United Nations Climate Change

Negotiations – ADP 2.11

19 - 23 October 2015

Session 2.11 of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)'s Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action is being held in Bonn, Germany, from 19 - 23 October 2015.

This intersessional meeting in Bonn will be the last before the long-awaited Paris climate change conference, bringing together attendees from government, academia, business and advocacy groups to make final decisions on the text that will form 2015's international climate deal. This deal will be agreed in Paris, at one of the most significant events in environmental negotiations this decade.

This delegation will follow their Bonn experience with a tour of major sites in neighbouring cities, having the fantastic opportunity to immerse themselves in German culture as well as international environmental politics.

  BEN ABRAHAM | @benabrahamnz Ben is just starting a PhD in Public Policy at the University of Oxford, focusing on transnational climate change governance. During his undergraduate studies in New Zealand, Ben was involved with a range of youth organisations, particularly P3 Foundation. His biggest daily challenge is trying to reconcile his passion for various causes with his generally chilled out approach to life. Over the past three years he's also lived, worked, and studied in Peru, Zambia and the United States. He loves travelling, storytelling, sports, and learning about new places, people, and cultures.
