Side-event 12/12, 2pm : “Assessment and tracking of non-state climate actions: presentation of the 1st report of the Global Observatory of Non State Climate Action”

At COP24, debate and presentation of the report of the Observatory on non-State climate action with representatives of AFD, CAN-International, Schneider Electric, CDP, ICLEI, CEMR and I4CE

Where and when?

Side-event COP24

12 December 14:00-15:15

French Pavilion

Katowice, Poland


The Global Observatory of Non State Climate Action aims to make credible the commitments made by non-state actors in their diversity, to highlight the actions, to propose recommendations based on quantified results, with insights into qualitative actions in all areas that emit GHGs. This provides a link to the national framework and further explains national emission trajectories.

The Observatory aims to analyze each year the non-state climate action independently and to publish an annual report, with multiple objectives:

  • To show the action potential of non-state actors against climate change, giving a global vision of the quantified trends and initiatives of non-state actors. Contextualization of these quantitative and qualitative data with the evolution of GHGs at the global, national and sectoral levels and with the climate actions of non-state actors. The cross-referencing of sector-specific emissions data with non-state actions will explain the significant changes in emissions observed.
  • Identify sectors or subjects where climate action is insufficient and faces problems of implementation or documentation.

This side-event will be an opportunity to present the first report of the Global Observatory on Non-State Climate Action, within the framework of COP24 and on the Pavilion of France, with various partners who have contributed to this publication.
