Role of methane, black carbon and other short-lived climate pollutants in meeting temperature goals
Reducing short-lived climate forcings (SLCFs) offers low-cost mitigation with substantial co-benefits, but the impact on the risk of dangerous climate change depends on simultaneous reductions in CO2. We discuss the implications for any attempt to mitigate CO2 and SLCFs in a common policy framework.

Will National Legislation Pave The Way for A Global Deal?
National legislation opens the political space for international agreements. It is the linchpin between action on the ground and international ambition. At the national level, the recent cases of Mexico, Korea and Australia suggest that when countries enact clean energy legislation, investment follows. Has the momentum gained in 2010 and 2011 continued in 2012?

Speakers: Ministers and senior legislators will describe the latest legislative developments ahead of the launch of GLOBE's 3rd Annual Climate Legislation Study in January 2013 and the launch of the GLOBE Climate Legislation Initiative which will analyse and support the development of climate-related legislation in 33 countries.
