COP26 EVENT | 50% Reductions by 2030 for 1.5°C: No Negotiating with the World’s Ice

25 October 2021

KEYWORDS
Arctic Climate Change Pan-Arctic Outside the Arctic

Date and time: 3 November 2021 from 9:30-10:30 GMT.

This event, 50% Reductions by 2030 for 1.5°C: No Negotiating with the World’s Ice, is co-hosted by WWF's Arctic Programme.

Global impacts not just in, but from the cryosphere – sea-level rise, water resource loss from disappearing glaciers and snowpack, permafrost carbon emissions – mean that an overshoot of the 1.5°C Paris goal will lead to unacceptable loss and damage.

But some countries have legislated ways to meet that goal. Come hear how these countries have done this, and the motivation for ambition and urgency to limit warming to within 1.5°C.

Moderator: Pam Pearson, Director, International Cryosphere Climate Initiative (ICCI)

  • Martin Sommerkorn, IPCC SROCC Coordinating Lead Author; Head of Conservation, WWF Arctic Programme
  • Joeri Rogelj, Imperial College London, IPCC AR6 WG1 Lead Author, SR1.5 Coordinating Lead Author, AR5 Coordinating Lead Author
