The Bonn Climate Change Conference continued on Tuesday, 16 May.

Throughout the day, mandated events convened. The Technical Expert Meeting on adaptation, focusing on integrating climate adaptation with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the Multi-stakeholder dialogue on the operationalization of the local communities and indigenous peoples’ platform met all day. A COP roundtable discussion on the process to identify the information to be provided by parties in accordance with Paris Agreement Article 9.5 convened in the morning, and the 5th Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE) Dialogue met in the afternoon to discuss climate change training and international cooperation.
