3rd ASEAN Climate Change Partnership Conference Aims for Global Influence
The 3rd ASEAN Climate Change Partnership Conference (ACCPC), convened by the ASEAN Working Group on Climate Change (AWGCC), focused on strengthening ASEAN’s efforts in preparation for the 28th Session of the Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC (UNFCCC COP 28) that will be held in November 2023 in Dubai, UAE. The conference was hosted by Cambodia with support from the Federal Government of Germany through Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.
As one of the most important modalities for ASEAN to increase its influence at the upcoming UNFCCC COP 28, the AWGCC along with relevant ASEAN sectoral bodies and partners shared their insights on potential collaboration and entry points that ASEAN might explore to enhance ASEAN’s visibility at the UNFCCC COP 28.
The 3rd ACCPC also provided a platform for the AWGCC to exchange information with relevant partners and other ASEAN sectoral bodies to ensure well-coordinated and integrated approaches to address climate change in the region.
The outcomes of the 3rd ACCPC were in line with the key objectives of the newly commenced ASEAN-German Climate Action Programme. Key achievements of the meeting included CAP’s support to ASEAN in preparation for UNFCCC COP 28 through initiatives such as the organisation of ASEAN side events, negotiation trainings, and capacity building.
