Capacity Development for Climate Change Negotiations for the Arab Countries


Upon a request for support through Technical Cooperation from the League of Arab States (LAS), ESCWA jointly with the LAS conducted between 22 and 24 October 2013 a regional training workshop on “Capacity Development for Climate Change Negotiations for the Arab Countries” in Amman, Jordan. The workshop was hosted by the ESCWA Technology Centre at the facilities of the Jordanian Royal Scientific Society and attended by 16 participants from nine Member States. ESCWA was represented by its Regional Advisor on Environment and Water Ralf Klingbeil and First Economic Affairs Officer at the Water Resources Section Tarek Sadek. The ESCWA-LAS training course contributed to enhanced knowledge and strengthened capacity of representatives and negotiators from Arab countries to adequately address issues related to climate change and the respective national concerns for mitigation and adaptation actions for upcoming future negotiation processes on climate change. With the acquired knowledge the Arab negotiators and representatives are better equipped to address climate change related negotiations at regional and global level.
