Bonn Climate Change Conference
The #MultiLevelActionDelivers Agenda for Dubai
Over the past 10 days, the LGMA Constituency was active at all sessions of Global Stocktake Technical Dialogues, Art6.8 in-session workshop, as well as Global Climate Action agenda and COP28 Presidency consultations, in particular at Youth Stocktake and Sharm El Sheikh Adaptation Agenda.
In collaboration with Daring Cities 2023, we convened the first in-person session of LGMA Leaders Dialogue with UNFCCC Friends of Multilevel Action, with active and diverse participation of UNFCCC delegations from both global North and South.
Toward #MultiLevelActionDelivers: Latest Successes
For the LGMA, the annual COP serves as only one moment in a busy calendar. We demonstrate multilevel action delivers all year long. At the Bonn Climate Conference 6 to 16 June 2022, one major outcome was the UNFCCC’s recognition that the Paris Agreement’s Global Stocktake can be a local-level process culminating at COP28 this year. During World Urban Forum in Kotawice, Poland, from 26 to 30 June 2022, the LGMA presented Sharon Dijksma, Mayor of Utrecht, the Netherlands, as the Special Envoy for COP27 Ministerials and Mohamed Sefiani, Mayor of Chefchaouen, Morocco, as the Special Envoy for Africa for COP27.
