Negotiators will soon gather in Madrid at COP25 (December 2 to December 13, 2019) to iron out rules for international carbon markets and prepare for the consequential year of 2020, when countries should put forward more ambitious climate commitments under the Paris Agreement. While nearly 70 countries intend to step up their climate commitments, these nations account for only 8% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Join a press call with WRI experts on November 21 at 10:00 a.m. EST / 16:00 CEST on what to expect at COP25, both within and outside the negotiating halls. Andrew Steer, WRI President & CEO, will be joined by international climate policy experts Yamide Dagnet and David Waskow, who will discuss the most consequential and contentious negotiation topics like Article 6; how COP25 relates to stepping up climate efforts in the year ahead; and how countries, businesses, cities and others are responding to both the climate crisis and civil unrest stemming from social inequity.
