At the UN Climate Change Conference COP23 in Bonn, Germany, which ended last week, the nations of the world agreed to launch the next steps towards higher climate action ambition before 2020. And they made progress towards completing the guidelines necessary to fully and rapidly implement the Paris Climate Change Agreement.
Attracting almost 30,000 participants this year alone, the UN Climate Conference has become the biggest international annual gathering under the auspices of the UN. Leaders from governments at all levels and representatives from the whole spectrum of society and economic sectors came together to take stock of current efforts to combat climate change and to take climate action further, faster together.
On Tuesday 28 November 2017, at 15:00 – 16:00 CET, UN Climate Change Executive Secretary, Patricia Espinosa will explain the key outcomes of COP23 in a free live video webinar open to all. As part of the SD Talks on Climate Action, Ms. Espinosa will highlight some of the decisions taken by country representatives and will provide an update on the actions undertaken by non-Party stakeholders whilst looking forward to 2018 “Facilitative Dialogue”.
The event will be moderated by Nick Nuttall, UN Climate Change and COP23 Spokesperson and Simona Costanzo-Sow from the UNSSC Knwledge Centre for Sustainable Development.
This SD Talk is the last episode of a Special Series on Climate Action organised by the UNSSC Knowledge Centre for Sustainable Development in partnership with UN Climate Change (UNFCCC).
