The INDC Forum brings together policy makers, high level government officials, expert organisations and lead voices from the academia, private sector and civil society. 150 to 200 persons will participate in total, including from 40-45 governments, half of which represented at Minister or equivalent level.
The INDC Forum will aim to:
• Recognise and celebrate that the INDCs received will represent an unprecedented scale and scope at collective efforts to regulate greenhouse gases;
• Acknowledge the likely aggregate effect of the INDCs received on future global average temperatures; and,
• Promote a global policy response that rises to the challenge, for example by considering ways to regularly review and strengthen government actions and to leverage the potential offered by the "action agenda".
The INDC Forum consists of a science/policy dialogue during 12 October, a high-level dinner in the evening and a high-level roundtable policy discussion in the morning of 13 October. Note: 13 October, restricted to representatives from governments and international organisations in order to create a safe space to promote open and frank exchanges.
