The Asia Pacific Climate Week APCW2018, organized by the Nairobi Framework Partnership with support from the Singapore Government, will be a critical stepping-stone on the journey towards completing the operational guidance for the Paris Climate Change Agreement at the international climate negotiations at COP24 in Katowice, Poland.
UN Climate Change Executive Secretary, Patricia Espinosa, will participate in the event, alongside the High-Level Climate Champion, Mr. Tomasz Chruszczow, Special Envoy for Climate Change from Poland, as well as city and business leaders.
The theme of APCW2018 is “Climate Action for Sustainable Development: Driving Change in Asia Pacific”. The high-level segment on Wednesday, 11 July, will bring together the business community, while other highlights at the Climate Week will include the Asia Pacific Carbon Forum and a technical session on the cross-linkages between markets and the Sustainable Development Goals. More details are available here.
APCW2018 follows-on from the success of Africa Climate Week (ACW2018) hosted in Nairobi earlier this year. On 20-25 August, the Latin America and Caribbean Climate Week will take place in Montevideo, Uruguay.
The goal of these Climate Weeks is to support the implementation of countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions under the Paris Agreement and climate action to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals. In so doing, they will bring together diverse international stakeholders in the public and private sectors around the common goal of enhancing climate action.
