ENERGIES 2050 in Lima
December 1 to 12, 2014
For the 20th Climate Conference

ENERGIES 2050 is actively involved in the fight against climate change and has been heavily involved in the 20th Conference of the Parties (CoP20) under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Lima, 1 to 12 December 2014. This conference is a milestone in the negotiations towards a new international agreement on the post-2020 climate regime, which will have to be adopted in Paris in 2015.

Representatives of ENERGIES 2050 are present in Lima throughout the conference and will be involved in a number of events, including presentations, round tables and discussions on our various fields of activity and our projects on the topic of climate change. ENERGIES 2050 also contributed to several publications related to COP20. We suggest you to discover some excerpts below.

Guide to the negotiations (OIF/IFDD)

The Negotiations Guide and the Summary for Policymakers: Essential Francophone publications to share the necessary knowledge and to allow national delegations and each one to have a detailed analysis and means of action

The Francophone Institute for Sustainable Development (IFDD), a subsidiary body of the International Organization of La Francophonie (OIF), has been working to improve understanding and understanding of the issues and challenges of climate change negotiations. Publishes a Guide to Negotiations, which is also the subject of a Summary for Decision-Makers. These documents are widely disseminated upstream of each Conference in digital format and during printed conferences. For several years they have been translated into English to meet the demands of English-speaking countries and partners, because such detailed reference documents do not exist beyond the French-speaking world at the moment.

At the 20th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, these documents were prepared by ENERGIES 2050 on behalf of the IFDD.

ENERGIES 2050 has provided editorial direction, co-ordination and is one of the principal authors of the Negotiations Guide and Summary for Decision Makers. These documents provide readers with a history of the negotiations and present an analysis of the various issues to be negotiated in Lima as well as an overview of the Conference’s expectations and a wealth of useful information in the form of the technical sheets.

A portal dedicated to the Lima COP20 was set up on the Médiaterre de la Francophonie portal.

ENERGIES 2050 will regularly dispatch dispatches before, during and after the conference. It will be a matter of regularly disseminating information on the progress of the negotiations.
