Past event

Genève, Switzerland

UNDP Geneva is proposing a series of events bringing together “a coalition of the willing,” comprised of UN agencies, member states, academics, CSO and advocates to discuss the progress humanity has achieved in the last 10 years to create a model that can tackle the climate and biodiversity crisis more effectively in the future. Each event will address a specific thematic entry point, such as adaptation or, resilience in crisis affected countries, and will bring evidence of progress towards a transition towards a cleaner, safer, more equitable world that can be scaled up and replicated broadly.   The series is part of a wider effort to promote climate hope, mobilize energy for the Paris Agreement and influence climate policies to achieve high climate ambition by the COP30. Altogether it aims at contributing to the UNSG global campaign to advocate to deepen efforts to keep the 1.5° goal alive.    In collaboration with WMO, the first event, Keeping 1.5° alive, is a follow up to the launch of the Climate Promise action plan for 2025/2030 presented in April 2024 and will focus on the importance of having science-driven, ambitious climate policies in place through Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). It will tackle the theme of how to move from aspiration to action and how to develop and implement climate policies that are bold enough to preserve a healthy planet.
