ecbi 2019 Regional Training Workshop Report – South and South-East Asia
The 2019 ecbi Regional Training Workshop for Asia and the Pacific was held on 31 July and 1 August in Kathmandu, Nepal. The workshop, attended by 31 participants from the region, was organised by IIED and the Prakriti Resources Centre (PRC), and hosted by the Ministry of Forests and Environment (MoFE), Nepal.
This report highlights the key areas of discussion, which, in addition to an introduction to the history of the global climate negotiations, included thematic sessions on climate diplomacy in the year ahead; mitigation and the Paris Agreement Rulebook; legal language; and cooperative approaches. Mock negotiations and a session on formulating a group position gave participants a taste of the real negotiations.
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.
