See all locations on the map

December 2014: Lima. December 2015: Paris. Insiders know: this is about the negotiations under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Others might wonder: UNFCCC? Paris? What is all the fuss about? On May 13, we will kick off explaining how the process works. How is the Convention organised? What is the role of the Kyoto Protocol and possibly other protocols? What is it all those people do in Lima and Paris, who are they, and what is really involved in the negotiations? Who are the key players? How do we know that countries comply with agreements and commitments?

2015 will be a very interesting year, probably with lots of media reports on the ongoing climate negotiations. These three sessions should enable you to put what you read and hear in context, learning from experienced people in the field. You can sign up for individual sessions as well as for all three.

   

Programme: 

May 13, Amersfoort  

On May 13, we will kick off explaining how the process works. How is the Convention organised? What is the role of the Kyoto Protocol and possibly other protocols? What is it all those people do in Lima and Paris, who are they, and what is really involved in the negotiations? Who are the key players? How do we know that countries comply with agreements and commitments?

 

October 6, Utrecht 

The second session will look at the so-called Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs, formerly known as “pledges”). Parties will expectedly submit their INDCs no later than early autumn. What have countries put forward in these INDCs to contribute to tackling climate change? Is that sufficient for the 2°C target? If not, where are the opportunities to close the gap? How are commitments and national contributions evaluated?

 

November 2, Utrecht  

In the final session, we will look at what can be expected from the coming negotiations in Paris. Now understanding what is happening behind closed doors, what can we expect will be the outcome this time? Will it be another disappointment like Copenhagen, or will it be a step in the right direction?
