High Level Discussion – 2017 Plans Transport Action Area under the Global Climate Action Agenda


The Paris Agreement on Climate Change calls for global CO2 reductions to hold climate warming to a ‘well-below-2-degrees’ Celsius target, which is typically taken as a 1.5-degree Celsius target. At the same time, the Paris Agreement calls for accelerated action on Adaptation.
Action and activities on Transport under the Global Climate Action Agenda (GCAA) in COP22 have been facilitated by the GCCA Transport Team consisting of the Paris Process on Mobility and Climate (PPMC) the Energy Investment Company (SIE) and the Ministries of Transport and Environment of Morocco and France at the request of the High Level Champions Laurence Tubiana (France) and Hakima El Haite (Morocco).
The purpose of the November 16 High Level Discussion is to review and discuss the 2017 plans for Transport under the Global Climate Action on Adaptation and Mitigation to enable the GCA Transport Team to make an early start with follow-up activities to COP22 to ensure that the Transport sector is well prepared for the UNFCCC meeting in May 2017 and for COP23.
