The Bonn Climate Change Conference of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) convened from May 16 to 26, 2016 in Bonn, Germany to discuss the operationalization of the Paris Agreement which was adopted by 194 Parties in December 2015 and endorsed by 177 countries in April 2016. The Conference is expected to have laid the foundation for the success of the COP 22 in Marrakech, Morocco in November; however, it is still a long way from achieving the vision of balance, equity, and ambition to genuinely solve the planetary crisis.
The Bonn climate change negotiations commenced last October 23, 2015 with a still contentious 33-page draft negotiating text.
Negotiators have yet again wrapped up another set of climate talks without producing a draft text that will be the basis of a new global climate agreement to be adopted in December by the 21st Conference of Parties (COP21) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
The authors of the 5th assessment report (AR5) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) stressed the need for urgent global coordinated action to combat human-induced climate change based on historical responsibility and equity.
Nearly 200 world leaders are meeting in Bonn, Germany from June 1 – 11, 2015 to whittle down a 90-page draft negotiating text into a more concise document to be signed in Paris on the 21st Conference of Parties (COP) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) later this year.
The ninth meeting of the Green Climate Fund Board (GCFB 9) convened in Songdo, Republic of Korea from March 24 to 26, 2015 to receive updates on the status of contributions among other matters.
