Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action
Under the leadership of the High-Level Climate Champions, the Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action (MPGCA) supports the implementation of the Paris Agreement by enabling collaboration between governments and the cities, regions, businesses and investors that must act on climate change.
Serving as Co-Focal Point of the Transport Thematic Group jointly with the International Transport Forum, SLOCAT continued to establish the transport community as an essential and reliable partner in the MPGCA. SLOCAT’s mandate was renewed by appointment by transport sector peers in 2020.

Transport Climate Action Pathways 2020
Initially launched in 2019, the thematic Climate Action Pathways outline the longer-term vision for a 1.5-degree climate-resilient world from the perspective of non-Party stakeholders and set out actions needed to achieve that future. The Climate Action Pathways 2020 were released on 11 December 2020, on the occasion of the 5-year anniversary of the Paris Agreement.
SLOCAT co-led the elaboration of the Transport Climate Action Pathway, jointly with ITF, and with direct support from UITP; as well as with contributions from a wide range of transport community stakeholders.
