The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) has been advocating for organised civil society and citizens at global, national and subnational levels to be fully involved in the development, review and, above all, implementation of the Paris Agreement. With the general framework agreed at the COP21 in Paris, it is now also the role of non-state actors, including civil society, to work together to implement it. Multi-level and multi-stakeholder climate governance is the strong focus of our work in 2017 and beyond. We are concentrating our efforts on the identification of the mechanisms and measures for organised civil society to be truly involved and for climate action to deliver massively while proposing elements of a new climate governance framework, emphasising the role of citizens and grassroots organisations.
