COP24, to be held in Katowice, Poland from 2-14 December 2018, will be the most important session in international climate change negotiations since the adoption of the Paris Agreement in 2015. Headline outcomes needed at COP 24 include:

· completion and adoption of the Paris Agreement Work Programme (PAWP), which aims to deliver the package of rules needed to operationalise and implement the Paris Agreement, and

· concrete outputs from the Talanoa Dialogue, which aims to present the scientific case and create political momentum for Parties to increase mitigation ambition and action, and to reflect this in revised nationally determined contributions (NDCs) to be communicated by 2020.

Damon will present on where things currently stand in the lead up to Katowice, and on expectations for COP24 on the PAWP and the process happening under the Talanoa Dialogue. He will focus in particular on priorities of vulnerable countries – Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and Small Island Developing States (SIDS).
