Negotiations - United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia


Since 2013, ESCWA has been providing technical support to Arab negotiators on climate change through regional capacity-building workshops on climate change negotiations, which ESCWA organizes with the League of Arab States, in partnership with UNEP and UNESCO.

The Arab Group of climate change negotiators participates in these biannual workshops, which are called for under ESCWA resolution 329 (XXX) and mandated by the Council of Arab Minsters Responsible for the Environment (CAMRE) and the Arab Ministerial Water Council (AMWC).

These workshops tackle negotiations under the UNFCCC and the Paris Agreement, in addition to other issues including access to finance, technology and scientific knowledge to increase understanding of impact and response measures.
