In relation to the MENA Climate Week 2022, ESCWA, in partnership with the League of Arab States, the United Nations Environment Programme, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization and the Arab Negotiation Group is organizing the 14th Regional Training Workshop on Capacity Development for Climate Change Negotiations for the Arab Countries.
The main objective of this workshop is to support Arab States in implementing the recent decisions made at the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 26) and discuss critical issues for the upcoming COP 27. Discussions cover the latest outcomes of negotiations at COP 26 related to the Glasgow Climate Pact and decisions on issues related to adaptation, mitigation, finance and technology. Discussions also focus on Article 6 on carbon markets and the enhanced transparency framework, regional positions and priorities for action, and preparation for the June session and COP 27.
The workshop will gather senior negotiators from Arab States with experience serving on national negotiation teams. Arab Governments are invited to nominate and include junior negotiators in their delegations to the workshop who are qualified to become members of future national negotiation teams.
