ACT 2015

Consortium of the world’s top climate experts to catalyze discussion and build momentum toward reaching a global climate agreement at the forthcoming UNFCCC summit in 2015.


The Agreement on Climate Transformation 2015 (ACT 2015) consortium is a group of the world’s top climate experts from developing and developed countries that have come together to catalyze discussion and build momentum toward reaching a global climate agreement at the forthcoming UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) summit in 2015. To do so the consortium has developed three potential propositions for what the agreement could look like which it presents in a series of workshops around the world, including in developed countries, major emerging economies, least developed countries, and small island developing states. These workshops engage a wide range of stakeholders and decision makers and enables key government decision-makers, business and civil society leaders to understand the implications of various options and links to national priorities.

The project is supported by the European Commission.
