CEM EVI and Global Drive to Zero Campaign
Energizing the CEM’s Work Programme, A Focus on Implementation
New Delhi, India, 7 April 2022, 14:45 – 15:45 IST


In light of the COP26 outcomes and governments’ net-zero emission pledges, the purpose of the event will be two-fold: 1) to boost EVI and Drive to Zero’s (D2Z) work programmes to ensure that the most impactful and value-added activities are prioritised; and 2) to agree on a detailed pathway of actions leading to CEM13 in Pittsburgh on 22-23 September.


Per-Anders Widell, Programme manager, EVI Coordination team within the IEA
