The Policy & Practice of Climate Change & Water

Yearbook of Global Climate Action 2017

The Yearbook of Global Climate Action was launched today at a high level GCA event during COP23. The Marrakech Partnership’s 2017 Yearbook of Climate Action, drawing from thematic and regional meetings, summarizes the achievements in climate action over the last year.

The Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action was launched in COP22 in Marrakech to provide a strong roadmap for the UNFCCC process to catalyze and support climate action by Parties and non-Party stakeholders in the period from 2017 to 2020. The partnerships and initiatives of non-Party stakeholders, through the Marrakech Partnership, and in cooperation with national governments, aim to take immediate action on climate, consistent with the full implementation of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).

This Yearbook demonstrates that non-Party stakeholders are steadily progressing with climate action.

The First Yearbook of the Marrakesh Partnership informs Parties about what has been achieved during the year, and spotlights how pre-2020 ambition can be accelerated. It has been developed in consultation and co-operation with coalitions and initiatives who are at the forefront of action, innovation and solutions.

You can view or download the Yearbook here.

A summary for policymakers is also available.

AGWA is mentioned in the yearbook in the Acknowledgements as well as the Water section that begins on page 37. SIWI and the #ClimateIsWater Initiative are also referenced as vital contributors to the GCA.
