A view of the World Conference Center Bonn, venue of the Fiji / Bonn Climate Change Conference 2017

The Bonn Climate Change Conference will convene from 6-17 November 2017, in Bonn, Germany, under the Presidency of Fiji. At this session the 23rd Conference of the Parties (COP 23) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the 13th Conference of the Parties serving as the Meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP 13), and the second session of the first Conference of the Parties serving as the Meeting of the Parties to the Paris Agreement (CMA 1-2) will take place. The 47th sessions of the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI 47) and the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA 47), and the fourth meeting of the first session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Paris Agreement (APA 1-4) will also convene.

The meeting is expected to be technical in nature, focused on issues related to operationalizing the Paris Agreement. The SBI, SBSTA and APA will undertake this technical work, which is set for completion in 2018 at COP 24. Among the many technical issues parties will discuss are: further guidance in relation to mitigation, including on the features of Nationally-Determined Contributions (NDCs), and in relation to adaptation communications; modalities, procedures, and guidelines for the enhanced transparency framework; matters related to the global stocktake; modalities and procedures for the committee to facilitate implementation and enhance compliance; matters related to Article 6 of the Paris Agreement (cooperative approaches); modalities and procedures for the operation and use of a public registry, or registries; and other matters related to the implementation of the Paris Agreement.

In addition to work related to the “Paris rulebook,” the COP, CMP, SBSTA and SBI will take up regular agenda items related to the implementation of the Convention and Protocol, including finance, adaptation, capacity building, gender, loss and damage, and the local communities and indigenous peoples platform. The COP Presidency is expected to continue to consult on the 2018 facilitative dialogue.
