Stepping up Climate Action at the Asia Pacific Climate Week!

Plans are well in place and excitement is building in advance of Asia Pacific Climate Week (APCW 2018) set for 10–13 July 2018 in Singapore. The event – which lands two months ahead of both the Global Climate Action Summit in California and New York Climate Week – will be instrumental in demonstrating that there is genuine international support for stepping-up climate action by mobilizing actors across the Asia-Pacific region.

Asia-Pacific Climate Week Agenda

On the first day – 10 July – the High-Level Climate Champions are convening stakeholders to discuss UN Climate Change and global climate action activities and milestones for 2018 and beyond. This meeting represents a special session to better understand how to engage regional actors in the inter-governmental process.

See agenda of the meeting.

In particular, the Marrakech Partnership is hosting four events at APCW 2018:

  • High-level event: Transport in Cities – Parties and Non-Party Stakeholders Working Together to Deliver Low Carbon Urban Mobility (Lead: SLOCAT. Support: CCAC, CDP, UITP, UNEP);
  • Enabling Waste-to-energy, Reuse and Prevention Solutions to Achieve Circular Economy and Boost Climate Action (Lead: UNIDO. Support: BASWAC, FAO, ICC);
  • Data to Drive Climate Action and Energy Transitions in Cities (Lead: CDP. Support: IEA, ICC); and
