Helping to Navigate UN Climate Change Negotiations
New Perimeter is providing assistance to Georgia’s Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources Protection to support their participation at international climate changes negotiations.
The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Kyoto Protocol (KP) are international treaties governing the global intergovernmental cooperation related to climate change. Each year, nations that are parties to the UNFCCC/KP, together with private sector, nongovernmental organizations and media observers, gather at the Conference of Parties (COP) to discuss issues of sustainable development, the environment, and all matters related to climate change mitigation and adaptation.
New Perimeter is providing assistance to Georgia to support their participation at the COP and at other ancillary meetings. As part of this project, New Perimeter provides Georgia with both international legal expertise to better understand the complex legal and treaty texts and personnel to more effectively navigate the often sprawling landscape of UN climate negotiations.
New Perimeter’s support focuses on issues surrounding the Green Climate Fund, climate finance, Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions, Low Emission Development Strategies, national communications, and possible developing country commitments.
