Lima-Paris Action Agenda (LPAA)


The Lima-Paris Action Agenda (LPAA) launched in Peru during COP20 aims to develop the actions and commitments of non-State actors – cities, regions, companies, investors, civil society organizations – which will contribute to reducing global greenhouse gas emissions and to adaptation, before 2020 and in the long term. The LPAA sequence organized from 1st to 8th December in Le Bourget met with great success. The Lima-Paris Action Agenda today represents a total of over sixty coalitions, gathering some 10,000 actors from 180 countries, as well as 11,000 individual commitments registered on the NAZCA electronic platform by over 2,000 local governments and over 2,000 companies. France has been actively involved in a number of initiatives due to their strategic nature. They will be subject to priority attention in 2016 (see table). The inclusive and partnership-based nature of the steering of the LPAA in 2015 played a large part in the recognition obtained in the Paris decision. It will need to be continued in 2016 in a new context: two champions appointed by the Presidencies, expectations affirmed in terms of civil society participation in governance. In 2016, it will be necessary to define both the governance and involvement of non-State actors.
