Global Climate Action  

At the twenty-first session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 21) in Paris, it was agreed that mobilizing stronger and more ambitious climate action by all Parties and non-Party stakeholders is urgently required if the goals of the Paris Agreement are to be achieved.

In decision 1/CP.21, the commitments from all actors are recognized, including those launched through the Lima–Paris Action Agenda, as well as the urgent need to scale up the global response to climate change and support greater ambition from governments.

At COP 22 in Marrakech, a High-Level Event on Accelerating Climate Action was held to highlight outcomes from the Action Events throughout the conference and culminated with the launching of the Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action; a new framework to catalyse and support climate action.

Renewable energy

Global Geothermal Alliance (GGA)

Achieve five-fold growth in the global installed capacity for geothermal power generation and two-fold growth for geothermal heating by 2030

List of participants will be added in due course

Lead Organisations

International Renewable Energy Agency – IRENA

Objectives

Long term objective:
Contribute to the realisation of geothermal energy potential to achieve a five-fold growth in the global installed capacity for geothermal power generation and two-fold growth for geothermal heating by 2030

Short term objective:
Develop and operationalize the GGA as a global platform for enhanced dialogue and knowledge-sharing within the GGA constituency as well as for coordinated action to address the technical, regulatory, policy and financial challenges towards wider penetration of geothermal energy in the global energy mix.

Roadmap and work plan

The GGA Joint Communique released by the GGA in December 2015 sets forth key establishment and operational principles of the Alliance.
The GGA Action Plan, developed through an intensive consultative process within the GGA constituency, adopted by the GGA members in May 2016 identifies the key areas of GGA action and specifies detailed operational processes and procedures.

Progress

Since the launch of the initiative, efforts have focussed on the operationalization of the Alliance. To this end, through an intensive consultative process within the GGA constituency in the past few months, a concise plan of action for the Alliance (GGA Action Plan) has been finalized and endorsed by the GGA Members in May 2016.

In order to identify specific activities under this Action Plan, the Alliance launched in June 2016 the first Call for Proposals of activities for the consideration of its constituency to provide implementation support. 20 applications have been received from the GGA member governments and partner institutions that seek implementation support in the form of technical assistance, policy advise, capacity building, access to financing or international outreach for partnership. The applications are currently being reviewed by the GGA constituency.
