Forestry and biodiversity : Forest for people

  • Climate Alliance
  • COICA

Salle 200

Forestry and biodiversity

The Inclusion of REDD+ in Paris climate agreement has been heralded as major step forward on deforestation. However the REDD system still faces challenges like leakages within a country and between countries or indigenous rights. At the same time putting national governments in charge of forest conservation and the potential profits from carbon offsets, REDD exacerbates an already extreme imbalance of power between central authorities and local indigenous groups.

At Climate Chance we will address the following topics:

- An analysis of the outcomes of the Paris agreement and their implication for the Forests and the people living in and from it (e.g. the indigenous peoples)

- Update on the current processes related to forests and good examples (based on the presentations from the Lyon Summit)

- Elaborate (also based on the documents from last year) joint proposal for recommendations for the Habitat and COP22 process (considering the SDGs and CBD processes as well).

Decentralised Cooperation and Partnerships.

The challenges set by climate change mean that we have to rethink traditional approaches to interregional relations. Decentralised cooperation should make it possible to work on shared challenges in attenuating and adapting to climate change, to compare practices, bolster the ability to action and access funding, and innovate to protect the climate and drive growth. The Forum will review progress on the coalition that has already been formed and that will be significantly reinforced at Climate Chance.

Regional Planning

Local authorities carry solutions for their regions in terms of attenuation and adaptation. Regional and urban planning is a matrix that allows actions upstream to limit greenhouse gas emissions and to anticipate the adaptation to climate change. Integrated and co-built planning enables a large number of subjects on sustainable cities to be covered: urban development, sustainable mobility, habitat, management of land and natural resources, etc.

Following the World Summit on Climate and Territories, the aim of the Climate Chance Planning forum is to think about how to implement this sustainable, integrated planning, and with what tools, to enable city actors to choose "the best tool at the best moment".

  • More than 6 speakers

Auditorium 450



Moderator: Rene Wyndham

Causing 70% of greenhouse gas emissions, cities concentrate a number of issues, but also a wide diversity of solutions. Fighting against climate change may be complementary but also contradictory to public policy objectives. How can we reconcile the issues of social cohesion, economic attractiveness, and quality of life with the necessity to preserve the climate? How can the synergies between all regional actors allow them to make energy transition a development factor? Coordinated by Eurocities (over 135 European metropolitan areas) this plenary session will allow exchanges between European Mayors, trade unions, business owners and official representatives of young people within international negotiations.

Facilitate access to finance to enhance local climate action

Good local climate projects exist all around the world and so do funds to finance their implementation. However the latter rarely find their way to the former, and vice versa. To bridge this gap numerous initiatives can support cities develop bankable projects and prove the sustainability and impacts of their actions, such as the Transformative Actions Program (TAP), climate finance trainings, project-preparation facilities, innovative finance mechanisms and sustainability standards.

Salle 200

Energy: generation, distribution, consumption.

Forum objectives: Highlight the

commitments and achievements by cities (and regions) tending towards 100%

renewable energies.

The Context:

After the Lyon Summit, the COP21 with the Paris Agreement was a formidable accelerator for raising awareness of climate challenges and raise the ambitions of non-state actors. By accepting the objective of remaining below 2 °C in global warming, and as far as possible at 1.5 °C, the Paris Agreement fixed a clear course towards energy transition. Local authorities, and particularly cities worldwide, have clearly understood this. On 4 December, during the Climate Summit for Local Leaders, organised at the Paris City Hall, over 700 local authorities made strong commitments, in particular to use 100% renewable energies by 2050. A dynamic movement has begun. The challenge in 2016 and 2017 is to transform this ambition into tangible changes.

The Debate:

Cities can and wish to be leaders in this transition to a more sober, more decentralised, more participative and more environmentally-friendly energy model. To achieve this, they need to co-build with other actors, in and around their regions.

Initiatives have been launched on all continents accompanied by significant democratic changes with increased participation by inhabitants and the start of renewable energy production projects through citizen investment - all of this contributes to the appropriation of the issues and energy choices by the population. How do they do it? What obstacles need to be overcome?

To continue the dynamic movement of 2015, it is important for the first cities to translate their 100% renewable energy targets into concrete actions to move to this trajectory. The forum organisers will identify the cities that have implemented or envisage implementing reproducible transformation actions that move in the direction of 100% renewable energies; we will mobilise them in order to have exemplary achievements and communicate on these successes.

Circular economy as an opportunity to address climate change

  • ACR+
  • Orée

Salle 150

Economie Circulaire et Climat

Circular economy aims at closing the loop of resources and reducing the environmental impact of the product life cycle at all stages of the process (production, distribution, consumption), thus replacing the traditional model of economic growth (understood as a linear economy: resource extraction / product making / waste disposal). Circular economy will provide essential support to climate friendly strategies by minimising materials, water and energy consumption, and ensuring that these resources are continually cycling through the economy. In practice, circular economy will contribute to reduce the need of extracting virgin resources (e.g. via the extension of products lifetime and efficiency, as well as their shared use, reuse and recycling), to develop short cycles and cascading inside value chains (therefore minimising impacts related to transport), as well as to create a positive dynamic involving all participants of the value chain or/and of a territory.

A succesful implementation of circular economy implies contribution from all stakeholders active in the chain (e.g. product designers, resource extractors, producers, distributors, consumers, collectors of end-of-life products and used water, recyclers, etc). In addition, actors that can have a direct influence or be directly impacted by the circular economy strategy should also be involved (e.g. residents in the concerned area, local authorities in charge of proper implementation, academic establishments, financial institutions, etc.). Therefore, non-state actors must be largely involved in the process and share the governance of circular economy strategies development and implementation, in order to contribute to the co-creation of eco-innovative actions based on synergy and complementarity. Exchanges of best practices at European and International level remain crucial.

The Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie (OIF) and its Institut de la Francophonie pour le Développement Durable (Francophonie Institute for Sustainable Development) have mobilised around climate issues in order to promote a cross-cutting approach to the fight against climate change, particularly via UN negotiations. The Francophone area is also the arena for many important dynamics driven by non-state actors, and young people in particular.

All French-speaking stakeholders will be gathered at this forum to draw up a common roadmap, analyse their complementarities, promote a Francophone approach to the fight against climate change, and strengthen the presence of French-speaking communities on these issues.

Moderator: Rene Wyndham

Today, Africa still has around 600 million people who do not have access to electricity, and energy production is often expensive and non-sustainable for heating, lighting, transport, etc. Faced with demographic challenges, rural exodus and urban concentration, Africa must rapidly forge sustainable solutions, to meet the challenges of education, health, economic activities, etc., whilst avoiding the explosion of greenhouse gas emissions tomorrow that would make the fight against world climate change even more difficult. The initiatives are multiplying but do they draw a credible scenario? The panel will bring together a diversity of actors, will allow a fresh perspective on the issues and emergencies, whilst prioritizing the actions to be undertaken and questioning their complementarity.

Financing

Giving voice to the great diversity of stakeholders that play a role at the various steps of the financing of resilient and inclusive local investments, a forum dedicated to Financing will take place during the Nantes Summit. This forum will be the opportunity to take stock of the progress and challenges for the implementation of the commitments took during the Lyon Summit “Climate and Territories”, and then during the COP21 in Paris in 2015:

· Developing a systemic and collaborative territorial approach, that take into considerations gender equality, demographic changes and migrations;

· Creating an enabling environment for the mobilization, management and efficient use of local resources, with a focus on investment in rural and urban areas.

· Building a global platform for capacity-building and for supporting cooperation and solidarity between territories.

The reflection on the priority issues of the coalition will address in particular dissemination of information, capacity-building, local autonomy and power, and the implementation of appropriate tools for local governments and small and medium organizations.

As a key step in the process of co-building a coalition of non-state actors on subnational climate finance, this Forum dedicated to financing will aim to:

- Gather a widened coalition of stakeholders effectively committed on the thematic of financing local climate action ;

- Identifying collectively the priority issues on which the coalition is committed to work;

- Finding an agreement on the governance and operating of this coalition, given the stakes previously identified, existing frameworks and contexts, and the need to open up to other stakeholders ;

- Finalizing the joint-roadmap that will define precisely the means of implementation of the coalition, as well as the joint objectives and recommendations that its members will provide during the Habitat III Summit and the COP22.

Mobility, a source of solutions to tackle climate change

  • CODATU
  • PPMC

Salle 200

Mobility and transport

In our globalised world, the need for mobility increases everyday for both people and goods, The transport sector is now responsible for nearly 28% of all energy-related greenhouse gas emissions in the world (IEA 2014, IPCC 2015). In cities in particular, mobility needs are growing increasingly, and with two-third of the humanity living in cities in 2050, travel demand is likely to explode, and so will related GHG emissions if nothing is done. Current urban lifestyle implies also a dramatic increase in freight transport, which represents more and more traffic, in particular in emerging cities. In that context, urban and sub-urban mobility are not only a major challenge for cities, but also for countries, both from the North and the South if they want to reduce their global emissions and/or prevent a dramatic increase in emissions. The good news is two-fold: (1) shifting toward a sustainable mobility that is inclusive and accessible for all is not only feasible, but also much less costly than current car-oriented mobility, (2) the transport sector is engaged to accelerate this shift. This forum will present current situation, the efforts still to be made, examples of existing good practices and initiatives from the Global Climate Action Agenda (GCAA) that are currently being undertaken and need support to scale up.

Climate change impacts on agriculture

  • ROPPA

Salle 150

Agriculture

Global warming threatens food security for numerous populations. Agriculture and food together are responsible for a significant share of greenhouse gas emissions (an estimated 30 to 50%) To overcome this double challenge requires the definition of sustainable, inclusive, resilient and efficient food systems.

Cities and regions, as areas for production, consumption and exchange, are an essential driver for the necessary systemic change. This transformation calls for the mobilisation of all actors in these local food systems, and coordinated actions at different levels of governance.

Water and Climate

Water is the main vector through which climate changes will affect societies and eco-systems. But water also carries solutions to attenuate and adapt. This forum will highlight the solutions and initiatives by non-state actors committed to water and the climate. It will present the mobilisation of these actors within the Paris Agreement, through three initiatives for water by the Global Change Action Agenda, and others. It will aim to enhance the ambitions of the Paris Agreement through the roadmap of the coalition of non-state actors for water and the climate.

Energy transition and Employment

The energy transition that is imposed by the climate challenge is also the opportunity to create jobs and re-energize our economies on a regional level. This transition brings with it new social and economic paradigms. It is through regional dialogue that local authorities, businesses and employees will contribute to the transformation of production systems for use in new sectors, and deliver the training needed to match the new jobs. CLIMATE CHANCE is a platform to reinforce this dialogue and to implement concrete multi-actor initiatives to promote the transition to a job-creating low carbon economy.

Ocean and Coastline

As the planet's main "lung", the ocean is central to climate control. Its role in climate control, though, has been severely disrupted by both pollution and an increasing and poorly proportioned pressure on marine resources. Since Lima and the COP20, issues relating to the role of coasts and oceans in the fight against climate change are being increasingly taken into account and included in negotiations. There is much still to be organised, but there is now a visible non-state mobilisation on this issue. We now need to fertilize existing initiatives, to innovate and multiply concrete projects and the involvement of the regions in order to obtain significant progress at the COP22.

COOP6 - Climate and ethics: the meaning of stakeholders' commitment

Salle I

Decentralised Cooperation and Partnerships.

Climate issues deserve more than just a marketing-based approach. Discussions and concrete commitments are all very well, but do they provide an effective response to the challenges ahead? Looking at the solutions agenda, or at the list of voluntary State commitments, one may well doubt it. We need to really focus on explaining, once and for all, the responsibility of each one of us towards the common good, and especially concerning the climate. Not doing this means navigating a path between schizophrenia and hypocrisy.

Salle 300

Education, Mobilisation, Awarness

In all regions, the path to transition assumes the worldwide emergence of people connected to their environment, conscious of the challenges and capable of taking initiatives. This implies that everyone, throughout their lives, is educated in the environment and sustainable development, and requires a profound transformation of education and training systems, as well as changes in education methods and content.

Without an emancipatory education, that develops a critical spirit and provides each individual with the capabilities of "doing together", no ecological, economic or social transition is possible. Everyone has to understand the impact our lifestyle has on the world, and be able to imagine how life would be in a low carbon society. Education is a powerful driver to meet the challenges of the climate and development. The region is the privileged area for deploying these education efforts that involve all stakeholders. CLIMATE CHANCE will take stock of progress between the COP21 and COP22 and enable the definition of concrete initiatives to implement or support in order to sustainably insert the theme of education and young people in the Action Agenda and the implementation of the Paris Agreement.

Climate Change Adaptation & Resilience – exploring and unlocking opportunities

Salle 200

Adaptation / Résilience

More frequent and intense weather-related events (including storms, floods, droughts and heat waves) are raising the collective awareness – they are calling for immediate adaptation action to make our territories more resilient and liveable.

This is a major challenge, but to be turned into opportunities. Practical experiences have already shown that adaptation can enable positive synergies between state and non-state actors, enhance horizontal and vertical cooperation, facilitate interactions between research/science and policy, trigger a more transversal approach across sectors (public services, buildings and infrastructure, planning, water/food …), and stimulate investment and innovation.

Non-state actors have a major role to play in building resilience. The forum on adaptation and resilience will be a great occasion to turn the spotlight on some of these solutions ahead of COP22, promote further collaboration and shape the cooperation of all concerned actors for the upcoming years.
