1 day ago
Country delegates will convene in Bonn, Germany next week for the next round of UN climate negotiations (April 30-May 10). During this session, negotiators need to make considerable progress on designing a robust set of rules to underpin the Paris Agreement (sometimes referred to as the “Paris Rulebook”) so they can be finalized and adopted this December. In addition, the Talanoa Dialogue will play a prominent role in Bonn, where negotiators and other stakeholders will engage in in-depth discussions which shall set the stage for countries to signal at the COP24 summit that they will enhance their national climate plans (NDCs) by 2020.

In addition, speakers zeroed in on what is happening on climate finance and how these negotiations fit into the broader political context, from the role of the United States to the forthcoming Global Climate Action Summit in California, and beyond.
