Buildings and Climate Global Forum, 7-8 March in Paris

The Buildings and Climate Global Forum, co-organised by France and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), with the support of the Global Alliance for Buildings and Construction (GlobalABC), will take place on 7-8 March 2024 in Paris. The Forum aims to gather for the first time ministers and high-level representatives of key organisations, to initiate a new impetus in international collaboration for building decarbonisation and resilience after the Conference of the Parties (COP) 28.

During two days, this Forum will provide a unique opportunity to engage with ministers in charge of decarbonisation and resilience of the buildings, real estate, and construction sectors from all world regions. High-level representatives and experts of key stakeholder organisations will be invited, across the entire buildings sector value chain, including local authorities, NGOs, and businesses.

Over 800 participants are expected. Many sessions on key topics, CEO and ministerial roundtables, plenary meetings, solution exhibitions, and pitches will provide the opportunity to exchange, network and work together.

Governments will be invited to endorse a common declaration outlining common principles and cooperation framework for global efforts to achieve decarbonisation and climate change resilience in the buildings sector. All stakeholders of the buildings sector will be invited to disclose specific engagements to support the Forum’s ambition.

The Forum follows the successful launch of the Buildings Breakthrough, supported by 28 governments, the European Commission, and 19 international initiatives at COP28 in Dubai on 6 December 2023.
