Preparing for COP24 United Nations Climate in Katowice, Poland
Fast Ratcheting down of Personal and Global Carbon Budgets
To achieve the ‘Ambition of 1.5 degrees’ of warming that we proposed in the Paris Agreement Targets, we need to reconsider available methodologies for moving faster towards stabilising the global climate. We re-examine and re -calculate the scientific and technological options.Therefore our event introduces the use of Global and Personal Carbon Budgets, and new pathway solutions suggested by the Green Economics Institute for implementation by COP23 & COP24.
We explore the Polish Context in detail ready for COP24, with the impact of climate on selected sectors in Poland including Agriculture, water, environment and wetlands.
The event will provide a space to debate and consider the options. It will explain the latest science, economics and life style advice for United Nations delegations, Focal Points, United Nations’ Research Organisations (RINGOs) and the Chair and his teams and for the general public. Further explanations and information about this can be found on our website www.geiclimate.org. At this event,. we explore Lifestyle Changes, Market Options, Regulations and Technological & Scientific Options.
