01 - 12 Dec 2014 Paris Time Workshop — Lima, Peru

20th Session of the Conference of the Parties (COP) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and 10th Session of the Conference of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (COP 20/COP MOP 10)



Lima was the last opportunity to influence the "national contributions" (mitigation commitments) that countries offer in the first quarter of 2015, and one of the last in a multilateral environment to inject new ideas into the framing of the 2015 agreement.

The IEA communicated its key messages to delegations and stakeholders through the events below, The Way Forward: Five Key Actions To Achieve A Low Carbon Energy Sector (see also press release and launch presentation) and our Energy, Climate Change and the Environment publication. We also discussed energy-climate issues with key decision-makers in bilateral meetings.
