New global synthesis Report on climate action by sector – Join us on December 1st for 4 days #ClimateChanceTalks !

On the occasion of the release of the new Sector-based Synthesis Report of non-state climate action, Climate Chance launches its #ClimateChanceTalks ! Join us from December 1st to 4th to debate, analyze the main trends observed in this 3rd edition of this Synthesis Report issued from the Climate Chance Observatory.

“Climate Chance Talks” to present and discuss the key takeways from our Global Synthesis Report on Climate Action by Sector 2020

The Climate Chance Observatory releases the 2020 Edition of its  Global Synthesis Report on Climate Action by Sector and invites you, for this occasion, to participate in its week of #ClimateChanceTalks to exchange and cross points of view of different actors around the trends and progress assessed for the last 3 years.

For this 3rd edition, the Climate Chance Observatory has dedicated its analysis to the impacts of COVID-19 on the sector-based climate strategies led by local governments, businesses and civil society around the world. In the 6 emissions sectors that we are analysing – energy production, transport, buildings, industries, waste and land use – the pandemic has turned the agendas upside down and many actors involved in the action against climate change are struggling to see a clear horizon and the « new normal ».

So… Has Covid accelerated or hampered climate strategies?
