Post-COP24 Forum: Malaysia’s Perspective on the Katowice UN Climate Change Conference
The United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP24, in Katowice was deemed as a turning point for the implementation of the Paris Agreement.
The Paris Agreement Rulebook, agreed on at COP24, acts as an operating manual to guide countries (or “Parties” in UNFCCC speak) to meet the ultimate goal of limiting global temperature rise to well below 2°C.
The release of the Special Report on 1.5 degrees by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in October 2018 raised concerns over the current level of ambition that Parties have committed to in the face of climate change. Calls for higher ambition at COP24 echoed the sentiments that came out of COP23. But did we get it?
The question still remains; did Parties do enough to raise ambitions? Is multilateralism still alive? Can the international community work together to avoid the worst impacts of the inevitable climate crisis?
Most importantly, where does Malaysia lie in all of this?
Join us at our Post-COP24 Forum to find out! Our distinguished panelists, consisting of Malaysians from the government, civil society, and youth organizations who attended COP24, will discuss the outcomes and how Malaysia fits into the global picture. We will have a Q&A session after the panel session, but please feel free to send us questions beforehand!
Kindly RSVP by 24th January 2019. Registration is FREE and space is LIMITED.
