Why Attend?

The Low-Emissions Solutions Conference is a direct follow-up to key commitments in the Paris agreement. In the agreement, every country is responsible for producing a Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) for the period to 2030 as well as a Low-Emission Development Strategy (LEDS) to 2050 (Article 4, paragraph 19). The Solutions Conference will assist nations in the technical preparations of their NDCs and LEDSs by bringing together technical experts, world-leading scientists and engineers, and sectors from business, academia, and civil society. The Solutions Conference will be aimed at problem solving, brainstorming, and global co-creation, without the pressures of inter-governmental negotiations or formal agreements. The goal will be to share knowledge, exchange information, identify bottlenecks, discuss best practices, and prioritize future research.

The LESC has taken place annually since 2016 and will continue into the future to help strengthen the technical capacity of Paris Agreement implementers worldwide.
