Read more energy sector leaders, investors, and civil society. To amplify the climate action that is being undertaken in 2020 and build momentum around the shift to a decarbonized economy ahead of COP26, the High-Level Champions for Global Climate Action are convening the Race to Zero Dialogues, in close collaboration with the Marrakech Partnership, as part of the ‘Race to Zero’ campaign. The Race to Zero Dialogues will serve as critical input to the UNFCCC Climate Dialogues from 23 Nov – Dec 4, which are advancing work governing the rules of the Paris Agreement. Together, both Dialogues will set the stage for the Anniversary of the Paris Agreement on 12 December as the world embarks on the ‘Race to Zero’ towards COP26 in 2021. A holistic policy approach – rooted in climate-safe energy development, yet also focused on short-term imperatives – would reap multiple benefits and help set the stage for a just transition. Speakers will discuss how to align short-term responses with long-term objectives to realise respective energy transitions with full economic and social benefits, for the future that is just, inclusive, and climate-safe. Linking the short-term recovery to medium and long-term strategies is paramount to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
