​​The Subsidiary Body on Implementation (SBI) and the Subsidiary Body on Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) will meet to discuss implementation and technical issues around climate change. During the meeting, the Ad hoc working group on the Durban Platform (ADP) will continue negotiations to create a new global climate agreement that is expected to be adopted at the 2015 Conference of Parties (COP) in Paris and which will go into effect in 2020.

With just months before the COP, parties in Bonn need to make the agreement’s text more streamlined and manageable for negotiators. Further ADP sessions will take place in August and October before the final COP in December. Progress will also be needed outside of the UNFCCC by the nations, corporations, communities and individuals whose actions hold the key to climate solutions. Conservation International looks forward to working on both fronts and at all levels (global, national, local) with those pursuing a stable global climate.

Our role

Seeking to define elements of a comprehensive 2015 agreement that is equitable and robust, CI will contribute our science, field experience and policy expertise to dialogues at Subsidiary Bodies 42.

CI aims to ensure that nature's voice is heard in the new agreement, ensuring that it is valued in global discussions on climate change. Nature itself is our most valuable asset in confronting climate change and represents a key solution for both mitigation and adaptation. Natural ecosystems (oceans, forests) absorb more than 50% of global emissions, yet they are being destroyed or damaged at a high rate. The value of these systems should be reinforced in the new agreement through provisions for financial mechanisms to support activities in the land-use sector and landscape-level approaches for both mitigation and adaptation.

CI has prepared a position paper to reflect key recommendations to inform the ADP negotiations; the paper can be accessed below.

On Sunday, June 7, CI is hosting an Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) workshop. The morning will focus on capacity building and will provide an overview of the opportunities that EbA solutions present to the adaptation planning process. The afternoon session will focus on knowledge exchange, providing a platform for EbA practitioners to share lessons learned and exchange best practices from EbA project implementation experiences. More detailed information can be accessed in the documents below.
