Becoming a UNFCCC delegate: what you need to know
Attending UN climate negotiations for the first time is daunting, especially if it is a Conference of the Parties (COP) session. With so many meetings happening in parallel and using unfamiliar jargon and acronyms, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) process is notoriously complex.
This toolkit will help new delegates, in particular from the Least Developed Countries, navigate the session. It focuses on the process, rather than the content of negotiations, and offers some practical tips for getting through the days (and nights).
Reaching equitable outcomes for the most vulnerable countries and communities through global policymaking processes involves more than attending formal negotiating sessions. IIED’s work on climate diplomacy supports climate diplomats from the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) to better advocate for the most vulnerable.
