OIF/IFDD SUMMARY FOR POLICYMAKERS
COP23, Bonn, November 2017
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), is working to improve understanding and understanding of the issues and challenges of climate change negotiations. Publishes a Negotiations Guide, which is also the subject of a Summary for Policymakers (see the Negotiations Guide). 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 23rd Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, these documents were prepared by ENERGIES 2050 for the Institute of La Francophonie for Sustainable Development (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 Bonn as well as an overview of the Conference’s expectations and a wealth of useful information in the form of the technical sheets.
