¿Qué pretende el Congreso?
  1. Poner de relieve que el Cambio Climático tiene consecuencias económicas y sociales, además de las ambientales.
  2. Mostrar el estado de desarrollo del conocimiento sobre Cambio Climático.
  3. Crear un espacio de debate de la implementación práctica de las políticas de cambio climático, analizando las herramientas normativas y tecnológicas disponibles.
  4. Crear un clima de encuentro en el ámbito mediterráneo y latinoamericano.
  5. Mostrar que es necesaria una actuación multinivel de la administración y el sector privado, y en este contexto, destacar el papel de las Administraciones subnacionales.
  6. Mostrar a la ciudadanía que la responsabilidad sobre el cambio climático es de todos, y que es esencial actuar ya para avanzar hacia la sostenibilidad, pensando globalmente y actuando localmente.
Why a Congress on Climate Change?

Afrontar el cambio climático es el reto del siglo veintiuno. Hay una sólida base científica que demuestra su existencia y que se debe a la actividad humana. Sobre esta base se construyen los modelos de predicción de los impactos futuros y se diseñan las medidas a adoptar.

El margen calculado para el calentamiento global asumible es de dos grados centígrados con respecto a la era preindustrial, y ya hemos consumido casi la mitad de ese margen.

Antecedentes

Tras la entrada en vigor del Acuerdo de París el pasado 4 de noviembre de 2016, al que se llegó en la COP 21, en la reciente Cumbre del Clima celebrada en Marrakech se han definido las bases para poner en marcha este acuerdo universal sobre cambio climático a través de la Proclamación de la Acción de Marrakech y se ha establecido la puesta en marcha de dicho Acuerdo a partir del año 2020, una vez redactadas las reglas que lo regirán. Por ello, es importante no perder el impulso en este momento, para lo cual los gobiernos deben avanzar en sus compromisos al tiempo que los mercados maduran hacia la canalización de la inversión en economía limpia, sostenible y competitiva.

El Congreso constituye una aportación a esta empresa que nos incumbe a todos.
