The 7th Durban Forum on Capacity-building will convene on 3 May, during the UN Climate Change Conference taking place in Bonn, Germany, from 30 April to 10 May 2018. The overarching topic of the Forum is ‘Enhancing capacities for the implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions in the context of the Paris Agreement’.
The meeting will also address: enhancing institutional, technical, relational and strategic capacities for implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs); building capacities for integrating cross-cutting issues, such as gender responsiveness, human rights and indigenous peoples’ knowledge, into NDC implementation; and building capacities for the tracking of and reporting on the implementation and impacts of NDC-related actions, and the finance used to support these actions.
