The Secretariat of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) has launched an interactive web portal to support the ‘Talanoa Dialogue,’ an international conversation on progress in tackling climate change and ways to increase ambition in implementing the long-term objective of the Paris Agreement adopted at COP 23. 

The Portal will be open throughout 2018 for submissions from all countries and other stakeholders, including business, investors, cities, regions and civil society on three central questions: Where are we? Where to we want to go? and How do we get there?

Countries and non-Party stakeholders will be contributing ideas, recommendations and information that can assist the world in taking climate action to the next level in order to meet the objectives of the Paris Agreement and support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The Dialogue was launched at the UN Climate Change Conference COP23 in Bonn in November 2017 and will run throughout 2018. The Paris Agreement's central goal is keep the global average temperature rise to below 2C degrees and as close as possible to 1.5C.
