The event, “First INDCs and Implications for Further Actions: Paving the Way to Paris”, is part of the China Low Carbon Leadership Network 2012-2014 event series jointly organized by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and China Carbon Forum (CCF).
The event featured a range of high-level speakers, including the Netherlands Minister for the Environment, the Head of International Climate Policy at the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, and the Director of International Cooperation at NCSC, the Chinese government’s climate change policy thinktank. Following a keynote speech by the Minister, the distinguished panel discussed the progress so far on Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) for post-2020 climate action, which will be the subject of negotiation at the UNFCCC Conference of Parties (COP) in Paris later this year. The panel also featured a representative from the Embassy of Switzerland, which was the first country to submit its INDC to the UNFCCC, as well as from the World Resources Institute (WRI), a prominent climate change policy thinktank.
