COP23 – Accelerating the Paris Agreement

COP23 – Accelerating the Paris Agreement

The 23rd Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), COP23 will take place on 6-17 November 2017 in Bonn, Germany. Fiji is presiding over COP23 in Bonn with the support of the Government of Germany.

Norton Rose Fulbright has been tracking and reporting on the progress of climate change negotiations and the implications across our core industry sectors since COP15 in 2009. 

Our dedicated COP23 microsite has been created to provide you with an analysis of the climate negotiations to date, analysis from our teams around the world on ‘hot topics’ as well as legal updates from developments in the COP23 negotiations in Bonn as they happen.

Our aim is to help you understand the potential opportunities and challenges that COP23 and implementation of the Paris Agreement goals may have on your business. From climate finance to technology innovation, emissions abatement to energy transitions, our global team specialises in translating international trends to local opportunities.
