ODI On... Bonn climate conferences 2013

3 - 14 June 2013

First steps towards 2015 global agreement?
The 2013 climate change conferences in Bonn are hoped to be the first steps towards an agreement on global climate action in Paris in 2015. With the Fast Start Finance period over, pressure is also on developed countries to find new and additional funding to tackle climate change and to scale it up dramatically before a new global agreement on emissions reductions would come into force in 2020.

ODI goes to Bonn well placed to comment on many key issues, with our analysis of Fast Start Finance contributions, research on the effectiveness of key climate finance funds and analysis of existing climate finance pledges and payments. ODI staff are hosting a  joint side event with WRI on climate finance impact and effectiveness, the CDKN climate change knowledge brokers workshop, as well as chairing and speaking in events organised by IGES, BMU/BMZ and KfW.
