Promoting Climate Action and Resilience through A "Territorial Approach"

Ministry of the Environment, Japan
Seminar abstract


Recognising the climate urgency, the role of cities and regions and the importance of a place-based climate action, this event aims to discuss among national and local policymakers and experts the importance and effectiveness of a 'territorial approach to climate action and resilience', a new comprehensive policy framework to accelerate the net-zero and resilient transition. As a territorial approach presents concrete policy measures to advance local climate action with partnership of actors across levels of government, it is particularly relevant in the current policy context where multi-level and multi-stakeholder collaboration is needed in achieving the Paris Agreement, This event will also launch the OECD report “A Territorial Approach to Climate Action and Resilience” that synthesises three years of work under the OECD TACAR Programme, supported by the government of Japan.
