The June Momentum for Climate Change is a series of online events being conducted under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change process. It aims to give UNFCCC parties and other stakeholders the opportunity to continue exchanging views and sharing information in order to maintain momentum in the UNFCCC process and to showcase how climate action is progressing under the special circumstances caused by COVID-19.
The events will be held under the guidance of the chairs of the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) and the Subsidiary Body of Implementation (SBI), and with the support of the UNFCCC secretariat. They are taking place at the time that SBSTA and SBI were originally scheduled to meet in Bonn, Germany.
They will include advancing technical work under the constituted bodies, as well as providing a platform for information exchange and engagement on other work being done under the UNFCCC, including on adaptation, mitigation, science, finance, technology, capacity-building, transparency, gender, Action on Climate Empowerment, and the preparation and submission of nationally determined contributions.
Formal negotiations and decision-making are not envisaged for these events; they will take place at the Subsidiary Body sessions that have been rescheduled to take place in October of this year.
