What To Expect From COP20 In Lima


Experts from Climate Action Network will brief media on expectations for the major UN climate change negotiations of the year, called COP20, due to get underway in Lima, Peru on 1st of December 2014.

This year climate change has rocketed back to the top of the political agenda. Now, can governments harness the momentum, from unprecedented numbers of people taking to the streets in support of scaling up climate action, to make substantive progress on an outline for national climate action commitments and the new international agreement due in Paris next December?  

Off the back of blockbuster reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and UNEP, which underscore the need to phase out fossil fuels entirely to keep climate change within an agreed threshold, can governments in Lima accelerate the ongoing transition to renewable energies and smarter use of power?
