Since COP 21 United Nations Climate Change Conference convened in Paris, the international community has advocated for the mobilisation of stronger, more ambitious, and urgent climate action to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement. At COP 25 held in Madrid, Parties to the UNFCCC acknowledged through decision 1/CP.25 that the collaboration between Parties and non-Party stakeholders is more critical than ever.
It was then agreed that the work of the Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action (MPGCA) and the role of the High-Level Champions must continue to build alliances and enable collaboration between governments, cities, regions, businesses, and civil society to scale up climate action to collectively strive for the 1.5 °C temperature goal and a climate-neutral and resilient world.
In 2020, High-Level Champions Gonzalo Muñoz and Nigel Topping launched a consultation for Parties and observer organisations to provide feedback on how to improve the Marrakech Partnership for enhancing climate ambition.
Regions4 has supported the MPGCA since its inception and welcomes its continuation until 2025. As one of the LGMA core members, our organisation has provided 7 recommendations to boost ambition, increase subnational advocacy and build innovative partnerships for climate action through the MPGCA as follows:
