UNFCCC negotiations

Italian Climate Network has participated with its own delegation of youth, activists and experts in UNFCCC climate negotiations since 2011, and was officially recognized as an “observer” in 2014. The association is affiliated with two of the UNFCCC’s internal constituencies (coordination and exchange groups): “YOUNGO”, which includes youth climate movements from around the world, and “Women and Gender”,  composed by organizations working to promote the relationship between climate change, women’s rights and gender equality. Italian Climate Network’s work at the negotiations is characterized by the production of a daily COP Bulletin in Italian with news and reports from the negotiating rooms, first in Italy for information, level of detail and technical accuracy. In 2021, between pre-COP26 and COP26, the ICN delegation sent 18 COP Bulletins including 39 thematic in-depth reports, accompanied by live social and side events in collaboration with other European and African organizations.

COP15: START UP OF NEGOTIATIONS TO DEFEND NATURE AND HALT BIODIVERSITY LOSS

COP15, the United Nations Conference on Biodiversity, begins today in Montreal. During the fifth session of preparatory negotiations, which ended on Monday, December 5, countries' divergent positions remained polarized on most issues and no significant progress was achieved. We cannot afford to exit COP15 without an ambitious and transformative agreement, with adequate economic resources to support it and mechanisms for implementation and monitoring.
