FEEM at COP23 Bonn

FEEM at COP23 Bonn


From 6 to 17 November, 2017 nations of the world will meet at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP23) in Bonn, Germany, to advance the aims of the Paris Agreement and achieve progress on its implementation guidelines. The conference is hosted by the Secretariat of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), and presided over by Fiji.

Cooperation makes COP23 possible. It also raises awareness of the vulnerability of islands and all nations. And it opens the door to even more collaboration and support – for resilient communities and for the transition to growth powered by clean energy”, UNFCCC Executive Secretary Patricia Espinosa said about the Conference.

FEEM has been a significant actor in the climate change debate since its origin. Through its intense research activity on a broad array of topics and through its worldwide networks, FEEM has played a key role in many important national and international events and projects, and its research has appeared in leading scientific publications.

FEEM has been contributing to the UNFCCC negotiation process and has given its scientific contribution to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) process since 1995, in particular to the working group dealing with the possible pathways for mitigation of greenhouse gases and related costs. An increasing number of FEEM researchers have been Lead Authors of the Assessment Reports (AR) drafted throughout the years.

FEEM will take part in COP23 Bonn, co-organizing and participating in side-events as follow.

More real-time information about the FEEM’s commitment to COP23 are available visiting the website of its Initiative on Climate Change policy and Governance (ICCG). Furthermore, a follow-up on FEEM’s historic commitment to UNFCCC is available here.
