Dear RINGO Colleagues,
The UN Climate Change Dialogues, organized by the SBI and SBSTA Chairs, will take place virtually from Nov 23 – 4 December, 2020. They are intended to “provide a platform for Parties and other stakeholders to showcase progress made in 2020 and exchange views and ideas across the subsidiary bodies and COP agendas mandated for 2020.” You will find more specific information at this link, including the overview list and daily schedule.
Each observer constituency has been asked to invite members to offer up to 4 “special events” during the Climate Change Dialogues (see description below), which will be listed on the UNFCCC website. All special events should relate to topics under discussion at the Dialogues. The deadline for proposing a special event is Monday, November 16, 2020.
Given this short deadline, RINGO has decided to have members who want to organize special events express their interest directly to the Secretariat via this link. RINGO will not hold a selection process for the up to 4 limit established by the Secretariat. Instead this quota will be chosen on a first-come basis. When using this link, please make sure to list RINGO as the answer to the first question.
Best, Tracy and Beth
