The Bonn Climate Change Conference, taking place 5th-15th June in Bonn, Germany, is an important event for climate negotiations. It is part of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) process. The conference brings together representatives from different countries to discuss and address climate change issues. During the conference, two subsidiary bodies of the UNFCCC, the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) and the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA), will meet. 

These meetings are significant because they provide an opportunity for countries to assess and review the implementation of climate agreements like the Paris Agreement. At the Bonn conference, negotiations will focus on various topics, including just transition pathways, renewable energy deployment goals, support for developing countries, and the assessment of climate change impacts. 

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will present insights from its Sixth Assessment Report, offering valuable scientific information on climate change. The conference also includes workshops and dialogue events where experts discuss issues like loss and damage, mitigation, adaptation, indigenous peoples’ rights, gender, and the ocean. These discussions aim to find solutions and make progress in addressing climate change.

The Bonn Climate Change Conference is a crucial step in the lead-up to the next Conference of the Parties (COP 28) in Dubai, where a global stocktake under the Paris Agreement will take place. The stocktake is an assessment of the collective progress in addressing climate change and will help determine future actions. Overall, the conference provides an opportunity for countries to come together, reflect on their efforts to combat climate change, and work towards a sustainable future.
