The United Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is hosting the Bonn Climate Change Conference. The conference includes the fiftieth sessions of the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice and the Subsidiary Body (SB 50) for Implementation. The conference will host a wide range of events, meetings, and negotiating sessions that will set the stage for raising ambition to curb greenhouse gas emissions, accelerate resilience-building efforts, and ensure that climate policy is built on a solid foundation of the best available science and knowledge. 

IIASA Energy Program Director and leader of the CD-Links Project, Keywan Riahi, will be attending the in-session workshop about long-term climate finance (LTF). All attending the conference are welcome to attend the workshop. This workshop is under the Conference of the Parties (COP) and the purpose of it is to focus on mitigation actions addressing climate change. It should also be noted that the outcomes of the workshop will be summarized by the secretariat for consideration by the COP at its 25th session. Dr. Riahi will contribute some insights about the investment needs of climate change and and finance for mitigation actions.

Developing countries’ NDCs: lessons learned for increasing transparency, ambition, and ownership

Based on extensive research on NDCs, we discuss interlinkages between development and climate action. We draw lessons learned from the current NDCs for future NDCs on e.g. conditionality of NDCs, equity, linkages to development agendas, SDGs and transparency requirements.
