High-level Engagement on Innovation – Marrakech Partnership

To help maintain the political momentum and drive the realisation of the Paris Agreement, non-State actors, such as business, are stepping up to the plate. Through open dialogue and concerted action, the public and private sectors can accomplish the collective ambitions of the climate accord.

This session will begin with two opening keynotes that will set the scene for the importance of business innovation in implementing the Paris Agreement. This will be followed by a panel discussion on the enabling policy frameworks for innovative partnerships and business solutions.

The second panel will discuss the types of innovation needed and the role that innovation has on strengthening national pledges. This session will also show how, more generally, business can best engage with government on the local, national and international level to encourage implementation of the Paris Agreement.

The event will close by shining a spotlight on COP24.
