COP23: EUEI PDF participates with two side-events

Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) and Future Energy Scenarios for African Cities: these are the topics of EUEI PDF’s sessions at this year’s Climate Change Conference in Bonn/Germany.

Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) and Future Energy Scenarios for African Cities: these are the topics of EUEI PDF’s sessions at this year’s Climate Change Conference in Bonn/Germany. From 6 to 17 November, the world climate community will come together in Bonn to discuss about the targets and ambitions of the Paris Climate Agreement. Launched at COP21 in Paris back in 2015, and reinforced through the definition of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) at COP22 in Marrakech in 2016, the world now looks at Bonn, where the Fiji islands will hold this year’s COP Presidency with the support of the German government. The South Pacific island state will bring its very own case to the agenda. Frank Bainimarama, Fijian Prime Minister, introduced his Presidency with impressions from the effects of climate change in his region: “rising seas, extreme weather events (…) threaten our way of life and in some cases, our very existence”.

20,000 to 25,000 participants are expected to attend the 14-day conference to tackle these problems and commonly work on a way forward. The EUEI PDF together with its partners will contribute to the debate with two side-events. Click the links to learn more about the events:
