Through a process of widespread global engagement, ACT 2015 will develop an ambitious and effective proposal for a new international climate agreement in 2015 that catalyzes climate action and moves the world onto low-carbon, climate resilient pathways.
The Agreement on Climate Transformation 2015 (ACT 2015) consortium of climate experts from developing and developed countries will put forward an innovative framework for the forthcoming UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) agreement in 2015.
The consortium has developed three potential visions for what the agreement would look like and has analyzed those three propositions for economic feasibility and the likelihood to keep global average temperature below 2 degrees Celsius. They will present these visions in a series of convenings around the world, engaging a wide range of decision-makers and stakeholders. The consortium will also conduct research on the areas of reducing emissions, adapting to the impacts of climate change, financing the transition and building resilience, how to make country actions transparent and how to future proof the post-2020 regime. Based on this research and analysis and the feedback from the convenings, the consortium will prepare a complete draft proposal for the 2015 climate agreement. An accompanying memo will explains why certain choices have been made and why the agreement put forward would have the highest probability of success for catalyzing an effective, fair, and ambitious transition to a low-carbon and climate resilient future in developed and developing countries.
