COP25 comes close on the heels of the UN Climate Summit in New York, in September. Several countries (68 countries accounting for 8% of global GHG emissions) signalled that they will be strengthening commitments at Madrid.
So what can you expect from COP25? For starters, expect intense discussions on enabling 1.5/2 degree pathways. This COP event serves as the second CMA meeting of parties to take decisions on the nuts, bolts and gears of the Paris Agreement. These discussions will likely focus on strengthening implementation procedures, technology, and financing, to enable implementation of the Paris Agreement, while delving deeper into the mechanics of this effort.
