OECD COP26 Virtual Pavilion

Helping Countries Advance Towards Net Zero - Joint OECD-France Side Event on International Programme for Action on Climate (IPAC)

Nov 2, 2021 | 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM


The joint OECD-France high-level panel discussion on IPAC at COP26 is an opportunity to share the OECD contribution to the COP26 agenda of ambition and transparency through the presentation of IPAC on a global stage. The OECD International Programme for Action on Climate (IPAC) supports country progress towards net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and a more resilient economy by 2050. Through regular monitoring, policy evaluation and feedback on results and good practices, IPAC helps countries strengthen and co-ordinate their climate action. It complements and supports the UNFCCC and the Paris Agreement monitoring frameworks. IPAC is articulated in four components: the Dashboard of climate-related indicators, the Climate Action Monitor Progress Report, an annual digest of countries’ progress towards climate objectives building on the preliminary Dashboard, country notes with targeted policy advice (to be published in 2022), and an interactive platform for dialogue and mutual learning across countries with policies in practice. Secretary-General Mathias Cormann will share the dashboard and policies in practice, and launch the first edition of the IPAC Climate Action Monitor Progress Report, which features examples of climate mitigation and adaptation good practices and results. Several distinguished Ministers will then contribute to the panel discussion on the IPAC dashboard and Climate Monitor.
