Every year, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) hosts its annual conference, known as the ‘COP’=Conference of Parties. The COPs are separated by preparatory sessions, called “intersessionals”, that take place usually in the month of May in Bonn, Germany, where the office of the UNFCCC is located, to discuss the agenda points of the implementation and the technical side of the international measures in regards to climate change, namely the Kyoto Protocol, and recently the Paris Agreement.
Hereby we would like to open the call for delegates to the United Nations Climate Change Conference SBI 48/SBSTA 48/APA 1-5 which will happen on April 30th - May 10th 2017 in Bonn, Germany. We will receive how many delegates we exactly can send halfway through March, but in previous meetings we had a maximum of 6 delegates participating in at least half of the conference (30 April - May 6th and/or May 7th-10th).
