UN climate change conference (COP23)

IIED at the 2017 UNFCCC climate change summit in Bonn (COP23)

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) binds over 190 Parties. Its nearly universal membership meets annually to work together to tackle climate change. The 2017 UN climate change conference will take place from 6 to 17 November in Bonn, Germany. The conference will be convened under the Presidency of Fiji.

IIED and partners will be working to ensure the Paris Agreement is put into action, with fair and transparent rules for all, and that the battle against climate change focuses on the poorest contries, which are most at risk. With less than ten per cent of climate funds prioritised for local-level activitie, we want fair and clear rules so more reaches the people who need it most. We will be supporting negotiators from the Least Developed Countries, organising side events and workshops, and analysing progress at the talks.
