Meeting from 4-15 June in Bonn, Germany for their annual mid-year session, delegates to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) made progress on defining the scope of national contributions, which would serve as the building blocks of a new multilateral agreement on climate change.

The idea of national contributions, or “intended nationally determined contributions” (INDCs), emerged after a protracted 38-hour negotiating session at the end of last year’s annual Conference of the Parties (COP) held in Warsaw, Poland. Sources say that the exchanges seen during these past two weeks in Bonn demonstrated a decided shift towards more formal negotiations on the scope, content, and timing of countries’ 2020 contributions, as well as on other draft elements of the new climate agreement.
