Hello, everyone! We will be having our fourth MYD 2016 Training Series this coming Sunday with Chee Yoke Ling from the Third World Network (TWN). Admission for the training is free. Join us at the training if you are interested in knowing how climate change policy works in the UNFCCC context! RSVP HERE or at the form below! 🙂

Kindly read up on TWN’s analysis of the Paris COP 21 and Paris Agreement and a shorter version of the Paris Agreement analysis which makes some links to the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda of the UN as preliminary reading prior to the training which will help to provide an insightful background of COP 21 and the Paris Agreement itself.

These 2 links are also useful:

  1. Civil Society Equity Review of INDCs – focus on mitigation and implementing the concept of “fair shares”.
  2. TWN Climate News Update of the Bonn meeting (16-26 May) with articles on the debates and directions for Marrakech.
