Closing Session on CLIMATE

Thursday - 14:30 - 16:00

THEME

Climate

ROOM

Room 30

DESCRIPTION

The Theme Climate will be holding 12 ordinary sessions during the 8th Forum week. The Theme is also going to be discussed in Ministerial Thematic Roundtables, a number of Special Sessions, High Level Panels and other Forum process sessions. The sessions focus on water security and climate change and on linkages to the 2030 Agenda/SDGs 6, 13, and 11, The Paris Agreement on Climate Change, and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. The Thematic Closing Session will bring the highlights of the debates together and come up with a list of recommendations for action to be implemented in the short and long term, as well as potential actors to be involved, and this way contribute to the Thematic outcomes document, with the following content:

a. Key political messages

b. Linkages to international frameworks and how these messages can be taken into account

c. Current state of affairs of the theme

d. Short-term Goals (where do we need to be in 2021 and 2024?)

e. Long-term Goals (where do we need to be in 2030?)

f. How do we get there? (plan for scaling up, including good practices)

The final purpose of the Climate Closing Session is to contribute to the outcomes of the 8th Forum in support of the implementation of multiple international frameworks, and to ensure continuity towards the Forums to come.
