Bonn Climate Change Conference - October 2014





Participate in the first Multilateral Assessment and submit your questions

The first round of the newly established multilateral assessment (MA) will be conducted at the Climate Change Conference in Peru, Lima at the beginning of December. The assessment process offers a unique opportunity to engage all countries to assess how developed countries are implementing actions to reduce emissions.

A total of 17 developed countries will be assessed. Countries hereby have the opportunity to raise and register questions, specifically on how developed countries are progressing towards their economy-wide emission reduction targets.

The period to raise questions expired 30 September 2014.  Parties that will be multilaterally assessed now have until 28 November 2014 to answer the questions.

To raise a question, please go to the individual Party page by clicking here.
