As part of the build-up to the COP25, the Nigerian Civil Society Framework on Paris Agreement and SDGs (NCSFPAS) coordinated by Climate and Sustainable Development Network (CSDevNet), the National platform for Pan African Climate Justice Alliance (PACJA), affiliate sector-based networks, thematic groups, members and partners are organizing a Pre-COP25 meeting and Climate Week of Action.
The upcoming 25th Conference of Parties (COP 25) is scheduled to hold between 3rd and 13th December 2019 in Madrid, Spain. Participants are expected from 196 countries including the European Union and conversations will be centred on achieving tougher, more concrete and realistic plans to enhance country-specific Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) by 2020, with a view to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 45 per cent over the next decade, and to net zero emissions by 2050.
Major expectations from the meeting and the Climate Week of Action are the Paris Agreement Implementation Package and how conclusions held during the Bonn Intersessional Meeting (June 2019) will be translated, including the discussions on Article 6 on New Market Mechanisms and the absence of a market to facilitate the implementation of the Paris Climate Agreement.
The main priorities of Nigeria and the key points to be followed in the negotiations will be identified for the COP25 in Madrid, as well as links between the various experts and the different negotiating themes established in such a way as to exploit synergies.
The workshop, which is expected to bring together state and non-state actors from the six geo-political zones of the country and beyond, is scheduled to hold as follows:
Date: 19th – 20th November, 2019
