Conservation International will be participating in the UNFCCC climate negotiations (SBSTA/SBI 36, LCA 15, KP 17 and ADP 1) in Bonn, Germany this May. Our engagement will include providing technical support to Parties, meeting with intergovernmental bodies and non-governmental partners, and participating in side events.
In Bonn, UNFCCC negotiators from nearly 200 countries will be working to develop the Durban Platform of Action as they prepare for the 18th Conference of the Parties in Doha, Qatar at the end of this year. Their aim: develop a plan for the new 2015 climate agreement and increase the ambition of climate actions. Both political and technical negotiations will take place in Bonn as parties try to line up the larger issues while also deciding on the details that will enable implementation in areas such as reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries and adaptation.
