Organized by the European Commission as part of the EU’s contribution to the Talanoa Dialogue, an international process to take stock of the collective and individual efforts towards the goals of the Paris Agreement on climate change, the ‘EU for Talanoa’ conference (#EU4Talanoa) will bring together representatives from EU institutions, cities and regions, civil society, the private sector, trade unions and other relevant stakeholders from EU member States and countries outside the EU.
The conference will seek to: stimulate discussions related to the implementation of the Paris Agreement and the preparation of the next set of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs); demonstrate how the EU is delivering on its climate goals and accelerating the low-emission transition, building on the EU’s technical submission to the Talanoa Dialogue; and support the involvement of all public and private actors in the fight against climate change.
