COP26 Climate Dialogue with ASEAN

24 – 25 September 2020 |Webinar


On 24 – 25 September 2020, the UK COP26 Presidency, in collaboration with the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), will host a virtual COP26 Climate Dialogue with ASEAN on Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and Long-Term Strategies (LTS).

The COP26 Climate Dialogue with ASEAN offers a forum for senior government officials from all ASEAN Member States to share their experiences in meeting and enhancing the climate pledges through NDC enhancement and implementation. The dialogue will also focus on inputs from experts and practitioners in developing the long-term climate strategies (LTS) and exchanging lessons learned with other ASEAN Member States. The idea is to promote cross-regional discussion on driving and building momentum on climate action in the lead up to COP26, through enhanced NDCs and developing LTS, and exploring in particular the vital role these play in ASEAN countries’ economic recoveries from COVID19.

Sessions:

  • Session 1 (24 September, 3-6pm GMT+8): Developing and Enhancing NDCs in ASEAN countries to meet the Paris Agreement
  • Session 2 (25 September, 3-6pm GMT+8): Setting long term low emissions development strategies in support to the Paris Agreement goals

The event will feature a strong set of organisations that are working on NDCs and LTS across the ASEAN region, including IRENA, NDC Partnership, ADB, and 2050 Pathway Platform.

This Dialogue is a ‘by invitation only’ event for senior officials in the 10 ASEAN Member States who are in charge of NDCs, LTS, and climate change policy directions. A detailed agenda and registration details will be circulated directly to invitees.
