UN Climate Change
To be added.
The secretariat of the UN Framework on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is organizing a Climate Action Fair during the UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn (8-18 May).
Under the Paris Climate Change Agreement, national governments have encouraged increased involvement of “non-Party” stakeholders, including civil society, businesses, cities and regions. This is crucial to scale up climate action, particularly during the years leading up to 2020, so that the key objective of the Paris Agreement can be achieved – to keep the maximum global average temperature rise to as close as possible to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
In order to help fulfill this mandate, so-called “High-Level Champions”, with the support of the secretariat, launched the Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action at the UN Climate Change Conference in Marrakech last year (COP22).
The partnership builds upon the initiatives focused on non-Party stakeholders launched at the United Nations Secretary General’s Climate Summit in September 2014. It is designed to enhance the coherence of the activities of the various coalitions, initiatives and organizations who have been active in these various processes and to guide the work of mobilizing stepped-up climate action up to 2020.
The following events will take place at the Bonn Climate Action Fair:
The side-events and exhibitions organized by UNFCCC constituted bodies and observers will be clustered, which will allow interested stakeholders to easily find relevant information and identify experts, interested audience and initiatives related to these topics. The themes are: climate action; partnerships; rulebook; science, sustainable Development, TEM-A (Disaster Risk Reduction and National Adaptation Plans). More information on the side events may be found here.
The Climate Action Fair will resonate beyond the WCCB thanks to the Internet and social media, to amplify messaging coming out of it. The main hashtag of the conference is #SB46.
Along with live webcast, social media community tools such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Flickr enable virtual participation in the Bonn Climate Change Conference. Here you can find the full list of our social media accounts:
