NEWS: Register now for workshop on UNFCCC negotiations (20-22 Nov 2012, Doha)

The United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) is partnering with UK sustainability consultancy AEA and the CDKN Advocacy Fund to invite representatives from United Nations Member States to participate in a workshop on Negotiating Effectively Under the UNFCCC, to take place in Doha from the 20 to 22 November 2012.

The main target audience of the workshop is climate negotiators from relatively poor and climate vulnerable countries, and it is only open to negotiators who will have accreditation as part of a Member State delegation at the COP18 conference.

The workshop will aim to provide participants with the information, skills and techniques needed to participate effectively in the COP18 conference and in UNFCCC negotiation sessions thereafter.  The course will provide an overview of the UNFCCC negotiations and their outcomes to-date, and will also incorporate sessions focusing on key issues on the negotiation table at COP18.  For more information and registration please visit:

In order to ensure that the training is best tailored to the needs, skills and expectations of negotiators particularly from poorest and most climate vulnerable countries, we would like to ask for your support in answering some short questions that will help us to tailor and target our training most effectively.  To participate in this short questionnaire, please go to

1.    Select “Login as a guest”
2.    On the right side of the page, select  “Multilateral Diplomacy”
3.    Choose “Face-to-face courses”, then, “Negotiating Effectively Under the UNFCCC”
4.    In the space “Clef d’inscription”, please type in “UNITAR” as your password.
5.    On the new page that opens, select “Training Needs Assessment”

Participation in this assessment is entirely optional, and all answers will be treated as confidential (will not be used or shared for any other purpose).

Please note that places are limited and due to high demand, hence we encourage interested participants to register as soon as possible. Applicants from poorest and most climate vulnerable countries will be eligible to receive participation support, with thanks to the CDKN Advocacy Fund.
