The Bonn Climate Change Conference of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) convened from May 16 to 26, 2016 in Bonn, Germany to discuss the operationalization of the Paris Agreement which was adopted by 194 Parties in December 2015 and endorsed by 177 countries in April 2016. The Conference is expected to have laid the foundation for the success of the COP 22 in Marrakech, Morocco in November; however, it is still a long way from achieving the vision of balance, equity, and ambition to genuinely solve the planetary crisis.
The Bonn climate change negotiations commenced last October 23, 2015 with a still contentious 33-page draft negotiating text.
Nearly 200 world leaders are meeting in Bonn, Germany from June 1 – 11, 2015 to whittle down a 90-page draft negotiating text into a more concise document to be signed in Paris on the 21st Conference of Parties (COP) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) later this year.
