Side Events were established as a platform for observer organizations to highlight diverse climate change issues at UNFCCC conferences. Side Events are a vital component of the sessions, as they provide opportunities for information dissemination, capacity building, policy discussions and legitimizing global governance. Alongside Parties or UN agencies, observer organizations present their work or foster discussions on key issues, often engaging the audience in a Q&A session.
The online registration period closed on 21 March 2014. All applicants will be informed on the outcome of their application through SEORS in the coming weeks. Those who missed the registration period could be placed on a waiting list in case there are cancellations. For additional information, please consult the List of Side Events or contact the Side Events and Exhibit team firstname.lastname@example.org.
Events by Parties and observer organizations relating to the climate change negotiation process, which are held outside the conference premises.
