Session 2: How to enable an accelerated transition to #netzero
This session will explore how an accelerated #netzero ambition can be led by countries wanting to go further, faster. Which countries are doing the right thing, where can we identify innovation that will enable the hard-to-reach sectors to be decarbonised, and what does success look like?
In conversation with James Cameron, Dr Fatih Birol, Executive Director, International Energy Agency will explore their ground-breaking ‘The World’s Roadmap to NetZero by 2050’ report. This roadmap will be released the day before the Dublin Climate Dialogues on 18 May.
It will set out in detail what is needed from governments, companies, investors and citizens to fully decarbonise the energy sector and put emissions on a path in line with a temperature rise of 1.5 degrees Celsius.
Following the conversation, the Ministers will set-out how their countries have developed ambitious plans for a transition to a sustainable economy based on renewable energy, and how they will work with others to accelerate the COP process towards significantly lowered global emissions.
