On February, 26th, 2015, our Pathway to Paris Online Working Session included a worksheet hosted through Google Forms. The objective was to deepen a process of inclusive policy direction, for framing a coordinated list of objectives and priorities for COP21.
The feedback from participants showed a great support to previously discussed top policy priorities:
- Greenhouse Gases Emissions Reduction,
- Carbon Pricing,
- Persistent Direct Citizen Engagement,
- Climate Finance,
- Intergenerational equity & Human Rights,
- Integrity & Preservation of Ecosystems.
