RIPAP presented on the COP23 side event
09. Mar 2018
Climate Change (UNFCCC). The UNFCCC was adopted in 1992 at the Rio Earth Summit, which marked the beginning of the international community’s first concerted effort to confront the problem of climate change. Known also as the Rio Convention, the UNFCCC established a framework for action to stabilise concentrations of greenhouse gases in the earth’s atmosphere. The UNFCCC entered into force in 1994, and nearly all of the world’s nations—a total of 195—have now signed on.
Each year the parties to the agreement convene to assess progress in implementing the convention and, more broadly, dealing with climate change. As such, the RIPAP took part in the side event on the 9 November where the Project Director Ms Nadya Boneva and two of the Key Experts, Mr Justin Goodwin and Ms Monique Voogt made presentations on the projects, its goals and aims and on the recent developments in the Western Balkans and Turkey.
