The Intra-ACP GCCA+ Second Regional Technical Meeting (RTM) taking place on 12th and 14th July, 2021.
In preparation for COP26, Technical Experts of the OACPS Regional Organisations and OACPS UNFCCC Negotiators will participate in the virtual Second Regional Technical Meeting (RTM) on 12th and 14th July 2021, to discuss priority climate actions and determine alignment of messaging and advocacy actions for the OACPS Member States and regions.
As part of its specific objectives, the Intra-ACP Intra-ACP GCCA+ Programme contributes to strengthening the capacities of OACPS regions and countries to undertake regional and national adaptation and mitigation actions in response to the challenges caused by the impacts of climate change.
In this context, the Programme hosts a series of technical meetings with OACPS regions, during which OACPS priority issues are discussed. Therefore, the second Regional Technical Meeting (RTM) is being organised on 12th and 14th July 2021. Participants will include representatives from the Secretariat of the OACPS, the Intra-ACP GCCA+ Programme, the six OACPS regions and OACPS UNFCCC climate negotiators.
The meeting will serve as a platform to discuss priority climate actions with implementing OACPS regional organisations in the Intra-ACP GCCA+ Programme, and determine alignment of messaging and advocacy actions for the OACPS Member States and regions in view of COP26 scheduled to be held in Glasgow in November 2021.
The technical discussion aims to:
- Identify initial key issues for OACPS countries in preparation for COP26;
- Outline joint advocacy, communication and outreach activities before, at and beyond COP26; and
- Agree on a possible date for the Special meeting of the Subcommittee on Sustainable Development in preparation for COP26, taking into consideration the OACPS regions’ planned activities in October;
The outcome of the meeting will provide input to the Special meeting of the Subcommittee on Sustainable Development which will be convened to focus on OACPS preparations for the 26th session of the Conference of Parties (COP26) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), tentatively taking place in November 2021. Regional organisations will be invited to participate in the Subcommittee on Sustainable Development.
