COP28: Enhancing Multi-Level Governance and Multi-stakeholder Participation in LT-LEDS, NDCs and NAPs
Co-organized by: OECD and UNESCO Chair on Urban Resilience [Southern Denmark University (SDU)]
There is a growing awareness of the fundamental importance of cities in raising climate ambition while operationalizing the national contributions to the Paris Agreement, for mitigation and adaptation policies, strategies and actions. At the same time, it is clear that countries will require further assistance to address urban mitigation and adaptation challenges and to identify appropriate responses and related financial, technological and institutional provisions. According to the UNFCCC synthesis report on LT-LEDS (2022), almost all LT-LEDS underlined the role of subnational governments, including cities, municipalities and states, in realizing a transformation to achieve their long-term goals. What are the opportunities and challenges for enhancing multi-level governance, ensuring multi-stakeholder participation and incorporating gender and social inclusion in countries’ LT-LEDS, NDCs and NAPs. This session will discuss:
- The opportunities and challenges of national governments in raising their climate ambitions and operationalization of LT-LEDS, NDCs and NAPs through the integration of the urban perspective,
- Ways to accelerate long-term climate mitigation and adaptation action in cities through national LT-LEDS, NAPs and NDCs while enhancing multi-level governance and multi-stakeholder integration.
- The factors of ensuring that urban climate action issues and multiple stakeholders can be incorporated in countries’ LT-LEDS, NDCs and NAPs.
- Examples of vertical integration and multi-level governance in climate action including examples from NDCs, LT-LEDS and NAPs.
