COP26 Side Event

International Forum on City-Wide Climate Crisis Response and Technology Sharing

5 November 2021 18:00 -19:00 (JST) /9:00-10:00 (Local time)

Climate change has risen to the top of the international policy agenda and the phenomenon of global climate change has heightened the importance of science and technological innovation to achieve sustainable development goals. It will be critical to build the capacity to produce, select, adapt, and disseminate knowledge for sustainable development and further the Net Zero. 

The forum culminates in an opportunity to share technologies, policies, and plans in the climate environment sector at local government-level. The outcomes of this forum will be shared and distributed not only with COP participants but also to the international cooperation network (Urban Environmental Accords(UEA), a collective of 156 cities in 51 countries wishing to contribute to global Net Zero).
