Due to capacity of the meeting rooms and technical character of the meeting, only the invited and registered participants for the Talanoa Dialogue will be allowed to enter the UN campus on the day. Security will grant access strictly based on the registration list.

The Conference of the Parties, by its decision 1/CP.21, paragraph 20, decided to convene a facilitative dialogue among Parties in 2018 to take stock of the collective efforts of Parties in relation to progress towards the long-term goal referred to in Article 4, paragraph 1, of the Agreement and to inform the preparation of nationally determined contributions pursuant to Article 4, paragraph 8, of the Agreement.

At COP23, the Talanoa Dialogue was launched, to start in January 2018. The approach to the dialogue is contained in the annex II to decision 1/CP.23.

An in-depth consideration of the central questions of the Talanoa Dialogue will take place on Sunday, 6 May 2018. These discussions will be conducted throughout the day and will proceed in the tradition of Talanoa.

Six groups (known as Talanoas) will be set up, consisting of about 35 participants: 30 Party representatives and 5 non-Party stakeholder representatives. The meetings will be organized at the UN Campus, located at Platz der Vereinten Nationen 1, in Bonn.
