ICLEI climate trailblazers: Leading the way in ambitious, inclusive and integrated climate action from Paris to Belém

Stage 3 (Ground floor)
21/06/2024, 13:30 - 15:00

This session aims to showcase ICLEI Members’ climate action leadership since the Paris Agreement through sharing good practices and tools that have positioned them well to set even more ambitious, inclusive, multilevel, and integrated goals and take action leading up to UNFCCC COP30 in Belém, Brazil in 2025. How can local and regional governments align with and localize their nations’ climate goals? What are crucial policy instruments leaders have been able to leverage to reach their goals? We’ll explore concrete examples of successes from across the ICLEI network.
