COP24 – Yearbook Of Global Climate Action 2018 Event

The Yearbook of Global Climate Action 2018 provides some good examples of climate action initatives all over the world.

To share best practices as well as to foster dialogue amongst a wide range of stakeholders is one of the main challenge within the Katowice Climate Change Conference and Conference of the Parties envisaged by the Paris Agreement (COP24).

Amongst the precious experiences within the Yearbook of Global Climate Action 2018, there is the case of District Energy in Cities Initiative. First pilot project is now operational in Banja Luka (Bosnia and Herzegovina). A biomass boiler plant is going to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 90%, therefore helping in the process of cilmate change mitigation and adaptation, with significant financial savings and health benefits to the local population

On the 6th of December, the Katowice Conference will host an event to present the progress by governments, the private sector and the civil society towards  the goals of the Paris Agreement.
