Capacity Building and Knowledge Sharing

We aim at strengthening the capacity of negotiators and policy-makers from Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and Small Island Developing States (SIDS) to engage in the international climate negotiations and to advocate for a strong global climate regime. We provide briefings, workshops and training to negotiators.

Latest

Climate Analytics and the Climate Action Tracker inputs to the Talanoa Dialogue summarise the latest science around the 1.5°C limit, evaluate the gap between the current levels of climate action and emissions reductions needed under the Paris Agreement, and outline the necessary steps in key sectors to get us there.  
Amplifying Caribbean voices in the push for more urgent climate action ahead of the next climate summit, COP24 in Katowice, Poland, is at the heart of an initiative by Panos, a Caribbean environmental NGO, and Climate Analytics. The initiative, Caribbean Talanoa Dialogue, gathers inputs from the region’s concerned organisations – government agencies, civil society and faith-based organisations, trade unions, community groups, scientific institutions, private sector groupings – in answer to these questions: Where are we in our response to climate change? Where do we want (and need) to go? How do we get there? The deadline for inputs is March 31.  
15 countries accounting for 0.04% of emissions ratified the Paris Agreement during the UN signing ceremony in New York. Another 23 nations accounting for 51% of emissions have declared their intention to follow by the end of 2016, according to a tracker by Climate Analytics. It brings the double threshold tantalisingly close. So what would it take to get over the finish line?  
Join us for this event in New York on 21 April - on the eve of the Signing Ceremony of the Paris Agreement, our experts will present their analysis of the delicately balanced global climate deal and the next steps for its entry into force and implementation. They will also clarify the latest climate science, assess the emission reduction pledges to date and debate how the world can adopt pathways consistent with the agreement to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 °C.  
The Paris Agreement has a double threshold of 55 countries and 55% of global emissions that must both be met before it enters into force and becomes legally binding. It opens for signature on 22 April 2016. We will be tracking the progress of ratification on this page and you will find more details regarding signature and entry into force.

Publications

Following adoption of the Paris Agreement, a number of questions have been raised related to signature, ratification and entry into force of the Paris Agreement, some practical, some strategic. This briefing looks at issues that relate to the possibility of early entry into force, the status of Party INDCs both pre-ratification and post-ratification, protection of the Paris Agreement's 1.5 degree temperature limitation goal, and the implications of decision 1/CP.21 on the Paris Agreement's treatment of loss and damage.  

Projects

IMPACT is a cross-cutting, multi-faceted project that aims to strengthen the connections between the scientific assessments of climate impacts, vulnerability and adaptation to help enable access to finance and help Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and Least Developed Countries (LDCs) implement concrete projects.  
Science and policy to assist and support SIDSs and LDCs to negotiate a strong international climate regime, enabling low carbon development and supporting adaptation needs.  
This project provides specific analytical, scientific and strategic information and support to strengthen the capacity of LDCs to defend their interests in the global climate change negotiations. Project Period: 2014 - 2016  
Implemented under a collaborative framework, this project is designed to provide specific analytical, scientific and strategic information and support to strengthen the capacity of Least Developed Countries (LDCs). Project Period: 2011 - 2012
