Committee Program Call
In November 2017, the international community gathered in Bonn, Germany at the 23rd Conference of the Parties (COP) to continue the implementation of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. As the world celebrated the one year anniversary of the Paris Agreement's entry into force, it is still grappling with the implications of the U.S. administration's announced intention to withdraw from the treaty. COP23 also made history with Fiji being the first small island developing state to hold the Presidency of the COP. This committee call will bring together experts to discuss the outcomes of the negotiations, the role of non-state participation in the COP and the trend towards increasing private investment in climate solutions. We will also report back on progress on the upcoming deadlines at COP 24 in Poland to finalize elements of the implementation guidelines for the Paris Agreement and what that means for countries, states and companies.
