Incoming COP 24 President Michal Kurtyka, Poland, UNFCCC Executive Secretary Patricia Espinosa, and Tomasz Chruszczow, COP 24 Presidency, Poland, attend the Talanoa Dialogue

On Sunday, seven Talanoa groups (“Talanoas”) met in an informal setting as part of the Talanoa Dialogue. Launched at the Fiji / Bonn Climate Change Conference in November 2017 (COP 23), the Dialogue is a global conversation about efforts to combat climate change, involving both UNFCCC parties and non-party stakeholders.

The Dialogue is mandated to take stock of collective efforts towards progress on the Paris Agreement’s long-term mitigation goal. It will also inform the preparation of parties’ Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), the second round of which are expected in 2020.

Following the Pacific region’s Talanoa tradition, the Dialogue’s goal is to share stories to find solutions for the common good. To this end, participants discussed three central questions:

  • Where are we?
  • Where do we want to go?
  • How do we get there?

Sunday’s meeting was part of the Talanoa Dialogue’s “preparatory phase,” which precedes a “political phase” that will take place at the Katowice Climate Change Conference in December 2018 (COP 24). Each of the seven Talanoas was named after an area in Fiji that is affected by climate change.

In addition to sharing stories during Sunday’s Dialogue, parties and non-party stakeholders participated by submitting inputs. By 2 April 2018, stakeholders had submitted a total of 220 inputs to the Talanoa Dialogue platform. An overview is available here.

A report-back from the Talanoas will take place on Tuesday, 8 May.

IISD Reporting Services, through its Earth Negotiations Bulletin (ENB) Meeting Coverage, provided daily digital coverage, daily reports, daily videos, and a summary and analysis report from the Bonn Climate Change Conference - April/May 2018.
