Becoming a UNFCCC delegate: what you need to know
Toolkit, 50 pages
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).
Our efforts to strengthen the capabilities of the Least Developed Countries (LDC) Group in the UN climate talks involved participating in training workshops and strategy meetings, informing the negotiations through research, and developing toolkits for new delegates
