United Nations Climate Dialogues 2020

Event Summary

Running November 23- December 4, 2020

Event Details

The Climate Dialogues series of events (23 November to 4 December) will be convened by the SBSTA and SBI Chairs, in collaboration with the COP 25 Presidency and incoming COP 26 Presidency. The aim of the Climate Dialogues is to support the engagement of Parties and other stakeholders in the UNFCCC process for timely implementation of the activities mandated for 2020 and keep the delivery of mandates for COP 26 in 2021 on track, while minimizing the impact of postponing all UNFCCC sessions planned for 2020 to 2021 owing to COVID-19.

The objective of the Climate Dialogues is to provide a platform for Parties and other stakeholders to showcase progress made in 2020 and exchange views and ideas across the subsidiary bodies and COP agendas mandated for 2020. As guided by the Bureau at its meeting on 25 August, The Climate Dialogues will also provide a platform for advancing implementation of activities mandated for 2020, to the extent possible and, where necessary, identifying any potential further action that the SB Chairs could undertake to help Parties to prepare for effectively engaging in the work of the subsidiary bodies at the sessions to take place in 2021. Overall, the Climate Dialogues should help to advance work under the subsidiary bodies and the COP in a virtual setting, thereby paving the way for a successful COP 26.
