What are the official Side Events at COP22
Official side events are a platform for admitted observer organizations, which have limited speaking opportunities in the formal negotiations, to engage with Parties and other participants for knowledge sharing, capacity building, networking and exploring actionable options for meeting the climate challenge.
UN agencies, admitted observer organizations and those Parties that partner with observers present their work or foster discussions on key issues, often engaging the audience in a Q&A session.
The official side event program for COP 22/CMP 12/CMA 1 contain over 200 events focused on major issues in the Convention process.The full schedule is available here: Full Schedule of Side Events at COP22
