Event description
Together for Higher Ambition: How Domestic Alliances of Subnational Actors Are Championing Decarbonization Around the World

About this Event

At a time when national governments need to increase the mitigation ambition of their NDCs and long-term strategies to address the growing emissions gap and support these commitments with immediate action, the conversation must urgently be grounded nationally. It also needs to be broadened to include the actors that can speed up decarbonization in each economy.

What specific opportunities exist at the country-level? What benefits -- beyond carbon reduction -- would they bring? How are state and local governments, businesses, universities and civil society contributing and what can national governments do to unleash their entrepreneurship and leadership?

Please join us for a discussion with subnational leaders who are accelerating a global groundswell of local climate action around the world. Representatives from the private, academic, and public sectors will engage in a timely conversation about opportunities for higher ambition in their specific countries, and how the growing domestic coalitions that are bringing together subnational and non-state actors can accelerate decarbonization from the ground up.
