The IEA and COP
To tackle climate change, the IEA promotes energy policies and actions, domestic and international, for all countries. This involves climate-energy policy research for countries to share best practice, risk and resilience analysis to help the energy sector prepare for climate change impacts, and promoting international collective action on climate change. Supporting the UNFCCC is central to this third aim, and the IEA attends COP to provide expert advice and support on all facets of energy policy.
- Relaying IEA Ministerial messages, contributing directly to the UNFCCC negotiation process by participating in the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action (ADP) and Subsidiary Body processes, organising side events, and forwarding IEA analyses as submissions.
- Technical collaboration with the UNFCCC Secretariat, linking IEA roadmaps and the low-carbon technology platform to the UNFCCC Technology Executive Committee and reviewing greenhouse gas inventories.
- Organising the CCXG Global Forum and CCXG Seminar, which continue policy debate and development outside COP.
- Co-operating in other regional and/or sector-specific international arenas, such as the Clean Energy Ministerial or Major Economies Forum on Energy and Climate Change.
As the world’s leading provider of SOLUTIONS, ANALYSIS, and DATA for the global energy transition, the IEA stands ready to contribute to COP22, with a focus on helping to scale up and speed up the clean energy transition, accelerating sustainable energy access in Africa, and strengthening energy sector resilience to climate impacts.
More information about the IEA at COP22 is available on our COP22 page.
