Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Bonn Climate Change conference was postponed from June to October 2020. While a face-to-face meeting was not possible, a virtual meeting took place during the originally scheduled dates for discussions related to the Paris Agreement.
A series of events convened to help maintain momentum for climate action. The events convened to promote information exchange and to show progress even amid the current difficult circumstances. No formal negotiations occured during these events.
Several events relate to the work of the constituted bodies, which are the bodies that focus on implementing various aspects of the Convention and the Paris Agreement. These technical bodies updated on their work and their future plans. Other events discussed ongoing and emerging issues, such as a sustainable recovery from the pandemic.
