The political legacy of 2021: Reflections from Past COP Presidents and Climate Leaders
This event aims at promoting a dialogue between former COP Presidents, UK Government representatives and Climate Leaders on possible elements for the legacy of the 2021 momentum to multilateralism, with a focus on COP 26. On the one hand, the first version of the UNFCCC NDC synthesis report has unequivocally demonstrated that current ambition is far from a 1.5C future, making it most relevant to maintain strong political momentum during 2021, culminating at COP 26. On the other hand, such momentum must transcend 2021 to lay the foundations for effective implementation, including actively embracing the Non-State Actors visible leadership and aligning the recovery and climate agendas.
In this sense, COP 26 must not only be a checkpoint for the first ratchet cycle of the Paris Agreement, but should also lay ahead a clear pathway for the next 5 years of the climate regime, since they will constitute the make-or-break of effective implementation. The 2021 climate political legacy from COP26 could create the enabling conditions for the Paris Agreement ambition mechanism to deliver stronger results.

Speakers include:

Laurent Fabius, COP21 President and President of the Constitutional Council of France.
Carolina Schmidt, COP25 President and Chilean Minister of Environment.
Manuel Pulgar-Vidal, COP20 President and WWF Global Lead Climate & Energy.
Dr Jonathan Pershing, Senior Advisor to US Presidential Envoy on Climate.
Helen Mountford, Vice President, Climate & Economics, WRI.
Moderator: Vanessa Pérez-Cirera, WWF Deputy Global Lead Climate & Energy.
