LPAA (Lima to Paris Action Agenda) Focus Thematic Events and Action Day at COP21 – Forestry Panel - December 1st – Cop 21
During COP 21, the LPAA partners will respond to the ‘Lima Call for Climate Action’ launched at COP 20 by convening a series of events that showcase actions and commitments by LPAA stakeholders. The main Action Day is scheduled for Saturday, 5 December and will feature a High Level Meeting on Climate Action. Before and after Action Day, a series of LPAA Focus high level events will highlight commitments in each of the 12 LPAA Action Areas.
The LPAA Focus Thematic Events
The LPAA aims to demonstrate that the transition to a low-emission and climate-resilient social and economic development is both urgent and feasible – politically, economically and technologically. In fact, this transition is already under way. The ‘LPAA Thematic Focus’ events are official high-level thematic events where stakeholders will present issues in their action area and solution pathways to tackle these issues.
The 12 LPAA Thematic Focus events are intended to develop an in-depth understanding of the high stakes of inaction and share solutions in each area that hold great potential to accelerate transformational change.
Each action-oriented LPAA Focus is a venue to showcase: the breadth of results already achieved in this particular LPAA action area; new individual and cooperative announcements and commitments from non-state and state actors; and what needs to be done in the coming years.
The LPAA Focus events taken together should provide a clear vision of the magnitude of change happening right now on this planet. By emphasizing real world examples and demonstrating opportunities to curb emissions and increase resilience, these events will show how individual and collaborative leadership can accelerate transformation today and increase engagement over time.
