Special Event hosted by the COP20/ CMP10 Presidency “Follow-up on Non-state Actors commitments on Climate Action” Objectives:
Pre-2020 climate action requires, as a priority, the fulfillment of existing obligations under the Convention and the Kyoto Protocol. Additionally, State and non-state actors should continue to identify, scale-up and assess new opportunities with high mitigation potential until and after 2020. The government of Peru, as COP 20 Presidency, is committed to support the needed acceleration of climate action and give recognition to all actors in their role to combat climate change. In order to do so, 11 December will be “Lima Climate Action Day” at COP20/CMP10. Activities during this day will seek to strengthen the global message on the need to increase both ambition and multi-stakeholder collaboration on climate change. As part of a series of activities, Peru will convene a special event to:
 
Recognize and encourage cooperative climate initiatives.
 
Follow up on quantified climate action commitments by state and non-state actors.
 
Explore ways to scale-up initiatives by discussing main barriers and strategies.
 
Assess the role of cooperative climate initiatives in addressing the pre-2020 gap.
