Climate diplomacy

We provide strategic, technical and real-time negotiations support and capacity building to countries on the frontlines of the climate crisis, Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and Least Developed Countries (LDCs), in international climate forums including the UNFCCC, Paris Agreement, IPCC and the Green Climate Fund.

Our demand-driven support includes the provision of briefings, reports, capacity building, training, and strategic advice, underpinned by the latest climate science and policy analysis. We provide support to the Chairs of the Alliance of Small Island States and LDC Group, UN Ambassadors, ministers and climate negotiators.

With our teams embedded in SIDS and LDCs, we also work with regional partners and networks to indigenise the Paris Agreement and enable its implementation in line with regional priorities.

Our work in this area focuses on:

  • strengthening sustained institutional capacity in SIDS and LDCs to engage in multilateral climate processes
  • supporting efforts to deliver on the mitigation, adaptation and finance ambition needed to meet the Paris Agreement goals, and to adequately address loss and damage
  • thought leadership on climate issues to inform key political moments and emerging priorities in the international climate agenda
  • supporting the development of regional legal and policy frameworks on climate action for both domestic implementation and international engagement
