Datum: 2016-06-10 till 2016-06-10
Tid: 08:45 - 12:00
The Paris climate agreement (“Accord de Paris”) reached in December 2015 was the first-ever universal, legally binding global climate deal. The agreement set out a global action plan to put the world on track to limit global warming to well below 2°C. It was complemented by an action-oriented “agenda for solutions”, calling for a wide range of stakeholders – private sector, academia, local government and civil society – to contribute to the implementation of the agreement.
The seminar will particularly focus on the implementation of the COP21 agreement and the consequences for various stakeholders. It will notably explore the follow-up of the COP21 “agenda for solutions” focusing on the role of French and Swedish private sector to promote solutions to tackle climate change. It will also be an opportunity to share lessons learned and good practices of innovative Swedish and French projects.
