year to advance the Paris Agreement and raise global ambition. National and international recovery efforts must also align to these goals. This panel will explore climate diplomacy, the Green Deal, key multilateral events, and how the EU and partners’ climate action can contribute to peace.
Representatives of civil society, multilateral organisations and a partner country leader will join the European Union to discuss climate diplomacy and how the EU can push partners to raise ambition, including through building alliances and/or provision of support to mitigate emissions, adapt, address impacts and support green recovery. Panellists will also explore interplay of climate action, peace and stability in fragile countries.
