Registration of observer ogranizations' representatives for UNFCCC sessions follows a process with four stages:

  1. Admitted observer organizations (i.e. organizations with observer status) nominate all delegates they would like to send to a UNFCCC session;
  2. Based on safety and security considerations and the nominations received, the UNFCCC secretariat sets participation quotas, i.e. the observer organizations are informed how many of the nominated representatives they can confirm as delegates;
  3. Observer organizations confirm their delegates according to their quota;
  4. Confirmed delegates can pick up their conference badge and participate in a UNFCCC conference.
Information on the registration process can be found on the web pages for admitted NGOs and admitted IGOs.

The speaking slots are allocated by NGO constituency and limited to 2 minutes each. The statements are uploaded to the submissions portal under the respective body and session if provided by the constituency.
