The Collaboration Forum is a Highlight of the Technical Expert Meetings

Actions May 4, 2017 2:57 pm

Participants of this year’s Technical Expert Meetings on Mitigation are invited to join a Collaboration Forum on 11 May.

Running the course of next week, 8 – 12 May, the Technical Expert Meetings (TEMs) will focus on cross-cutting issues in the urban environment and land use. A number of thematic sessions will showcase how inspiring climate actions are key to reducing emissions, as well as sustainable development.

Generating international interest, the meetings will bring together speakers from developed and developing countries, international organizations, and the private sector.

Beginning in 2014, the TEMs are part of the technical examination process on mitigation to explore high potential mitigation policies, practices, and technologies with significant sustainable development benefits.

With an eye towards accelerating climate action, the meetings aim to increase engagement and cooperation amongst national and sub-national governments, the private sector, financial institutions, leading international organizations and other stakeholders.

Answering this call, the Collaboration Forum was created to bring thought leaders together in an informal setting to make connections and discuss potential partnerships.

Taking place on 11 May, from 13:00-15:00 in the Club Lounge of the World Conference Center Bonn, the interactive session will provide national, regional, and city governments with the opportunity to network with representatives from international organizations and the private sector. Following an open house format, participants will have the ability to work the room, view posters from different organizations, and connect on potential support and collaboration for climate actions.

Organizations interested in bringing a poster to showcase work relating to cross-cutting issues in the urban environment and land use should contact the secretariat at MIS_unit@unfccc.int.
