While Negotiators Meet in Bonn to Agree on Rules for Implementing the Paris Agreement, the World Is Calling for Ambitious Climate Action
The world’s governments are gathering in Bonn from Monday 6th November to Friday 17th November for the next round of UN climate negotiations, COP23.
In a year that has seen devastating climate impacts, from Hurricane Harvey to deadly floods in South East Asia, action on climate change has never been more urgently needed.
That's why on Saturday 4th November, thousands took to the streets to call for a swift move from coal to renewable sources of energy.
The main task for these negotiations is to come up with a set of rules on how countries are allowed to make and measure progress while implementing the 2015 Paris Agreement (an Agreement now joined by all countries but Syria and the USA).
COP23 will be an important foundation for a seminal meeting - called the Talanoa Dialogue - in 2018, when countries will review their progress since 2015 and commit to scaling up their action plans in line with Paris targets.
