The long road to Paris


On 12 December 2015, the Paris Agreement on climate change was agreed, setting out what countries need to do to address the shared global problem of climate change under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). It was an emotional moment for IIED’s team in Paris, who had provided advice and support for the Least Developed Countries (LDC) Group in the negotiations leading to the talks over the last five years, working closely with three consecutive chairs of the LDC Group — the Gambia, Nepal and Angola.

Here we report on IIED’s contribution to the final stretch of the long road, through 2015 and 2016.

Project information

We aim to create a more level playing field for all government delegations taking part in climate negotiations at the international level through our work. That's why IIED manages the European Capacity Building Initiative (ecbi) training and support programme, which focuses on building the capacity of UNFCCC negotiators from vulnerable developing countries.
