Bonn Climate Change Conference – June 2022

This year’s Bonn annual UN Climate Change Conference government delegates, observers and various experts gather to begin taking stock of where the world stands when it comes to implementing the Paris Climate Change Agreement. The conference is designed to lay the groundwork for success at COP27 in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt.

This will happen at a technical dialogue during this year’s Bonn Climate Change Conference (6-16 June). The dialogue is a key component of this first, two-year global stocktake process to assess collective progress towards achieving the Paris Agreement’s goal to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

Achieving this goal is essential to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, which include ever more frequent extreme events such as storms, droughts and heatwaves.

The dialogue runs from 9 to 14 June and will feature open and frank conversations among government delegates, various experts and other key stakeholders.

The first global stocktake is unfolding in a critical decade for climate action. Global emissions need to be halved by 2030 for the world to stand a chance of achieving the 1.5 degrees Celsius goal. The world is presently far off course in its efforts to achieve this objective.

The stocktake will therefore focus on ways to bridge any gaps in order to increase ambition and action on climate change.

It will end two years before countries are due to submit their updated national climate plans (formally known as Nationally Determined Contributions) in 2024-25 and is designed to help spur countries to step up climate action to avoid the worst impacts of climate change.

In Bonn, governments will focus on work in the key areas of mitigation
