Strategic Partnerships for the Implementation of the Paris Agreement (SPIPA)

Climate change is a global threat that requires a decisive and confident response from all communities, particularly from major economies that represent roughly 80 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions. The 2015 Paris Agreement complemented by the 2018 Katowice climate package, provides the essential framework governing global action to deal with climate change and steering the worldwide transition towards climate-neutrality and climate-resilience. In this context, policy practitioners are keen to use various platforms to learn from one another and accelerate the dissemination of good practices. To improve a geopolitical landscape that has become more turbulent, the EU set out in 2017 to redouble its climate diplomacy efforts and policy collaborations with major emitters outside Europe in order to promote the implementation of the Paris Agreement. This resulted in the establishment of the SPIPA programme in order to mobilise European know-how to support peer-to-peer learning. The programme builds upon and complements climate policy dialogues and cooperation with major EU economies.
