QUNO at COP25 in Madrid, Spain

QUNO was present at the UNFCCC Conference of Parties (COP25) in Madrid, Spain from 27 November to 15 December. Our focus was on supporting the central negotiations, mechanisms for response measures, loss and damage, and the Local Communities and Indigenous Peoples Platform. At COP25, we launched The Government Official's Toolkit - 2020 edition, and distributed a leaflet on Rights-Based Approaches to Climate Action to negotiators and civil society actors alike. QUNO continues to support the international climate change negotiations by engaging groups and individual negotiators through quiet diplomacy to ensure that climate action is effective, fair, and ambitious. Lindsey, and Programme Assitant Detmer Yens Kremer also spoke at press conferences regarding interfaith organizing, available here (for Lindsey) and here (for Detmer). To learn more about the negotiations, Lindsey shares her experiences and perspectives at COP25 in The COP of Sharpened Knives and Damage Controlavailable below.
