The implementation of the outcome of the Paris summit on climate change (COP21) is an important challenge and work priority for EU Institutions.

This Coalition aims to facilitate dialogue and multi-stakeholder partnerships as means of accelerated, more efficient and inclusive implementation of the Paris Agreement.
A concept of Climate Justice frames global climate change as a political and ethical issue, not strictly an environmental one. It recognises that the poorest, most vulnerable people regularly suffer the greatest impacts of climate change even though they produce the least emissions that drive it. This Side Event will present practical options to address climate justice in a socially equitable manner. It will highlight EU success stories and opportunities for collaboration and the sharing of good practices with other UNFCCC parties.
