Addressing climate change requires urgent policy action to drive a global infrastructure and technological transformation. More countries are implementing core climate policies but still a number of obstacles stand in the way of effective change. In the lead up to COP21 in Paris, it is even more vital to harness global negotiation momentum for climate policy action and to reflect upon the importance of a coordinated approach to help the transition towards low-carbon economies and the realisation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The new report 'Aligning Policies for a Low-carbon Economy' produced by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the International Energy Agency (IEA), the International Transport Forum (ITF) and the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) presents the first diagnosis of the alignments of policy and regulatory frameworks with climate policy goals. The report demonstrates how solving policy misalignments with climate is pivotal to the achievement of green and inclusive growth.
Join the Green Growth Knowledge Platform (GGKP) for a webinar exploring these issues on 5 October 2015, 15:00-16:30 (Paris time). The webinar will be moderated by Eliot Whittington (Deputy Director, Policy at Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership) and include presentations by Virginie Marchal (Policy Analyst, Climate Change, Biodiversity and Development Division, OECD Environment Directorate) and Simon Müller (Energy Analyst, International Energy Agency) and Richard Baron (Manager, OECD Round Table on Sustainable Development).
