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 duration.

Climate Change Studio
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

Other Events
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.
