2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference
Shifting gears to boost multilevel climate action
The first NDCs are not fully compatible with the Paris Agreement because they were all prepared before its adoption. In other words, they did not address key goals such as multilevel action, climate neutrality and the 1.5°C targets. That is why the success of COP26 depends on the new and ambitious NDCs to be prepared before COP26 by all nations, in collaboration with local and regional governments.
“Multilevel Action COP” is the motto of the LGMA COP26 Roadmap, which covers seven pillars:
- Raise ambition
- NDC vertical integration and transparency
- Localize climate finance
- Balanced approach in mitigation and adaptation
- Link climate to circular economy and nature
- Amplify global climate action
- Climate Justice and Social Equity
