ParisProgress began as the Pathway to Paris, which launched on September 23, 2014, after the U.N. Secretary-General’s Climate Summit, in New York. The Pathway to Paris created a mechanism for stakeholder engagement in policy guidance to the 2015 U.N. Climate Conference (COP21) in Paris.
In a major 2-day stakeholder convening in Minneapolis, in October 2015, a governance strategy was adopted to convert the Pathway to Paris into the Citizens’ Climate Engagement Network. The CCEN, operating through engage4climate.org, built a model for local stakeholder meetings based on structured policy workstreams.
ParisProgress is a CCEN project to track and support implementation of the Paris Agreement, through:
- an index of action platforms,
- the PARIS Principles for effective, efficient, equitable carbon pricing, and
- news and blogs from a coalition of collaborators.
We invite you to join the ParisProgress network, to tell your story about Paris Agreement implementation, and to use the Engage4Climate Toolkit to share your organization or community’s vision for a climate-smart sustainable future.
