Climate Alliance dives into climate process at first EU Dialogue for Climate Action
On 23 April, Climate Alliance President Tine Heyse and Working Group on Financing Chair Ronald van Meygaarden will provide input to the climate process alongside high level representatives of key European and international institutions. “We are eager to facilitate the Talanoa Dialogues on the road towards the next Climate Summit in Katowice, pushing for more ambition and underlining the importance of the local level in reaching our climate goals,” affirms Andy Deacon, Climate Alliance Policy Coordinator, who will also be moderating a session at the Brussels event. The Talanoa Dialogues are the official channel for exchange between so-called non-party stakeholders such as civil society organisations and municipalities, and those that are party to climate negotiations. The European Dialogue on Non-State Climate Action is being coordinated in part by the Committee of the Regions as one step in the Talanoa process. Last year Climate Alliance closed a formal agreement with this EU assembly of regional and local representatives with the aim of intensifying cooperation on climate issues.
