COP 23 Bonn UNFCCC
The annual UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) negotiations kick off in Bonn 6-17 November. A theme this year is building greater climate resilience.
Our researchers led by centre director Johan Rockström will give a loud and clear message about what it will take to meet the Paris Agreement. We will put on the table what it will take to address the colossal challenge to bring fossil fuel emissions to zero. And we will articulate how we can do this while protecting vital ecosystems and natural carbon sinks. Indeed, we will make the case to climate negotiators that they must get serious about the critical role biodiversity will play in stabilizing the climate.
As well as centre researchers, we are collaborating with Christiana Figueres from Mission 2020 and former head of UNFCCC, Mary Robinson and Kevin Anderson from the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research and CEMUS Uppsala University.
