Climate and energy transition

COP 21 - 09.10.2015

Our policy position about the international negotiations on climate is online
As the focus of our campaign is to combat catastrophic climate change, CEMR and its member associations urge the EU to develop a robust position ahead of COP. We ask the following from the EU institutions and national governments:
  • a EU structured dialogue to integrate the subnational dimension into the UNFCC process
  • the Commission to bring local and regional governments to the COP discussion table
  • reinforce capacity of the networks to assist the EU Institutions
  • the Commission to mainstream climate action in all EU policies and the National Governments to mainstream climate into all policies and national strategies
  • local green public procurement innovates and contributes to reducing CO2
  • EU must ensure a place for climate and COP in international Sustainable Development and UN Habitat III processes
  • the use of EU, national and subnational governments’ financial resources, political frameworks, and innovation and research tools to combat climate change
  • better EU regulation to help devise and implement efficient and integrated local action
  • facilitate the exchange of good practice at sub-national level, in Europe and globally 

You can read our position in English and in French.
