A training for LDCs Climate Change Negotiators was held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia organized and supported by UNITAR as part of UNDP/UNEP global programme to build capacity of LDC’s to effectively participate in intergovernmental climate change process.

The training aimed to strengthen understanding of the mechanics of the negotiating process within the UNFCCC, inform main issues related to the entry into force of the Paris Agreement (PA), and develop specific negotiation skills and learn to best utilize these skills. Specific learning objectives were to:

c. Determine the right steps to take for an efficient and effective preparation for the negotiations; and
