The earth’s average yearly surface temperature is currently one degree above pre-industrialization levels. According to the IPCC, an increase above 1.5 degrees would have catastrophic climatic effects of an uncontrollable extent. Political action is needed more urgently the closer we get to this threshold.
The 24th Conference of the Parties (COP24) under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), being held from December 3-14, 2018, seeks to provide a clear pathway for governments to establish and preserve sustainable, resilient development in line with the Paris Climate Change Agreement. Within this framework, GIZ offers a series of transport-related events, excursions and activities to connect forward-thinking professionals and empower ambitious ideas with informed perspectives and focused action.
Take a look at the events with direct participation of GIZ transport colleagues:
