Liège Declaration, 9th of February 2024

At the end of the two-day Summit, participants called for collective, coordinated action to meet the challenges posed by climate change and protect people, ecosystems and the European economy from its effects.

The « Liège Declaration », the fruit of a collaborative process, is, on the one hand, a roadmap incorporating strong commitments from non-state actors themselves. On the other hand, it also includes a section on advocacy and a call to action, with concrete recommendations for European authorities, constituting an important milestone in the work of the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the EU. It represents a major contribution which can be taken into account by the European Environment and Climate Ministers.

The Liège Declaration could also be taken to major events on the international climate agenda 2024, notably the COP29 climate conference in Baku.
