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. Jointly with Parties or other organizations, observer organizations present their work or
foster discussions on key issues, often engaging the audience in a Q&A session.
The Government of Qatar has generously provided side event facilities. Side events are usually 90 minutes
In order to channel the dynamic and engaging views and ideas of participants the secretariat continues to
organize the "Climate Change Studio" - a platform that provides an opportunity for participants
to be interviewed briefly by a professional journalist on actions, solutions, observations and issues that
impact on climate change. All interviews are filmed, edited and made available on the UNFCCC website as
well as on Climate Change TV, the world's first internet
broadcaster dedicated entirely to climate change issues. Interviews will be catalogued in a fully
searchable database alongside other interviews with world leaders, expert observers, decision makers and
activists in the international climate change debate.
All interviews are announced on the UNFCCC website (link to schedule) and CCTV monitors throughout the
conference venue. For further information on the Climate Change Studio and the booking of interview slots,
please contact the secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org
Besides the official side events coordinated by the UNFCCC secretariat, Parties and observer organizations
often organize their own events relating to the climate change negotiation process outside the conference
premises. Some NGOs also hold media actions or publicity activities in order to raise public awareness or
to communicate with delegates during the sessions. The information on such events and activities will be
announced here on a request basis.
