The Race to Zero Dialogues are a series of virtual events convened by the High-Level Champions for Global Climate Action and taking place between 9 and 19 November. The Dialogues will chart how entire sectors are already rapidly transitioning to a zero-carbon future, as defined in the Climate Action Pathways. The Race to Zero Dialogues will also serve as critical input to the UNFCCC Climate Dialogues from 23 November to 4 December, which are advancing work governing the rules of the Paris Agreement.

Transport Dialogue on 11 November
The Transport Dialogue will be held on 11 November. The virtual meeting is co-organised by the International Transport Forum, the SLOCAT Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport, the Mission Possible Platform, the World Economic Forum, the Global Maritime Forum, the International Civil Aviation Organization, the Climate Group, Said Business School and Oxford University, and Resilient 40.

By November 2020, the Marrakech Partnership Climate Action Pathways will be enhanced in detail to encourage discussion across all sectors of the global economy. The goal is to catalyse collaboration around the Climate Action Pathways, guided by science, and to accelerate action.

UIC is a proud official supporter of Race to Zero, the campaign that seeks to build momentum around the shift to a decarbonised economy ahead of COP26. Marking one year until we come together in Glasgow for COP26, Race to Zero is hosting a series of special dialogues. As part of its role in the Marrakesh Partnership, UIC has been working with other transport authorities to create the transport climate action pathway. Help shape the pathway and join the Transport Dialogues on 11 November.
